Title: How can I use the F10 key in my application without it changing the keyboard focus?
Question:

My application uses the F10 key. However, with isCOBOL the F10 key seems to have some other function such as changing the keyboard focus to the System menu or desktop.

Answer:

With build 371 and later (including isCOBOL 2008), the default keyboard setting for F10 is:

iscobol.key.f10=exception= 

so the F10 key does not terminate the ACCEPT or change the keyboard focus to the COBOL or System menus. 

If you add the following setting in your isCOBOL configuration file:

iscobol.key.f10=exception=10 

then pressing F10 will terminate the ACCEPT with exception value 10 and will not change the keyboard focus to the COBOL or System menus.
