Map receive without wait

Map receive without wait

Map receive without wait

My CICS-Application should permanent send information to the screen (map send).
At any time the user should be able to press a button.
Then I should react to this pressing.
If the user doesn't press a button, the program should continue sending information to the screen.
How can I realize that.
A map receive command always means a wait. How can I notice the pressing of the button, without any waiting?

RE: Map receive without wait


If by pressing a button you mean one of Enter, Clear, Attn, PA1-PA3, then yes you can probably do something like what you want. But it's going to be really kludgey. If it's any other button, then you are out of luck.

1. Transaction start.
2. Cancel any outstanding IC requests for this terminal.
4. If MAPFAIL, send map with next data
5. Else process user input
6. Transaction starts itself on same terminal, in 5 seconds
7. Transaction ends.

But There has to be a better way to design your application. What is the requirement you are trying to meet?

Hi stevexff, it really works. Thank you so much! Pimm.

RE: Map receive without wait


No problem. I'm not that happy with the design, but at least it avoids long running transactions. If it does what you want, then that's cool...
