I have a CICS screen and 4 picklists (pop-up maps). When I send a pop-up map on top of the base map, the base map is not inactive. I want the base map to become inactive and pop-up to become active. Please let me know if I have to protect those fields through program or is there any specific option to do it. Also, I want an outline/border for the picklist/pop-up map. Should I design the border in the BMS map or is there any other alternative. Please help.

Well, you got me..... Can I assume that you are not refering to 3270 BMS mapping? I just don't recall the term "pop-up" in the BMS I know.....
Can you point me to some reference that I can gain some insight from?

TIA,

Bill

Yes, you must define your borders in the BMS map for each POPUP. Its just like any other MAP that you define and display in CICS. I wrote a
popup manager years ago, so the first thing is a receive the origianl map
that is displayed on the screen into a area in the commarea. then i change
all the attributes to protect and the color to white. then I send the original map back to the screen. Then I send the POPUP Map setting a flag indicating that a popup is active so that I know what action to take in the
main program. Then I reverse the order when the POPUP has been terminated by the PFK3 key.

Hi Mickey,

I presume what you are quoting here as "POPUP" map is not any different from an ordinary map defined with the DFHMDI command included under a DFHMDS mapset definition. Or, is it any different by the definition itself?.

If it is going to be the same, and you just want to make the user feel that the POPUP map is displayed like a PopUp message box in windows, You could send the POPUP map with the NOERASE option as soon as the user picks up an option from the main menu. This will display the POPUP map without erasing the main map. When he is finished with the POPUP map you could send the main map by erasing the screen.

I am not sure whether this is what you are looking for as I dont understand what you exactly mean by POPUP map.

Dinesh.

Yes, you are correct that a popup map is defined as any cics map would be coded. I always include my popup maps with in the same mapset as
the main map.

for your second question, I would like to see you results trying to display
a popup on top of the origianl map and sending the original map after the
popup was done. first you would have to rebuild the data for the origianl
map before display the map.

this message was in response to CJ10 in regards to his popup question. I have been doing popups in cics for many years and as my prior post states to make your popup work and retain the original information on the main screen before sending the popup.
