Make "IBM i Access Client Solutions" work like "IBM i Access for Windows"
With IBM choosing not to support IBM i Access for Windows beyond Windows 8.1, and many companies forcing upgrades to Windows 10, developers are forced to use IBM i Access Client Solutions. Therefore, IBM i Access Client Solutions should be 100% compatible with IBM i Access for Windows.
One flaw in IBM i Access Client Solutions is the behavior of the Alt key in display sessions. In IBM i Access for Windows, when the menu is hidden, pressing Alt brings up a pop-up screen allowing you to access the menu functions. In IBM i Access Client Solutions, pressing Alt apparently sends the focus to the unseen menu, which cannot actually be accessed at that point. Another problem in IBM i Access Client Solutions is that when using key combinations that include the Alt key (e.g. Alt->Right Arrow), after finishing the combination the focus has moved to the unseen menu, and you must press the Alt key again to return it to the display session so you can continue typing. This is extremely disruptive to the developer.
