TOPVIEW VERSION 1.1
TOPVIEW VERSION 1.10 ANNOUNCED
TOPVIEW PROGRAMMER'S TOOLKIT VERSION 1.10 ANNOUNCED
The IBM Personal Computer TopView Version 1.10 program provides a
productivity environment for the IBM Personal Computer user.
TopView provides the function and architecture for running
multiple, diverse applications concurrently; viewing multiple
applications on the display device; and exchanging compatible
data between applications. Applications may consist of
independently executing programs or may be defined as a program
group and executed. In addition, DOS batch files are supported.
The user can also execute a selected group of DOS commands
against individual or groups of files by selecting the DOS
Services option. The more experienced user may wish to directly
interact with DOS for a selected group of DOS commands through
the DOS command processor. Either or both methods of executing
DOS commands can be used concurrently with the execution of user
A program swapping option allows the user to more effectively
utilize the installed hardware environment of a Personal
Computer. When selected, TopView automatically swaps out
programs to a fixed disk or a RAM memory based virtual disk when
the aggregate memory requirements of DOS, TopView and the user's
applications exceed installed addressable RAM memory.
Programs written using Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10,
an implementation of the Virtual Device Interface (VDI), are
supported under TopView Version 1.10. Programs that use Graphics
Development Toolkit Version 1.10 device drivers for graphics are
treated like other programs using graphics under TopView.
TopView Version 1.10 will run on redirector stations using the
IBM PC Local Area Network Program Version 1.10. IBM PC Local Area
Network Program Version 1.10 includes the IBM PC Network-Message
Manager for TopView program that runs under TopView Version 1.10
and allows the TopView Version 1.10 user to receive messages.
Devices redirected by the IBM PC Local Area Network Program
Version 1.10 can be used by all programs running with TopView
Version 1.10. Additionally, programs running under TopView
Version 1.10 can privately redirect network devices for exclusive
Using TopView Version 1.10 and the IBM PC 3270 Emulation Program
Version 2.00 together allows the user to run multiple
applications concurrently and to communicate with a host system
at the same time. All four of the IBM PC 3270 Emulation Program
Version 2.00 configurations are supported under TopView Version
1.10. The 3270 emulated display user goes through the PC Network
adapter to a gateway on another PC to communicate with the host
system. The 3270 emulated control unit and display user
communicates through an SDLC adapter card or 3278/3279 adapter
card (DTF connection) via a host attached 3274 to the host. The
gateway with network station configuration has an SDLC adapter
card and an IBM PC LAN adapter. A stand alone configuration also
allows communication from a non-network IBM Personal Computer.
The TopView Programmer's ToolKit Version 1.10 provides a powerful
set of tools to assist programmers in designing and developing
application programs that utilize TopView's facilities. The
Programmer's ToolKit allows the application developer to take
advantage of the facilities of TopView by providing utilities and
system-related information to create TopView-compatible
applications that use TopView's multitasking, windowing, and
data-transfer features. All development can be done on an IBM
Personal Computer, IBM Personal Computer XT, IBM Portable
Personal Computer or IBM Personal Computer AT.
With the TopView Programmer's ToolKit Version 1.10, you can use
the Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 (VDI) to create
graphics programs which are independent of the graphics hardware
devices available on the target system.

TOPVIEW VERSION 1.10
TopView provides the operating environment for the IBM Personal
Computer that a user needs to improve productivity by:
o Achieving compatibility with PC Local Area Network Version
1.10 on redirector stations, allowing the user to access
devices, and data residing on the PC Local Area Network
Version 1.10 server node.
o Providing flexibility in the use of displays and printers by
being compatible with programs written using the Graphics
Development Toolkit Version 1.10 (VDI) to take advantage of a
subset of the Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10
o Providing user control of the work flow on the IBM Personal
Computer so that interruptions are easier to handle.
o Optimizing use of system resources by swapping programs to
disk when maximum configured system memory is exceeded.
o Allowing grouping of files on which the user wishes to
perform DOS Services commands.
o Automatically keeping track of DOS Services commands entered
in the 'Other' menu item field and displaying them on a
TopView is friendly and easy to use. Easy access to its, many
varied functions is gained by selection of a TopView function
from pop-up menus. The main TopView menu can be displayed with
one keystroke or simultaneous button press on a two button mouse.
