>The only way to do this is with forms 6i?
Why do you say this?
We use 6i (PC) Client tools to create our Forms;
and "compile" the forms for use in a Client/Server environment.
I take the EXACT same *FMB files and compile them for both 9iAS R1 & R2 (webform) Servers. This works fine & lasts a long time.

Are you saying your cannot create the window or you can not get it to display without a "focus" element? The work around for that is to create a teeny tiny little object and hide it in some on screen clutter. That will fool the system into displaying a "graphics" only window.
I am suprised you did not have the same problem in 6i. I had it back in D2000.
Of course, anacEdent is correct in her assessment of your problem .... never mind.
