I noticed in Appendix J by Sharon Weinstrom Buntz that the section on the
pfc_open event gives an example for using the pfc_open() event to open a sheet
by calling the frame windows pfc_open(). She appears to have inherited from
PowerBuilder's message object and uses the enhanced object to store not only
the window name, but any parameters passed to the opening window as well. I
could not find the enhanced message object in the PFC. Does one exist? If
not, is there any way I could get the enhanced message object along with the
code she places in the pfc_open() event of the frame to process the message
object. I think I could extend the message object myself, but I suspect
Sharon's solution is more complete.
