WDWTITLE *BOTTOM not working with a window subfile Published by: Chris Proctor on 13 Apr 2016 view comments(5)

Good morning. I have an issue where I'm trying to display the function keys for a window subfile using the WDWTITLE *BOTTOM keyword, but it doesn't seem to be working the way it does with a normal window (no subfile). I really like the way this keyword displays the text in the border of the window. Does *BOTTOM not work for a subfile? Perhaps I need to do the additional record format with the function key descriptions and overlay the window? It'd be so much slicker to do it in one format if possible.

If I need to use another format, is there a way for me to make it transparent so that the border color will show thru? Thanks for any suggestions.
