Reply with quote

Hi

I have a program that sends a text that fits in a screen using the Standard EXEC CICS SEND TEXT command.

I need to make a change to send a text that -- do not fit -- in a single screen i.e. text of length greater than 1920.

I read somewhere that it is possible to send text of length that is greater than one full screen using SEND TEXT. But not sure on how to do this!

Any suggestion, greatly appreciated?

Regards,
Lakshman

Use the ACCUM and PAGING options of the SEND TEXT command. You may also want to use the HEADER and TRAILER options as well, depending on what your needs are. Go to the manuals page and look thru the CICS manual for details.

The answer is right from the technical point of view,
but it would be better to check with the project leader
about standards on paging/scrolling

builtin CICS commands for scrolling are not very friendly
often users lose pages ..

You are warned :-)

Hey Enrico, you are quite correct that this form of paging is quite cumbersome and unpredictable, however, reading his post lead me to believe that this sort of paging is already place at his shop.

I did not find any hint about that,

reminding posters about organizational issues is something that,
in my philosophy of answering, should always be done,
furthermore it does not hurt :-)

send with accum has always been a pain, most shy away from it and for
good reason, it can cause grief with page retrieval.

why not build your pages in temporary storage and then
write you own logic to pseudo-code logic to present the data 1920 bytes at a time to the terminal, based on a PF key. << thats the norm<<


why are you not using BMS ?
