Hello and welcome to the forum,

Please re-post your screen info using copy/paste and the "Code" tag. "Screenshots" are far less useful.

Once the replacement info has been posted, the screen shots will be deleted (if the replacements aren't posted by then, the screenshots will be deleted tomorrow).

While you can fill the field with underscores for the user to see, i'm not sure the hardware (3270) will preserve them when the fields are modified by a user.

Hi

You need to give EXTATT=YES on the Mapset level (DFHMSD) and use HILIGHT=UNDERLINE on each fields.

Thnx for the reply.But it doesnt serve the purpose.Wat u r tryin 2 tell me is 'how 2 use underline feature?'.......my problem is ' how to sustain underlines ?'


say initially map seems as:

Code:
Name   :_________
Address:__________

wen i try 2 put in spaces or delete from the Address field, the name field changes to:

Code:
Name   :     ____  or   Name   :___   or   Name   :

i.e; the underline behaves abnormally.Is there a way 2 correct this ?

Note: This problem persists in tso screens also.

You are makikng an assumption that something is not working as intended.

As i mentioned earlier, i believe you are trying to force the terminal (3270) to function other than it is designed.

Note that your reply has been "Code"ed for readability. In the future you need to do as you post/reply. Thanks to the Preview function, practicing with the Code tag is not difficult.

I think you are confusing the underscore character with the underline attribute.

If the above (EXTATT=YES on the Mapset level (DFHMSD) and use HILIGHT=UNDERLINE) can be used in the map, you can sustain the underlines. External attributes such as Color, Underline are specific to the terminals what you are using. Not all the terminals will be supporting Extended attributes.

Please refer the below link

you need to determine if the underlines are coming from application program or CICS map.

If from program, you don't want to be changing the map.
