iSeries display losing background


iSeries: I have a screen (pgm a) which calls a window (pgm b) then it call a second window for a search (pgm c) .  When pgm c returns to pgm b, the backgroup and window lines are gone. I've included screen prints.  

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi Lynn,

Make sure each dspf is compiled with RSTDSP(*YES):

Non of our screen have RSTDSP(*yes).  ?  Will adding it cause other issues? This is the only place we have problems.

Sorry.  Long day.  Let me check compile options.
Lynn HarrisAuthor Commented:
Thank Gary!  Yes that fixed it.  
Ours is set to *no by default.  Are there concerns with changing it to yes?  Any insight greatly appreciated.

FYI:  we have the dummy assume record in all our screen dds(s).  Including these which are having problems.

Hi Lynn,

Complicated question, but in general, RSTDSP(*YES) causes more data transfer traffic (that was a big deal back when remote offices were connected with a 56K DDS circuit, but not so much not), but isn't likely to cause other problems.  

As always, you should test before deploying to production.

Note that ASSUME needs to be used in conjunction with KEEP.  You may be able to add KEEP to the earlier record formats and get the same result as RSTDSP(*YES) in the final screen, but I prefer one change to multiple changes, if possible.