Pop-up menus allow applications to use the full-display screen
area, since they appear only when requested by the user and
disappear after the desired function is selected. A tutorial
program provided helps familiarize the user with TopView's major
functions. TopView also provides HELP support for most TopView
Pointing Devices: TopView supports the use of pointing devices
that control the pointer on the screen. A typical pointing
device is a mouse or the keyboard. This TopView facility greatly
enhances the movement of the selection pointer on TopView menus
and allows the user additional flexibility in moving the pointer
around the display screen. The pointer is used to point to an
option on a TopView menu (for example, a list of functions that
can be selected). A mouse pointing device is recommended but not
Text Application/Windows: TopView provides the facilities for
text oriented applications to have one or more windows. An
application written for TopView can determine the initial
placement of the window on the screen or reorder the window
placement. Existing applications normally use one window that
covers the entire screen (25 rows by 80 columns). TopView maps
the windows of applications onto the physical screen, thereby
providing the facilities for displaying multiple windows on the
screen at one time. The windows of all applications that are
executing concurrently are updated as directed by the
applications, even when the applications are executing in the
background. The windows of applications that write directly to
the video buffer cannot be windowed (that is, sized, moved, or
scrolled) by TopView. These windows occupy the full screen and
are updated only when the associated applications are running in
A user can size, move, and scroll application windows only if
the application is text oriented and does not write directly to
the video buffer. A window may be defined as the space (rows and
columns) the application uses on the display device. A window
that occupies less than the full screen can be moved to any
convenient location on the display. This function becomes
important when files from several different applications must be
compared on the same physical display screen. It allows the
foreground application to be displayed along with one or more
background applications on the same display screen.
Sizing, placement, and scrolling of the various application
windows on the physical display screen is at the user's
discretion. Scrolling allows a user to view a window's data by
moving the data (to the left, right, up or down) within a window
that has been reduced in size. Applications may provide an
additional level of scrolling to display other data (for example,
next page, next record, and so on).
Cut/Copy/Paste: Using a filter program and a filter table,
TopView also permits the user to invoke data transfer within an
application or between applications. It provides applications
with the facilities for performing data movement operations where
they are applicable. The copy function copies a block of text
that has been marked by the user for use as input for a paste
operation. The copy function is available for all applications
in text mode. The cut function is the same as the copy function
except that the marked text block is deleted from the window (and
the application) by the application. The paste function allows
the data to be inserted at the location marked by the user. The
cut-and-paste functions are not available for all applications,
since all applications do not support block delete and/or block
insert functions. The user performs the cut, copy, and paste
operations by using the TopView pop-up menus.
Graphics Applications: TopView supports graphics applications by
giving them control of the full screen when the graphics
application is in the foreground. Both medium-resolution color
(320 x 200 four-color pixels) and high-resolution black and white
(640 x 200 two-color pixels) video modes can be used for graphics
applications (the EGA adapter is only supported in the CGA
compatibility mode). Since most graphics applications write
directly into display adapter memory, graphics applications can
run only in the foreground with a full-screen window. Several
graphics applications can be started at the same time under
TopView, but they are not allowed to run as background tasks.
Windowing functions are not supported for graphics applications.
Multitasking/Swapping: In the TopView environment, the user can
manage as many applications as will fit in memory. The user may
choose as a TopView Setup option to have application programs
swapped to disk storage when the aggregate DOS, TopView and
application program memory requirements exceed the user's
installed system memory. The applications may be swapped in and
out of fixed disk storage or to a RAM memory based virtual disk.
The number of applications that can be swapped is dependent upon
the amount of available free disk storage and remaining TopView
Switching between applications is accomplished through menu
selections or cycling from one application to another through
simple keyboard or mouse button presses. The user's applications
may all be different, or the user may select multiple copies of
some applications. TopView not only allows switching from
application to application, but also has the ability to run
multiple applications concurrently by allotting small amounts of
time to the applications that are eligible for concurrent
execution. One application will be interactive in the foreground
(receives all user input), while other applications that do not
write directly to the video buffer (and are otherwise
'well-behaved') may be executing in the background. Even
applications that are not well-behaved can be loaded and run
under TopView at the same time. These applications will be
suspended while they are not the foreground application, however,
and users of these applications cannot take advantage of the
TopView windowing functions.
