Discussion

The .DISPLAY_AREA command defines the dimensions and placement of the display area for a general window (.WINDOW) or input window (.INPUT). The display area defines the view into a window and defaults to the entire window.

The view is movable if the display area is smaller than the size of the window. If the window is an input window, the input processing system adjusts the location if necessary to include the entire input field being processed.

Row 1, column 1 is the upper‑left corner.
