Question/Problem Description
Error (4028) developing is generated by an application under development. For example:

**FILL-IN WideField will not fit in FRAME in PROGRAM . (4028)
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Procedure uses only the default frame.
Error MessageError: **<widget name> will not fit in FRAME <frame name> in PROGRAM . (4028)
Defect/Enhancement Number
The application is attempting to place a widget which is wider that the width of the default FRAME.
Possible solutions to this problem include:

1. Decrease the width of the widget.

2. Increase the width of the frame. If the default fame is in use:

    a. Define an additional, wider frame. For example:

        DEFINE FRAME a WITH SIZE 135 BY 24.

    b. Place the widget in the  the newly defined frame instead of the default frame. For example:

        DISPLAY WideField WITH FRAME a.

3. Substitute another widget, for example an EDITOR (in which text can wrap around multiple lines) instead of a FILL-IN (which can only display text in a single line).
