Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All 5250 emulation users configured with     *
    *                 Mouse Button keyword (MOUBTN)                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: In Personal Communications 5250 display *
    *                      session, existing Programmable Mouse    *
    *                      Buttons (PMB) configuration is not      *
    *                      cleared when a new PMB configuration    *
    *                      is received.                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    5250 emulator display session has a PMB structured field
    where left mouse event AID key is mapped to a key, for
    example "F4". When a new PMB structured field without left
    mouse event AID is received, the existing PMB structured
    field is not cleared. This may result in incorrect behavior
    on the new emulator screen.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PCSLT52.DLL and PCSPREF.DLL have been changed to add a new
    keyword ClearPMB to the 5250 section of the WS profile. When
    this keyword is set to Y, the existing PMB structured field
    will be cleared when a new PMB structured field is received.
    By default, the keyword is set to N.
    
    To add the new keyword, use a ASCII editor to open the WS
    profile:
    
    [5250]
    ClearPMB=Y
    
    Fix is scheduled for PCOM 6.0.9 Refresh Pack
