Mac Fox 2.5 blows up with Stylewriter II

Post by Steven W. Eng » Mon, 28 Nov 1994 14:28:20



When I print to a StyleWriter II (w/ the version 1.2 driver), Foxbase Pro
for Mac (version 2.5) blows up with a type 1 error. Occurs right at the
end of spooling the first page (generating reports and labels). If I use
use the PROMPT option, and limit the print to 1 page (page 1 to 1, page
12 to 12) it usually will print, but will occasionally blow up. From the
command window, doing a

DISPLAY STATUS TO PRINT

also causes a type 1 error. Doing this:

DISPLAY STATUS TO PRINT NOCONSOLE

works.  This occurs whether printing directly to the StyleWriter II or
using the print driver's Network "Printer Share" capability.

Does version 2.6 fix this problem? What other changes exist between
2.5 and 2.6 for mac other than Power Mac support?

Original poster here. I talked to Microsoft about this today, they are
aware of this problem anmd fixed it in version 2.5c (I had 2.5b). I went
ahead and ordered the 2.6 upgrade.

You must get version 2.5c for the Macintosh.  2.5b is incompatible with
the LaserWriter 300 and Stylewriter printer drivers.

Contact Microsoft for a free update.

As for 2.6, I haven't used it yet.

I had the same problem using a Color StyleWriter.  I upgraded to 2.6 and
RUN Report works fine.  Report under the DataBase Menu won't allow
printing but that not a real problem as long as RUN Report works.

1. Button Shortcut in Fox Mac 2.5

I have a database made in Fox 2.6 Windows and I want the same
fonctionnality for  the button shortcut.

When I press the TAB key I want each button to be select (after fields are
filled) one at a time.

Is there also a possibility for the OK and Cancel(other than Command-.)
button to be automated ?
