The minimize as button does have some capabilities to be positioned (see My-T-Soft Help | User Guide | IV Other Information | Advanced user Notes, Button Position), but this does not sound like the solution you are searching for. Most high-level development environments enable Shell (or spawn, or CreateProcess, or WinExec, or Launch) capabilities, that can integrate with the Developer's Kit. For a quick overview, you can see some of the options in IMG's Developers Corner ("http://www.imgpresents.com/imgdev.htm") As a quick overview, using the Developer's Kit, one can completely control the keyboard so it can be positioned, sized, and the appropriate panels displayed as desired. When an OnEnter / OnExit Event scripting is supported in the host environment, the ability to bring up the keyboard for one field (at a specific location), then "hide" the keyboard, and then bring it up again (perhaps in a different configuration) are all accessible via the Developer's Kit. When you review the Developer's Kit material, if supported in the host environment, note that we always recommend you simply move the keyboard off-screen to "hide" it from the user, and use field events to "restore" the keyboard on-screen (at the desired size, layout, and position).
