  • Screen formats erasing previous screen

    Hello again,
    I have a process that uses several window subfiles. The first displays a window subfile and based on the selection, another window subfile and finally either a screen or error window.

    The window subfiles display one on top of the other but when the error window displays, it erases everything behind it.

    I have a dummy format in every program's display file with assume and overlay, plus a one byte field on the dummy format.

    What am I missing?

    Mike.

    I also use a dummy record format in all of my display files...but I limit myself to the ASSUME keyword only.

      A consultant told me how to do it years (decades) ago and it's worked for me every time since except this time. I'm beginning to think I'm missing a keyword because of the many windows already overlaying each other.

        If these windows are in separate display files, then check that the Restore Display (RSTDSP) flag is set to *YES on any display file that can be overlaid.
