Position of field on screen

Hi Andy,

I do so in many situations as well where I hide/show either an
overlapping subwindow or field at the location needed but because its
inside the window it is constrained by the size of the window, and there
are often ugly redraw issues involved once subwindows start overlapping
each other.

This is the implementation I'm trying to replace by opening up a popup
window in the correct location but that requires knowing screen coordinates.
