noshow

The noshow statement temporarily disables the output of text and graphics.


Parameters

No parameters.


Description

This statement tells Panorama to suppress all output of text and graphics. Only output that is directly generated by Panorama will be suppressed. For example, the output generated by the SortUp or FormulaFill commands will be suppressed. However, output that is generated by the operating system will not be suppressed. Primarily this means that when switching from one window to another the display will not be suppressed. Output will be disabled until the procedure is finished, or until an endnoshow statement is encountered.

Here is an example that performs several operations on the current database, but only updates the display once.
