Note: You cannot use the uppercase and lowercase settings of the same letter together in the same cOptionString. Tip: You can disable all IntelliSense functionality by setting EditorOptions to the empty string (""). The default settings are "LQKT".
Designer Value Tips ("T") are information tips associated with items in lists and drop-down controls. These include the following:
Fields in data source lists (tables and views) in Database, View, and Form (Data Environment) designers.
Methods and events in Form and Class Designer method editor procedure drop-down controls.
In Visual FoxPro 9.0, _VFP editor options you specify with the EditorOptions property are persisted between Visual FoxPro sessions.
The Suppress RTF Clipboard option ("X") suppresses copying of color syntax code as rich text (RTF format) when copying from a Visual FoxPro editor and pasting into another editor such as Microsoft Word. With this option set, text is only copied to the clipboard as plain text without any rich formatting.
By default, IntelliSense in Visual FoxPro is set to Automatic. To set IntelliSense to Manual, making it available through keyboard shortcuts or menus, use the lowercase settings instead of uppercase. For example:
_VFP.EditorOptions = "lq" && Sets IntelliSense to Manual. _VFP.EditorOptions = "LQ" && Sets IntelliSense to Automatic.
