Hi All,
Here is some intresting task assigned to me.In which I would require your help.
Is there any way in Cobol-Cics coding in which which we can code to display one map for few seconds(say 10 secs) and then display another map automatically.I mean to say can we specify any time parameter to restrict the display of any map for few seconds.

Please post your thinking on it ..

Hello,

Rather than having the first screen "magically go away" it is more common for the user to interact with the first screen and when the user is ready to proceed, the Enter Key or some PFKey is pressed and the second screen is thrown.

How would the code allow different intervals for different users who wanted the first screen "up" longer? Any time chosen would be too long for some and too quick for others.

I would do this via a START of the transaction with an interval of 10 seconds; set a flag in the commarea to recognize end of processing and when the transaction starts up again just send a clear screen and return to CICS.
