Hi All,
I want to add a small pop up map to my existing MAP in CICS ( like ISPF) . Requirement is User needs to enter some valid data in the popup screen.


Is it possible ? If yes could anyone guide me what needs to do in this case ?

Thanks,
batu

Add a small map to the mapset. make it smaller than a full screen and position it as needed. A border will help it stand out. Defining all bytes with spaces will prevent the original map from showing through. Send it without erase and then read it back and retrieve the needed info. Resend the original map with erase and go.

When you send it, being 3270, the user will need to hit a PF key to activate it...

It doesn't matter, since you will read to last (pop-up) map and any data in the original map will be lost as you redisplay that map.....
