Memo window in FoxPro

To avoid problems that sometimes occur when I edit text in the memo window, I have created a special form with an Edit control linked to the memo field. I have a grid in which one of the columns corresponds to the memo field. I have put a code to show the form with the Edit field in the DoubleClick event of the corresponding text field of the memo column. Double clicking brings the form up, but the system memo window still opens simultaneously. How can I prevent it from opening?

Visual FoxPro 6.0.

Thank you.

Add an editbox in the grid column, set it as the current control and set sparse false.

The editbox within the grid will be too small, but will show the beginning oft the text. In click or gotfocus you may call your own editbox window.

Bye, Olaf.

The system edit window is standard VFP functionality.   To prevent the standard behavior in DblClick event you have to place  NODEFAULT  command in the method code.