Batch applications may be added to the program menu. Batch
applications may then be started as an application program. The
batch partition may be tailored to the application currently
executing in it.
DOS Services: TopView allows the user to use, by selecting the
DOS Services menu item, most DOS functions while working with
active applications. The applications and TopView need not be
ended before invoking the DOS Services function. Most popular
functions, such as PRINT, RENAME, TYPE, ERASE, and COPY are
supported. A complete list of supported commands is provided in
the TopView User's Guide. The user has the option of specifying,
when DOS Services is started, the initial directory and files to
be displayed. When the user enters commands from the 'Other'
option from the DOS Services menu, they will be saved and
retrieved and displayed in the 'Other' window when this option is
selected in future sessions. The user has the ability to select
multiple files from the directory window to be processed with the
DOS Services options (Copy, Print etc.).
For the more experienced user who wishes to enter a selected set
of DOS commands from the command prompt, TopView will allow the
user to start COMMAND.COM, the DOS command processor, as an
application task. The user may switch to the command processor
as with any other application and, with certain restrictions, be
able to issue DOS commands with such functions as Input/Output
redirection and piping to filters.
IBM PC Local Area Network: The TopView user from a redirector
station can send and receive messages from other Local Area
Network stations and request the use of additional devices,
providing he is running the IBM PC Local Area Network-Message
Manager Program for TopView. (NOTE: TopView may only share
additional devices that are on other IBM PC Local Area Network
stations that are set up as servers. This means that TopView
cannot run on the sharing station.) From the redirector station,
the user may access data files at other node locations that
reside on the network server station. TopView also allows the
user to run programs installed on a server station. (Programs
that are copy protected typically require the user to have a copy
protected diskette in the diskette drive of the network station
executing the program unless the program copy protection scheme
has been specifically designed to execute in a network
environment. The user may find this an impractical environment
offering no advantage to the user over having that particular
program installed on the IBM Personal Computer Local Area Network
redirector station that will be using it. In most cases the
license agreements for copy protected programs do not allow such
a program to be used on more than one computer at a time. It is
recommended that the user install all copy protected programs on
the redirector stations that will be executing them. This means
that copy protected programs will not be shared over the IBM PC
Local Area Network.)
IBM PC 3270 Emulation: Using TopView Version 1.10 and the IBM PC
3270 Emulation Program Version 2.00 together allows the user to
run multiple applications concurrently and to communicate with a
host system at the same time. All four of the IBM PC 3270
Emulation Program Version 2.00 configurations are supported under
TopView Version 1.10. The 3270 emulated display user goes through
the PC Network adapter to a gateway on another PC to communicate
with the host system. The 3270 emulated control unit and display
user communicates through an SDLC adapter card or 3278/3279
adapter card (DTF connection) via a host attached 3274 to the
host. The gateway with network station configuration has an SDLC
adapter card and an IBM PC LAN adapter. A stand alone
configuration also allows communication from a non-network IBM
Personal Computer. TopView Version 1.10 provides support for
running multiple tasks concurrently and therefore, the 3270
Alternate Tasks function may not be used in this environment. The
IBM PC 3270 Emulation Program Version 2.00 must remain resident
in memory to process communications I/O and therefore may not be
TopView supports the IBM PC 640x200 two-color high resolution
graphics and IBM PC 320x200 four-color medium resolution
graphics, a selected set of printer device drivers and the
TopView Logical Mouse device drivers that are part of the
Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 (VDI). Programs written
using Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 (VDI) allow
flexibility in the user's selection of displays and printers.
Programs written using the Graphics Development Toolkit Version
1.10 routines for graphics are treated like other programs using
graphics under TopView. Programs using Graphics Development
Toolkit Version 1.10 device drivers use the full screen and run
in the foreground when they are in graphics mode. Programs
written using the Graphics Development ToolKit Version 1.10
TopView Logical Mouse device driver can use the TopView supported
mouse as a pointing device.
TOPVIEW PROGRAMMER'S TOOLKIT VERSION 1.10
The TopView Programmer's ToolKit provides a powerful set of tools
to assist programmers in designing and developing application
programs that utilize TopView's facilities. The Programmer's
ToolKit allows the application developer to take advantage of the
facilities of TopView by providing utilities and system-related
information to create TopView-compatible applications that use
TopView's multitasking, windowing, and data-transfer features.
