Hey all. I LOVE the tabmenu - what a great example of how VFP can reproduce just about everything.

One question: when I run the sample code, the goForm (cfrmMain) is still visible when I close out of the TabMenu.

Is this a known issue?

Is this a known issue?


I had seen the same thing at times but I have not had that happen to me for a few weeks so I believed the problem tohave been resolved. There is a known issue within VFP that if you have a toolbar docked to a toplevel form VFP does not clear the form and it remains visible. The workaround was to ensure that the toolbar is undocked when the form is released.

I added that code to the sample and it is part of the destory code of the tabmenu toolbar class but perhaps I have not fully released everything if you have seen this behaviour. I wonder if anyone out there has any advice around getting the problem sorted once and for all? Its not really an issue in the runtime environment the users execute but it is annoying especially to the developer.

So this should be in the latest code that is available here?

I'll run some tests on it then. Thanks

Yes it is.

I look forward to hearing from you.
