I belive your answer is in the infds data structure, if you are
writing in RPG. Other languages I'm sure have it's equivalent
the calling program could get the info needed and pass it to
the window program.

Subject: Display Screen Sizes


Hello,

does anyone know a way to force a called window program to open the
display file with the size of the calling display file?

I have a window program, that is called by some programs that use 80
column displays, some that use 132 column displays. The window program
always seems to display at the 80 column size regardless of the
calling programs display size.

Is there a special DDS jeyword I need to use, or maybe an API that can
return this information?

Thanks in advance,
-Paul Jackson