All development can be done on an IBM Personal Computer, IBM
Personal Computer XT, IBM Portable Personal Computer or IBM
Personal Computer AT.
Language Interface: TopView Programmer's ToolKit provides the
programmer with language interface routines to access TopView
facilities through interrupts and associated subcodes. The
interrupt provides the contact to TopView, and the subcode
defines the request for some specific action. TopView receives
the request and dispatches the action requested. Several macros
are also supplied to complement the TopView language link.
Language interfaces are provided for the IBM Personal Computer
Macro Assembler and the IBM Personal Computer Pascal Compiler.
The Pascal interface is provided as an example to developers who
may wish to write an interface to other languages.
The TopView Programmer's ToolKit facilities allow applications to
create and manipulate windows, to route TopView messages to other
applications in the system, support requests for multitasking
functions, start a program or a task from within another program,
test for the presence of a pointing device and its status, to
reprioritize window viewing sequences and to scroll screen text
The TopView Programmer's ToolKit may be used in conjunction with
the Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 (VDI) to develop
programs which are independent of the graphics and printer
hardware devices available upon the target system. Graphics
Development Toolkit Version 1.10 accepts requests from the
calling program and converts these requests into system service
calls (software interrupts to BIOS, DOS and/or Graphics
Development Toolkit Version 1.10 device dependent routines) which
implement the various graphics functions on behalf of the
Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 requesting application.
TopView intercepts the software interrupts initiated by the
Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 requests. The Graphics
Development Toolkit Version 1.10 applications programs are
treated the same as other graphics programs under TopView. The
Graphics Development Toolkit Version 1.10 TopView Logical Mouse
device driver allows the program to use the TopView supported
mouse within the program.
Window Design Aid: The Window Design Aid is an interactive tool
that can be used to design and store text-mode windows for later
use by an application running in the TopView environment. This
tool, which runs as an application under TopView, can be used to
develop HELP menus, forms, error messages, and screens for an
application. It can be used to define the attributes of all
fields, text, window background, and so on, for windows created
using the Window Design Aid. The design aid uses an internal
cut-and-paste feature to allow easy duplication of fields and
text when creating windows. Duplicated data can be easily placed
anywhere on the window being developed. A draw feature allows
easy positioning of lines and boxes. The Window Design Aid also
allows a user to quickly set attributes for windows, sections of
windows, and text. The created windows are stored in files and
may be recalled by the application program as needed. If changes
are required on the created window, the design aid can be used to
quickly retrieve the created window and to reset the appropriate
attributes. This action remains independent of the application
program and greatly reduces dependencies on changing application
Application Development: TopView requires information about the
unique operating characteristics of an application prior to
running that application. This information is made available
through a file called the program information file. The
developer is told how to include this information in the build
process for the application so that it is available to TopView
when the application is installed. Program information files for
several existing IBM Personal Computer software programs that are
compatible with TopView will be provided with TopView. The
developer is also given information on how to create filter
tables that are used by existing applications to provide cut and
paste capabilities for the application by defining equivalent
keystrokes for application commands that cause the application to
insert (paste) or delete (cut) a marked block of text. When the
appropriate TopView command (cut or paste) is entered, these
keystrokes are passed to the application just as if the user had
Guidelines are provided to help developers create applications
compatible with TopView. In addition, guidelines are provided to
write device drivers for pointing devices other than those
currently supported by TopView.
SPECIFIED OPERATING ENVIRONMENT
An IBM Personal Computer, IBM Personal Computer XT, IBM Portable
Personal Computer, or IBM Personal Computer AT requires a minimum
of 320KB of memory. Since the amount of memory required will
vary according to the size and number of applications, 512KB to
640 KB of memory is recommended.
NOTE: Support for the IBM 3270 Personal Computer or IBM 3270
Personal Computer AT is not provided in TopView Version 1.10 or
TopView Programmer's ToolKit Version 1.10.
In addition, two dual-sided diskette drives or one dual-sided
diskette drive and one fixed-disk drive, the IBM Color Display,
or equivalent, with the IBM Color/Graphics Monitor Adapter, or
the IBM Monochrome Display and the IBM Monochrome Display and
Printer Adapter are required.
