EDIT FIELD in a popup window

Mar 29, 2010
I have just passed from v.12 to v.18. And I have noticed a new "tab" in a popup window.
I have attached a screenshot where this field is marked as yellow.

This new field changes the behavior of my (old) menu. Instead of typing 0 (zero) and exit I have to type <ESC>.
And some other minor changes..

Please, let me know if it is any possibility to avoid the appearance of that field.

Thank you,

I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to here -- can you post a batch file fragment so we can see what popup window you're referring to? (TCMD and TCC have a lot of them.)

Several years ago we added a search window to some of the popups, which continuously updates the contents of the window based on the search string -- is that what you're using?

I am sorry. The pop-up window is from @SELECT.

And the issue was due to some spaces before each row in the menu. Eliminating them solved the problem - one tap for a 0 in the window and the next tap the exit.
Thank you.
