I have a screen that, after a successful transaction, would return a red font where an error is found on the screen. is it possible to detect the red font? the error can be anywhere on the screen. thanks


RE: Font Color


How is an error defined in order for the red font to occur?

RE: Font Color

Just a shot in the dark, but I recall, back in the COBOL support days, that the byte just before a field on the screen has a value. Why don't you do a test and observe what's actually there and under what circumstances?

RE: Font Color

thanks Skip,
when the system encounters certain error conditions, the system would report an error message and wherever the error is, the font would be in red.

i'll give your suggestion a try and report back soon.
