 INPUT Field smaller than INPUT var

Anyone have a good idea regarding input of a variable
in a field that is NOT as large as the variable?

ie.
     DEFINE  x_val  CHAR( 30 )

     INPUT x_val FROM sr_rec.x_val   -- sr_rec.x_val < 30 CHAR

Informix tech-support says that this is not supported, but I do
need this capability.  Although this feature is in many
applications (non Informix) it seems like this SHOULD be included.

I've seen this done where the field acts as a "scrolling" field..
When the user gets to the end of the field, the letters shift left
and continue input.. It was a C function that did not have source.

Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!?!?!

I'm a pretty good C programmer but would like to know if anyone
else has already found all the pit-falls required!?!?!

        This problem ("scrolling fields") and many others concerned FORM-I/O
are solved by the "Advanced Form Package for the INFORMIX-4GL" (AFP-4GL).

Also AFP-4GL provides :

"Large" (greater than screen) forms support, Multistring fields,
Composite fields, Hidden! fields, In-field data disposition, Input-Time field
attributes, Dynamic NOENTRY attributes, Control-Codes Filters, Initial
Search-Criteri setting for CONSTRUCT statement, In-field data formatting,
Maskable character fields formats, Video attributes for COMMENTS,
Keyboard Key-Names(for help messages) setting, National language set up, etc.

'"Advanced Form Package for the INFORMIX-4GL" (AFP-4GL).' sounds
interesting.  How does one go about finding a copy?
