Key pad in Cobol screen section.

Key pad in Cobol screen section.

Key pad in Cobol screen section.

I am a garbageman trying to be a cobol programmer that's learning the Screen section and am stumped on one thing.... I am programming this thing to work with a touch screen in which you key in numbers from 1 to 10 and each number displays on an entry-field.  Is there a key pad function that is built in like Push-button, entry field, frame, radio-button etc....  Or do I have to create the key-pad manually using push-buttons?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Also do you know of anywhere where there is an abundance of example code for the screen section.  Thanks.
Mr. Trash..........

RE: Key pad in Cobol screen section.

Which version/release of which compiler are you using?

Is this going to run on Windows, Unix, Linux or something else?
