Q63798: Entering QB 4.50 with Multi-Module Program Requires Full Menus
Article: Q63798 Product(s): See article Version(s): 4.50 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900703-108 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 13-JUL-1990 Loading a multiple-module program into the QuickBASIC environment (QB.EXE) requires having the Full Menus option on (located on the Options menu). When you enter QB.EXE without Full Menus on, a dialog box with the following message displays: Multiple-module programs require Full Menus. Switch to Full Menus and continue loading? Choosing either OK or Cancel switches the screen back to the MS-DOS output screen and then displays, "Press any key to continue," at the bottom of the screen. Pressing a key returns you to the editor screen. If you chose Cancel, no program files will be loaded, and the Full Menus option remains off. If you chose OK, the multiple modules (specified in the .MAK file associated with your program) are now successfully loaded, and the Full Menus option will now be on. This behavior occurs in Microsoft QuickBASIC version 4.50 for MS-DOS. Microsoft's intent for providing the (optional) shortened menus in 4.50 is to simplify the initial environment for people who are first learning QuickBASIC. This information does NOT apply to QuickBASIC versions earlier than 4.50, since earlier versions don't have an option to turn off Full Menus and display shortened menus. The QBX.EXE environment in Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) 7.00 also does not have an option to display shortened menus.
