Hello.

I’m trying to deal with a problem I suspect has to do with MS Terminal Server.  I read this post:

http://www.tokeshi.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=2005

It spoke about Citrix and I wonder if the following problem sounds the same to you:

If you run any application through a Citrix client or a Terminal Services Client where the scenario is as follows:

You open a response window, say window_A.  From the response window A you open a second response window, say window_B.  The only thing is, there is a delay of about 10 seconds before window B actually opens.  While you are waiting for window B to open, you minimize the session’s client to do something on you own desktop.  Once you return to the session, you find that window_B has indeed opened but doesn’t have the focus.  Instead, window_A has the focus.

Depending on the language the application is written in, in my case PowerBuilder, you will, in most cases, run into the problem of not being able to change the focus to window_B since window A is a response window and won’t let you leave it.

If you think your can help, kindly let me know what I can do.  The solution I'm looking for should not drastically change my current PB6.5 application is there are may response windows and to retest the entire up is not an option with this project.
