LOOP on cursor position....

LOOP on cursor position....

LOOP on cursor position....

generally i use the code:

Do Until oScreen.WaitForCursor(row, col)

to check cursor position...

but if the cursor dont change position, the until run to the infinity loop, or not?

if yes, instead to use the Until statement is possible to use a for next similar:

for i=0 to 35000
'check psotion of cursor 4,5
next i

if i>35000 then
msgbox("Attention Extra locked,ecc...")
end if

code for this exception, please.

Sorry for my bad English.

RE: LOOP on cursor position....


You would user WaitForCursor after issuing a command to the mainframe from your terminal emulator on your PC, since the mainframe processes asynchronously from your PC. Realize that each screen can have different rest coordinates. So prior to issuing a mainframe command, 1) move the cursor away from the rest coordinates, 2) SendKeys to the mainframe and then 3) start your WaitForCursor loop at the rest coordinates.

You may also want to start a timer before looping if you want to arbitrarily pick a duration to abort the wait AND subsequent processing after perhaps 10 seconds.
