Assign a character string to a function key
__SetFunction( <nFunctionKey>, [<cString>] ) --> NIL
<nFunctionKey> is a number in the range 1..40 that represent the function key to be assigned.
<cString> is a character string to set. If <cString> is not specified, the function key is going to be set to NIL releasing by that any previous __SetFunction() or SetKey() for that function.
__SetFunction() always return NIL.
__SetFunction() assign a character string with a function key, when this function key is pressed, the keyboard is stuffed with this character string. __SetFunction() has the effect of clearing any SetKey() previously set to the same function number and vice versa.
nFunctionKey Key to be set
1 .. 12 F1 .. F12
13 .. 20 Shift-F3 .. Shift-F10
21 .. 30 Ctrl-F1 .. Ctrl-F10
31 .. 40 Alt-F1 .. Alt-F10
SET FUNCTION command is preprocessed into __SetFunction() function during compile time.
// Set F1 with a string CLS __SetFunction( 1, "I Am Lazy" + Chr( 13 ) ) cTest := Space( 20 ) @ 10, 0 SAY "type something or F1 for lazy mode " GET cTest READ ? cTest
Harbour use 11 and 12 to represent F11 and F12, while CA-Cl*pper use 11 and 12 to represent Shift-F1 and Shift-F2.
