    The two keywords are essentially unrelated, so I don't know any reason to use them together. I could probably make up a reason if I thought about it. As for what they are, definitions are in the DDS keyword entries for display files topic in the Information Center. -- Tom

    Overlay is used when a display record is to remain on the screen when another record is written to the screen. It will keep the original record on the screen if there is no overlap .. one record writes to the top xx rows and the other record does not write to any of those rows.

    "Do not worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older it will avoid you." Joey Adams Check the DDS programmers reference manual .. it will explain overlay.
