We often get asked, either in our user forums or during training, if it’s possible to add a right click menu (also known as a ‘context menu’) to our Subfile grids. Yes, it is possible... I would even go so far as to say it’s pretty simple!

Hearing someone proclaim "The IBM i platform is on its last leg!" is something I had to get used to when I first started working at Profound Logic. I had experience working with Microsoft and Oracle, and knew those platforms weren't going away anytime soon. But IBM i?
After a year with the company and several of these "sky is falling" claims from so-called experts, however, it quickly became clear to me that the prognostication about the demise of the IBM i wasn't accurate at all.
Here's the short of it: The AS/400 is several decades old, as is the RPG programming language. Therefore, according to these experts, the platform can't possibly be modern enough to support the needs of modern businesses.
And in that context, they're right - The AS/400 can't. But the IBM i can!
