display() function

Maybe you can use:

function void display  (string field)


Use this function to display a specified field on a form. Usually, the 4GL engine displays fields 
automatically, either when the form is opened or when data in a related input field is changed. 
However, there are situations when you need to use these functions to display fields. 
For example, to display stand-alone fields, to display fields that are not in the input 
field TAB sequence, or to send data to the form during batch processes.

display() Displays a single-occurrence field. You cannot use this to display a field for all occurrences. 


string field Indicates the field to be displayed. This can be the field number or a string containing the field name. For example:

		display( "pctstqqq.item"  )

This function can be used in all script types.

See also

display.all(), display.curr.occ(), display.fld(), display.occ()

This function always display the current value of the specified fields.

The current field pointer and form status are always saved when a display 
function is called and then restored when the function has terminated.

Non-database fields must be declared as extern in the program script.

The function display.all(), display.occ(), and display.curr.occ() do not affect stand-alone fields. 
To display a value for a stand-alone field use display() or display.fld().
