Fox Gurus -
I have been wrestling all day with something that shouldn't be quite this
hard. I am using VFP 3.0 (release 12/15/95) under Windows 95.
I have a form that I would like to timeout after a few minutes of inactivity.
I see the ReadTimeout property of a formset is supposed to do this. Great! I
create a formset, and set the ReadTimeout property to 5. I set the Deactivate
method to THISFORMSET.Release, but nothing happens.
The manual says the WindowType property of the formset must be either 2 (Read)
or 3 (Read Modal) for this to work, but the only choices it gives me when
designing the form are 0 (Modeless) and 1 (Modal). The manual says the
WindowType property is read-only at run time, but I find I CAN change it to 2
or 3 (via the formset Activate method), but only if it was originally 0.
I have not found any relevent articles in the Microsoft knowledge base.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
