Hello everyone,

I have an online screen for user entry. It has many fields. Is there a way to throw a small screen to describe what this field is about and what values it should contain? Is it possible using CICS alone ? (I am not sure if this is being done using rexx panels or not).

Here is an example screen print (in the attachment) of what I am talking about. Any pointers would be of great help. Please show me a direction.

Regards,
Kranthi

Read up on defining a HELP section in a panel.

Why do you want to throw a screen - you could break it. You really mean
'display' and rexx does not have panels and you should know by k=now not to post screen-shots but to cut and paste using code tags.

In CICS you can show any type of map on top of other maps, but you must be aware that it involves some logic in you program.
You will have to do some reading about BMS to understand.
If you have questions after this reading, and some testing, we will be happy to answere your questions.
