When I display a windowed selection list over the current display file format, data from FIRST INSTANCE of this file format is returned to the background(behind the selection list). When I exit the selection list, current format is redisplayed with current data. Window is diplayed from a called program and "assume" keyword is used.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have run into this before and have found compiling the popup window display file with RSTDSP(*NO) nromally corrects this problem. You can change this on a DSPF already created with the CHGDSPF command as well.

Hope this helps.

    1) Create a record format called DUMMY 2) Place a ' ' (blank)at pos 1 line 1 3) Specify OVERLAY keyword for the format 4) In the program: WRITE DUMMY then EXFMT WINDOW (replace WINDOW with the name of your window format) Compile with RSTDSP *YES & DFRWRT *YES (or use CHGDSPF) That'll fix it!
