Calling a screen from within a class

I see that you cannot perform a 'CALL SCREEN XXXX' statement from within a method of a class since you cannot create a screen within a class. Is there any non-procedural way around this? I don't want to exit my oo-code by calling a function module that then calls a screen internally; and put all my code that should be in my class into this function module. I don't see any classes so far that I could call/instantiate to solve the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    You <b>have</b> to go through function modules. However, you use the FMs only for screen handling. Everything else should be done in your class. There's no need to put your class code into the FM.

    You can always pass the FM a reference to "me" when you call it, so that you can "return" to the class.

    You can't use screens in a global class, but you can call a screen with a local class. Not sure that helps you in your case, though
