Jeff,

Don't know if you are aware but FB4 is now available. This FN is in 
FB4(in Rntm Appearance.Incl)and was in at least some of the later 
releases of FB3. However, (and this is from memory) I believe the 
appearance runtime (via Rntm Appearance.incl) didn't arrive until 
version 6 or 7 (i.e. 3.6 or 3.7).   The code that directly supports 
this FN is not large and could be typed in, but depending on which 
version of Rntm Appearance.Incl you have it might break other code. Of 
course, if you don't have the appearance runtime with 3.2 you might 
need to use another method(this might not be entirely true on second 
thought. Again, the code in the runtime is fairly brief, but I should 
defer to Robert Purves since he wrote it  and I'm not clear on the 
protocol for posting FB4 runtime code for someone using FB3). Have you 
looked at posting a Dialog event of type _userDialog ? This is 
documented under the Dialog statement in FB3/FB4.  I don't have an 
example at my finger tips (but one might be in the examples on the CD), 
but I remember additional information can be passed. Maybe check he 
Event% Event & statements/functions.
