    Re: pbFocusable :cCJGridColumn

    OnSetDisplayMetrics is too late.

    You need to augment DrawCell and set pbFocusable before the forward send.

    See DrawCell method in cCjGridColumn.pkg

    Have you tried "File | Parse Project" after opening the workspace. Tick everything and then marvel that your program ever did anything you expected.

    One of the main USP of DataFlex is the backward compatibility. I for one would not be very happy if the language was changed in ways that broke existing code. I still have icode (DataFlex version...
