  1. Hello,

    AFAIK, there are 2 different locations for messages: message area and message frame. Try using putmess (appends text to a message frame) instead of message (which displays text in a message area).

    Using macro ^message shows the message frame (not a message area).

    EDIT: not sure how about chui (since we use only GUI)

  3. What Operating System do you use, some 64bit?

  4. yes AIX 64 bit ,

    but does that make a difference?

  5. perhaps, but you may better contact CPWR on that issue.

    If it worked in previous versions, but does not work now, it cries to raise a call

  6. Hi Uli,

     Thanks a lot but got the solution the issue was that for displaying frames,uniface uses usys*.frm forms  like usysfram.frm n all ..

    SInce the forms were redirected in our application specific forms it could not find it ....i was surprised that system forms were used for showing message frame ...

    I think it would have been informative if it gave an error message ..

     

    Thanks a lot for your asssitance
