As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[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.

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.
