I want to create a big window and then have the user create another window inside of the original window. Will AcuCobol allow this process?
The user will then create controls on the created window.
The reference manual, procedure division statements, DISPLAY statement, "DISPLAY WINDOW" shows this:
[ UPON new-window ]
So your window can be created relative to the pre-existing window. From the manual:
The LINE NUMBER phrase sets the top line of the subwindow. In this context, line number one refers to the top line of the current floating window.
