I'm using PG Pro. However, don't let my poor programming habits stand as a
typical result in PG. I created the edit field myself, not through a PG
"design a-window." As such, I have to dim all my edit fields as the
application goes to the background. In this one case, not that I noticed
any others, the edit field blinked. Using EDIT FIELD 0 stopped it.
