[CLOSED] Dialogue commands reference

I'm trying to maintain som old webFOCUS 4.3.5 code and it uses a lot of dialogue commands.

From context I can usually deduce what they do but it would be really nice with some documentation/reference of these dialogue commands.

Does anyone have/know where I can find such documentation?

Apart from the manuals, no.

But there are a lot of old FOCUS programmers on the forum that can answer questions.

Pity the lost knowledge of an old programmer!

Peter, is this WebFOCUS 4.3.5 or Developer Studio? If I remember correctly, even those early versions of Dev Studio came with a number of help files in .chm format.

WebFOCUS DS 8.0.06/08 DS/AS
WebFOCUS RS 8.0.08 (Linux/IBM i)
WebFOCUS Client 8.0.06 (Linux)
