This is an interesting refinement. Thank you for sharing it. I like the idea
but would like to go one step farther.  Is it possible to find the location
of a field on the screen? Not the cursor location, but rather the field
itself?

I ask this because I also have the dropdown box appear in an error situation
 and the cursor is not often in the field when an error has been made so
row&column of the cursor is not helpful in that instance.

Booth,

Joe put you on the right track, but I would like to expand a little as to
the
way we have locatable windows.

First we return the cursor location when someone wants a popup and use that
as
parameters to the window program itself. Within the window program,
unfortunately we have the window number of rows and columns hardcoded, and
check
the incoming parameters against the window size to make sure that it is
within
the 24x80 viewable area and adjust accordingly.

This way, if a change is made in pgmA display location the popup will
automagically relocate itself.
