Commands and Statements

Command SET SCOREBOARD Foundation

Sets whether messages from READ and MemoEdit() are displayed.

SET SCOREBOARD on | OFF | <lToggle>
<lToggle> is a logical expression which must appear in parentheses. Instead of a logical expression, the option ON can be specified for the value .T. (true) or OFF for the value .F. (false). When .T. or ON is specified, messages are displayed on the screen during the execution of READ or MemoEdit().

The command SET SCOREBOARD sets whether the messages generated by READ and MemoEdit() are displayed or turned off. If displayed, the messages are output on the uppermost screen row. Messages displayed by READ include the insertion mode, messages about data validation by the RANGE option and testing date values. During MemoEdit(), the insertion mode is displayed and a confirmation question appears if the text buffer is changed and termination occurs by using the Esc key.

SET SCOREBOARD OFF turns these automatic messages off.
