[Stackoverflow] [Progress OpenEdge ABL] Progress-4GL: How to dynamically add a fill-in in a form and take user input in it?

Not open for further replies.


I've a form in a base QAD mfg/pro (ver 10.2) program. I know the names of form, frame and fields. I'dont have access to base program's code modification. I've a wrapper program that access various fields from the existing form using handles, first-child, next-sibling etc.

What I want to do is to add a fill-in into this form/frame from the wrapper program and during runtime, take user input into that field.

I've been able to create text (for label) and fill-in field (called user) in the frame, however, the field is in't enabled.

create fill-in user
name = "txt_user"
row = 7
column = 19
frame = hWidget
visible = true
side-label-handle = lbl_user.

How can I enable the fill-in field txt_user and take input in it?
