Omnis refusing to change $top of a field
So, to be clear, after entering a code, the entry box moves down the
height of the sub window, lets say 30 points, so you just add 30 each
time to the $top figure, and then the previous $top figure is used for
the subwindow $top?
So, on a refresh, you set $top to 0, or 1… and that is what fails?
Or something else?
Maybe the code that is calculating $top is wrong when the effective list
Maybe it doesn’t think the list is empty at that point.
Hard to guess without seeing any code…
