Getting to the root of what you are asking, are you really asking if you can get an Exclusive Lock on a Display Screen ?
Depending on your need, you could Duplicate the screen into QTEMP and then OVRDSPF to the QTEMP version. It would get you exclusive use of the display.

( I used to use this when we were changing Menu Screens throughout the day - and we needed to recompile them in production mid-day )

From pgmA i want to test if pgmB's display file pgmBD is in use.

In my copius notes i've saved throughout the years I cannot find
anything about this.

Nor can i find anything searching rpg400-l or google.

Anyone have a technique or code for doing this?

Thanks for any help,
