PUSH POPUP Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Places a menu definition on a stack of menu definitions in memory.

PUSH POPUP MenuName

Parameters

MenuName
Specifies the name of the menu whose definition is placed on the stack. The menu can also be a Visual FoxPro system menu.

Remarks

When used with POP POPUP, PUSH POPUP makes it possible for you to save a menu definition, make changes to the menu definition, and then restore the menu definition to its original state.

Menu definitions are placed on and removed from the stack in last-in, first-out order. Menu definitions take up memory, so every PUSH POPUP should have a corresponding POP POPUP to make sure your application's memory usage does not grow unnecessarily.

Example

In the following example, a menu named popExam is created. The menu definition is pushed to the stack and then modified. The original menu is then restored by popping it off the stack.

DEFINE POPUP popExam FROM 5,5
DEFINE BAR 1 OF popExam PROMPT 'One'
DEFINE BAR 2 OF popExam PROMPT 'Two'
DEFINE BAR 3 OF popExam PROMPT 'Three'
DEFINE BAR 4 OF popExam PROMPT 'Four'
ACTIVATE POPUP popExam NOWAIT
PUSH POPUP popExam 
WAIT 'Original Popup' WINDOW
RELEASE BAR 2 OF popExam 
WAIT 'Modified Popup. Original Popup is pushed to a stack.' WINDOW
POP POPUP popExam 
WAIT 'Original Popup restored' WINDOW
DEACTIVATE POPUP popExam 
RELEASE POPUP popExam
