Clear Function button?

6 posts in this topic

Hi folks...Just want to know IF there exists a "clear function buffer" command...I know about the clear FILE command/handle, but is there something to clear the buffer of a repeatedly function?

You'll have to explain what exactly you mean a lot better than you did, because I have no idea what you're asking about.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Do you mean the Adlib stuff? AdlibDisable() would do it.

i have a while-wend opperation...sometimes i get a "stack overflow" message...It is a LOTTO program i wrote a couple of years ago where you actually "click" a button, and it will throw out 6 numbers. It so happens, that sometimes the SAME number gets kicked out, but i have a "Try Again" button instead that will pop-up and ask you to try again...it WILL work when it gets a diff no. So, i have decided to take out the "Try Again" button and throw the function to just repeat itself...instead of hitting "Try Again"

It's called a recursion error, and there's a Wiki article about how to avoid it when it's not necessary (such as in this case). You shouldn't have a function call itself, or call another function that loops back to the first function unless there's a good reason for it.
