Issue 30979  —   Popup form not always positioned correctly to its anchor field

Status:   Solved in 10.2.01

Solution available in patch(es):      MX07    G101

Description:

 Summary:
 Uniface: A popup form is not always positioned correctly to its anchor field.
 Problems can occur when (e.g.) using horizontal/vertical split bars (attached
 to the bottom/right window border) or when the application window is moved.

 Environment:
 +Uniface: Version 9.6.xx
 +Operating System: All Windows versions
 +Database: DBMS independent

 Symptoms:
 A popup form is not always positioned correctly to its anchor field.

 The relative position is not correct when (e.g.) the form with the
 anchor field includes a horizontal split bar that is attached to
 the bottom or a vertical split bar that is attached to the right
 window border, and the anchor field is located below (vertical)
 or to the right of the (horizontal) split bar. When the form is
 maximized then popup form is not moving with its anchor field.

 Another problem can be seen when the application window is moved:
 the popup form will not be moved relative to its anchor field, but
 stays at its place. When the form with the anchor field is moved
 then the popup form will move with its anchor field.

Workaround:

 There is no known workaround for this problem.

Notes:

 Behavior change for popup forms which are too big to fit the
 screen in their default position.

 A popup which does not fit the screen will be clipped by that
 same screen. In previous versions of Uniface the popup was
 centered on the screen and by this disconnecting from its
 anchor field.

 Behavior change popup with title bar:
 When a popup form has a title bar it will not move with
 the anchor. The anchor is used to start the popup form
 in a defined position, after this the end-user can drag
 the form away. Moving the anchor or the originating form
 will not alter the position of the popup form with title
 bar.
