Hello,

I am trying to blink one variable in the Map. I added DFHBMSCA in my program and moved DFHBLINK to variableH field. But its not blinking after displaying the map.

Please let me know that is anything else we have to do to blink the variable in map.

Regards,
Bipin Peter

You will have to enable the terminal that displays the map to allow it to use blinking characters. Many have this disabled a s blinking is regarded as very unfriendly.

There is no command; the terminal has to be defined to use extended attributes. Contact your site support group for assistance as making this change is not something most sites will allow an applications programmer to do.

You also need to have DSATTS and/or MAPATTS (or EXTATT) operands in your map definition.

it wouldn't work until you complete the right set up.

try:
Code:
CECI INQ TERM(xxxx)

Page down until you find the HIlightst option.
413 (HILIGHT) means the terminal has extended highlighting.
414 (NOHILIGHT) means the terminal does not have extended highlighting.

It will give you the status of ONE terminal, you will have to check more and extrapolate.
