KP_Divide key not giving me what i expect

KP_Divide key not giving me what i expect

KP_Divide key not giving me what i expect

Hi, i'm not sure where to post this question. Please let me know if there is a better part of the forum to post this.

I'm using Informix 4GL (11.50. database) on an AIX Unix server (6.1 o/s).

I have code that uses the function keys and keys on the keypad to do certain things. For example, when the F1 key is pressed, i've coded my application to save data.

I have programmed the F2 function key, the backslash (on question mark key) and the divide key (on number pad above the 8) to give me a popup box. It works fine.

However, i'm told that on the F2 function key and the divide key (on the number pad) should give me the popup box. Problem is when i change the backslash (on question mark) to no longer do the popup box, the divide key on the number pad won't do anything either. I still want the divide key to do the pop up box.

I did research and found that the divide key on the keypad is "KP-Divide". But again, i can't make it do anything.

Is anything familiar with this problem. How can i make the divide key do something?

Thanks in advance.
