    an interesting issue has popped up in my Basic4ppc app.

    On the main form whish has 4 menu items so the SIP control is forced over to the right have side, when the device is awoken the SIP control is no longer there, it is not that the icon just isn't there (tapping where it should be does no good) but the control is gone. If I move to another screen and come back the control has returned.

    Is there anyway to check to see if it is there, so I can put it back if it is gone

    Showing and then hiding the SIP panel should work but it may have the undersirable effect of momentarily flashing up the keyboard.
    I've noticed this phenomena before with non-B4PPC apps.

    This also happend to me with various apps, especially, as you said, when the device is awoken...
    I think this has to do with the memory being freed after the awake...
    One would think it would free this memory, before going to sleep, but it seems to be done after teh awake...

    I fixed the issue by do a forced Form refresh after each MsgBox is cleared.

    as the SIP disappears when teh MsgBox is displayed for some reason on some devices it doe snot come back until the form is refreshed.
