SET NOTIFY [CURSOR] ON | OFF
- Specifies whether data-related messages should appear in the status bar.
- Enables the display of certain system messages. (Default)
- Disables the display of certain system messages.
System messages display in the graphical, not character-based, status bar at the bottom of the main Visual FoxPro window.
When SETВ NOTIFYВ CURSOR is set to OFF, Visual FoxPro suppresses all data-related messages from displaying in the status bar. These messages include alias, data source, record pointer, record count and exclusive/record unlocked status.
The setting of SETВ NOTIFYВ CURSOR does not affect SETВ NOTIFY.
You can use SET("NOTIFY",1) to return the current value of SETВ NOTIFYВ CURSOR.
SETВ NOTIFY disables the display of messages that appear even if SETВ TALK is OFF.
