Hi,

Can anyone throw some light on the event handling in CICS or MANTIS. Events likes key press etc. I need to capture the cursor position at a particular field and when the key is pressed i need to show some pop up message.

thanking in advance.

Rahul.

You may use the following two variables in CICS to determine the key pressed and the cursor position:
EIBAID - To determine the key pressed. Values DFHPF1 to DFPF24, DFHPA1 to DFHPA3, DFHENTER

EIBCPOSN - To determine the cursor position when the Attention Identifier (AID) was pressed. It has values 0 to 1840 for a 24 x 80 screen.

Not sure about MANTIS.

Is it possible to capture keypress even as such, no matter what key is pressed (except PFxx and PAx keys and ENTER)???

Not in CICS. Only Attention Identifiers cause CICS to intiate a task.
