my problem is when the valid event fires in my forms after my own error box appears a system error 'Invalid entry, press space to continue' displays in the main foxpro window and locks the screen until spacebar is pressed.
This happened previously and was not solved until Windows 95 was re-installed.
It happens in all forms for all foxpro systems on my PC that worked perfectly before and still work OK on all other PC's.
The valid event uses keypress/keycode so field level validation only fires when enter is pressed, the problem does not arise when the valid event is called at form level using a global variable to mimic the field commit.
The only other problem I have had recently which may/may not be related is losing the path to the VFP default resource file for storing screen positions etc.
My own error messages come from the errormessage event then the 'unwanted' error appears.
