The Environment dialog allows you to set up your application’s environment. The selections you make on the Environment dialog will be in effect the next time you run a test of your application.

Environment Settings

Use the Environment Settings page to change your application’s environment.

Exit Confirm: The Exit Confirm check box controls whether the exit confirmation dialog appears when a user exits an application.

Report Mgr Type: The Report Mgr Type combo box lets you choose whether (a) the application’s Report Manager allows both editing and running reports, (b) the Report Manager only allows running reports, or (c) the application administrator can choose (a) or (b) for each user. See Configuring the Report Manager.

Century: You should verify that the Century check box, which activates SET CENTURY ON, and the accompanying Century (ncentury) and Rollover (nyear) parameters are set as you need them. You may also need to set the Strict Date Level combo box, which activates the SET STRICTDATE command.

All other options on the Environment Settings page are standard FoxPro environment settings. Without the Environment dialog, you would have to use the Visual FoxPro SET commands in code to change your application’s environment settings. See your Visual FoxPro documentation if you’re not familiar with the VFP environment settings and SET commands.

App. Language: See Select Application Language.

Tip - Remote Views: The Remote Views page on the Environment dialog is used when creating client-server applications. We’ll reserve our discussion of the Remote Views page for the Creating a Client-Server Application chapter.
