[archive] Positioning a window

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 31 August 2004]

I have a modal window displaying data and a tab-control.
(Max lines 55 - Max cols 80).

On the tab, there are some buttons to click to call subsequent programs. These subprograms are made to display just above the tab with the same dimensions.

Now, users can choose to maximize their windows in a setting screen.

My question :
If the user chooses to maximize there windows and the modal window is displayed with maximums as discrived above, ... when he clicks a button on the tab ... how can I make sure that the called program is displayed just above the tab-cotrol.

I tried to give the Col and Line to the subprogram, but it doesn't display right.

Any suggestions ?

Windows are positioned on the screen using SCREEN LINE and SCREEN COLUMN, have you used these?
