terminfo/termcap problem

terminfo/termcap problem

terminfo/termcap problem

I have recently converted a server running HP-UX 11i v2 with IDS 10 to HP-UX 11i v3 with IDS 11.5.
When I run a 4gl program that has a form within a window the window border is displayed incorrectly i.e.
upper left = 2
lower left = 1
upper right = 3
lower right = 5
horizontal = z
vertical = 6
The problem occurs with termcap and terminfo. It appears that the terminal will no longer recognize the commands to enter graphics mode.
The terminal type is wy50 (wyse50).
Has anyone experienced this issue and/or have any ideas for a solution?
Thank you.

RE: terminfo/termcap problem

any ideas for a solution
Check the values of the INFORMIXTERM, TERMCAP and TERMINFO variables.
Check that the wy50 entry of the the relevant termcap file contains the following:
