Character Screen Works, GUI Does Not
« on: August 09, 2013, 10:17:29 AM »
I am creating a simple screen.  Two fields.  The Before Process in the Definition defines @KEY, reads @RECORD and loads @RECORD<6> into @WORK<1> which is displayed on the screen (lines of text).

@WORK<1> is a multivalue field.  The Before Process invokes the text editior.  The user is allowed to manipulate text.

When the user presses F2 to exit the text editor and goes to the second field the length of the MV field is displayed and if it is greater than 350 it displays an error and returns the user to the field to shorten it.  Once things are good it will write the new field to the file (WRITEV) and exit the screen.

Everything works in character mode.  The text field displays, etc.  However, it GUI the text field is blank.  REGEN.GUI does nothing to fix the problem.

Any ideas.
