Hi All,

My requirement is to use two or more panels in the same screen in a CICS program.

e.g Suppose when the transaction starts I need to display a screen (with say 5 different panels) and based on the user input I have to display say panel 1 and 2 when i send the screen again.

By panel I mean the screen is made up of different sections which can be sent together or seperately or in any combination as and when required.

Is it possible to use multiple panels/maps in one CICS program?

Can you provide me some example on this. e.g. creating a screen with multiple panels and a sample code to handle such panels.

panel is an ISPF term; for BMS, the screen is 'decorated' with map(s).

Document SC33-0512-01, chapter 3.5.1.7.1 Floating maps, header & trailer maps should start you on your way.

The old CICS programmer's Desk Reference (second edition 1992) by Doug Lowe has a great example of this in Section 5, Model CICS programs. There you will find a structure chart, a mapset listing with 4 maps, the symbolic map listing, and the source listing for just such a program. I know it is an old book but many legacy programmers still have a battered copy. Check around. Mine gets borrowed a lot.

Hello,

this discussion is old, but still relevant because I am also confronted with this case. 4 Maps in a Mapset with the possibility of receive only one among the 4 Maps!

Is there a copy of the famous module written by Doug Lowe, in which he manipulates with precisely four mapsx in one mapsetx?

thank you in advance.

Hello, and thank you for those links.

I had not seen this on the site Murach. I'll study the examples that are given.
