BMS OUTLINE feature is not working !

BMS OUTLINE feature is not working !

BMS OUTLINE feature is not working !

Hi ,

The idea is while displaying a map , some fields should
be outlined under it.(ie a box containing only outline under the fields)

Definitions seem to be OK on our side but when sending the map , nothing appears .We are using 3270 terminals  type 2.

Has anybody a clue of what to do ?

Does it work on mainframe ? if not why to specify
this stupid option in BMS ?

RE: BMS OUTLINE feature is not working !

Some BMS attributes (for example COLOR or OUTLINE) make use of the screen manipulation facilities (extended curses) provided by the underlying operating system the IBM CICS Client is running on. If the extended curses facility package does not support a particular attribute, it will be ignored.

I believe the underline options etc only work under the SDA interface. I also believe the SDA interface isn't available on the mainframe, it is only available on OPEN systems.

I think the reason it is specified it that there is much more than the mainframe uses BMS in the CICS world, os if your client was on NT or UNIX it would work.
