    My "handle spy" tool says:
    1. dbForm is a winclass called "DFentry".
    2. dbComboForm is a winclass called "Edit"

    Re: DF19.1 Debugger Crash

    Sadly No - in theory you should be able to just send the EM_SETCUEBANNER (0x1501) message to the form. But doing so, returns a 0 which means it was unsusccessful.

    For now, your approach for "Hint...

    That's a possibility. It's a very complex view with a diamond relationship and local dd relates.

    Re: Refreshes

    Ya! Timers can be our friend or worst enemy.

    We use the "Entering_Scope" to:
    1. Start a "cIdleHandler"
    2. Set a "DoViewRefresh" property to True
    3. Then let the entering_scope do its thing

    Re: Refreshes

    Hi Edgar,

    Entering_Scope is your best bet - we use the same 'hook' too.

    You probably want to use an OnIdle timer for this (just works better)
    You probably want to check if the...
