First I could not even attempt the coding in "C", but reading the manuals I
searched the following page for "hidden":
Field Header Section (QDFFFINF)
Offset Bit Type Variable Name
2 2 CHAR(1) WDFFFIOA
Field attribute. X'01' indicates Constant (see structure QDFFFCON, Constant
Field Header Table (QDFFFCON)), X'02' indicates Output (O), X'03' indicates
Message (M), X'04' indicates Input (I), X'05' indicates Both (B), X'06'
indicates Hidden (H), and X'07' indicates Program to System (P).
Maybe that would help you find the type of field.

I used this program as a starting point and successfully retrieved
I needed the following:
Format name, field name, field I/O attribute (Input, Output, Both,
Hidden), field type and field length.
As wrote earlier my failure was with hidden fields.
I found one place where hidden fields names could be retrieved and
another place where I could find (probably) these fields necessary
attributes - but without field names!
Names where available for all but hidden....
