Have a fairly large Forms application running in a Unix environment.

Problem is now many customers are running with 2 or more terminals and although our main canvas appears on terminal #1 the built-in popups always appear in the middle as in:

1. If they are using 1 terminal the popups appear in the middle of the screen.

2. If they are using 2 terminals the popup appears split between the two.

3. If they use 3 terminals the popup appears in the middle of terminal 2.

etc. etc.

Of course we wish for them to appear always in the middle of terminal #1.

There doesn't seem to be anything within Forms to regulate this and our X-motif programmer has tried a couple things that in the end almost work, but speed wise are not acceptable.

Your team can probably get all the popups to appear at a fixed location without much work or execution overhead. (0,0) is the upper left corner. (50,50) is inside from the upper left corner a small amount. Not the perfect solution, but possibly better than what you've got.

relative to the form's upper left corner--so possitioning code runs onthe application server.
