Took some time to install eComStation 2.0rc4 and have a further look at that topic
, but why don't you just call the API calls you mentioned ? VioPopUp must be called together with VioEndPopUp. All these API calls seem to be located in "viocalls.dll".
These calls are not defined within VA Smalltalk 6.0, therefore you must add them manually. On the other hand all OS/2 programming infos are vanishing very fastly even on the Internet
How to define an additional function call can be read in the thread "Extending DLL search path on WinXP" in this forum. Even the signatures for these calls can still be found on the Internet.
Some thoughts have to be done about the calling conventions ...
But again - no practical tests - just thoughts, how it can be done !?
