    Vertical scroll bar disappeared with SCREEN

    Thanks! That solved it. Somehow it got changed to 25. I did open another window and that showed 335, but I'm running the actual program right now and that window was 25. I changed it to 1000 and the scroll bar is back.

    Vertical scroll bar disappeared with SCREEN

    The program runs by double-clicking in Windows Explorer and not from either a tab or a command line. The scroll bar used to appear immediately, while the records were being processed and written to the screen. "DONE" is at the very end of the program, so it's not a factor. After the stuff is...

    Vertical scroll bar disappeared with SCREEN

    I have a program I've been using for years that writes various data using SCREEN, basically record number, name, account number dollar amount, then the next record on a new line. Two days ago the window's vertical scroll bar disappeared and I can't scroll back with the mouse either. I didn't...

    Associate file by name rather than extension?

    Is it possible in Windows 7 to associate a file with a program based on the file name not the extension? We download a variety of files that have standard names but all have a .TXT extension. I need to open them in Excel and that means right-click, select Open With ..., select Excel 2016...

    Warn X days before report due

    Just a follow-up on this--I did change it to GT 18 and have been using it for several months without any problems.

    UnLIBRARY command

    I agree that there should be a standard way to return a value. As I wrote in the original suggestion discussion about adding a LIBRARY command, there is always a problem with workarounds because different people will implement different workarounds. There are some related issues, such as TCC...

    System variable with TCC folder path

    I'm not going to get into that. The suggestion is simple and useful.

    System variable with TCC folder path

    You're assuming I'm a developer with a power user machine. I'm not--I'm a lawyer (with no particular programming background ...) and the small firm still uses some DOS software, so we're limited to 32-bit Windows on 2009-era PC's. Plus, VM's would require multiple licenses for other software...

    System variable with TCC folder path

    I'm not looking to use whatever happens to be the current interpreter. What happened is I have both TCC/TCMD 21 and 22 installed. Instead of hardcoding the path for a particular TCC version I want to be able to use a system variable. As I indicated, I know how to add a system variable, which...

    System variable with TCC folder path

    Have the installer create a system variable with the TCC folder path so other programs that require a full path can access it without the full path being hard coded, just %TCC_Dir%\tcc.exe (I do realize I can create one myself, but then it's "not standard".) (I've just started doing a little...

    LIBRARY command (ver 22)

    Passing parameters: With_Params{ @echo off Echo This is the With_Params function in LIBRARY_FILES.txt echo %1 echo %2 echo %3 pause } Command line: With_Params ABC DEF GHI

    LIBRARY command (ver 22)

    Several things about the new LIBRARY command: 1) The files don't require a particular extension. I tried a test file named LIBRARY_FILES.txt and it loaded. Show_Library { @echo off Echo This is the Show_Libary function in LIBRARY_FILES.txt pause } 2) Contents of a function are...

    Add a .btm LIBRARY system

    The command description on page 410 of the manual should mention that TCC has a command-line switch that will prevent loading the default libraries.

    How to? Change TCMD tab font size in window menu

    When I pick the size it does change. But it doesn't stay changed. Maybe there's a miscommunication. I'm talking about Home Edit View ... Help. I called them "tabs" because when I hover over one it changes to a tab shape.

    How to? Change TCMD tab font size in window menu

    How do I change the font size for the tab labels in TCMD? I tried Options > Styles > Font and set that to Extra Large, but when I close and re-open TCMD it's back to the small type.
