Hi ,

The error messages sent from cics program to map screens are getting truncated.can someone help what the issue is ?

Code:
ERROR MESSAGE FROM PROGRAM is :
"PROGRAM NOT FOUND FOR XCTL INSTRUCTION - CALL PROGRAMMING   X 
PRESS CLEAR KEY BEFORE ENTERING NEXT TRANSID                                 X"

ERROR MESSAGE SHOWN ON SCREEN:
"PROGRAM NOT FOUND FOR XCTL INSTRUCTION - CALL PROGRAMMING   X  "


these messages should be displayed in 2 lines on the screen but the first line alone is displayed

pasting the piece of code from MF

Code:
037090 PGMIDERR-PARA.
037100     EXEC CICS HANDLE CONDITION PGMIDERR(PGMIDERR-ERR-PARA)
037110     END-EXEC.

Is your receiving field on the screen big enough? I am not 100% certain about this but if you want 2 lines then you need two fields and they both have to be populated.

Hi,

You can test the below code
Code:

01 SEND-TEXT   PIC X(79) VALUE SPACE.
...

MOVE ‘Your message ’ TO SEND-TEXT.
EXEC CICS  SEND TEXT FROM(SEND-TEXT) LENGTH(79)
         ERASE  ACCUM   
END-EXEC.
MOVE ‘Your message ’   TO SEND-TEXT.
EXEC CICS  SEND TEXT FROM (SEND-TEXT) LENGTH(79)
   ACCUM 
END-EXEC.
EXEC CICS  SEND  PAGE  END-EXEC.
EXEC  CICS  RETURN  END-EXEC.


Regards
Raghunathan

The SENT-TEXT is limited to 79 for a screen size of 24x80.

Code:
MOVE PGMIDERR-ERROR-MESSAGE(27:78)
TO WS-MESSAGE(1:80)
...
MOVE PGMIDERR-ERROR-MESSAGE(79:80)
TO WS-MESSAGE(81:80)


You have an overlap between 27 (start position) for length of 78 and 79 for a length of 80. I'd guess that will explain the MING X, but it is up to you to do the counting.

Hi,

Use cursor position without ERASE option to send a message to a particular location in the screen.

Hi,

I googled it and got what is meant by JUSLAST.

Code:

JUSLAST  specifies that the text data is to be positioned at the bottom of the page. The page is considered to be complete after the request has been processed. If the TRAILER option is specified, the trailer follows the data.


Thanks sel_ramji2009.

Hi,

I think that if you want to get your two error messages printed at the bottom of the screen, then you will need a BMS map with line 23 and line 24 coded in the Map.

Then you can move your error messages to the 2 lines and use a :
Code:

EXEC CICS SEND MAP
  MAPSET
  ERASE
  NOHANDLE
END-EXEC.


Also remember that a SEND TEXT command is talking to BMS and as such, BMS will require 1 position on the 80 byte row for the attribute byte.

HTH
