C++ singl char.data ent prob som W98sys.

By gerryp ·
Our program is written in C++ (32 bit). It
is being used at a number of
sites around the country. It has a number
of data entry screens and works
just fine on most computers running
Windows, 95, 98, 2000 and NT. However,
on a few computers we are having a
problem.

Each of the fields is either alpha or
numeric, never mixed. In the alpha
entry screens the fields that accept
multiple character entries work fine.
However, those that accept only one
character, for example: sex ___ (Enter M
or F). Will not display the 'M' and not
accept it. It will display and
accept the 'F.' In another it will neither
display nor accept any of the
three possible entries.

The code for the 'getchar' routine is
trivially different from the get a long
string routine. We're completely
stumped. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

Thanks Ger!

C++ singl char.data ent prob som W98sys.

Could you clarify what user interface mechanism is in use? Is it a Windows GUI? It sounds more like you are implementing a text based interface based on maybe a VT100 or 3270 type format. Is this a correct assumption?

(NOTE: I think you can reject this answer, add a clarification note, and keep your question open for additional answers.)
