Problem(Abstract)

Certain types of DDS keywords are not supported by IBM Rational Host Access Transformation Services (HATS)

Resolving the problem

Certain types of graphical DDS keywords are not supported when HATS is transforming the 5250 data stream:

  • Programmable Mouse Buttons (DDS keyword MOUBTN)
  • DBCS Grid Lines (DDS keywords GRDATR, GRDBOX, GRDLIN, GRDRCD)
  • Advanced field operations, including the following DDS features:
    1. Continued-field
    2. Edit-mask entry
    3. Cursor-progression entry
    4. Pointer-device selectable
    5. Word-wrap
    6. Cursor movement restrictions
    7. Cursor-sensitive scrolling
    8. Mandatory fill using the CHECK(MF) or CHGINPDFT(MF) keywords.
  • Ghost controls, or nonstandard usage of DDS keywords, coded in the DDS map prior to the 5250 datastream control command SOH (Start Of Header)
  • Selection Field accelerator keys:
    1. Menu accelerators
    2. Numeric selection
    3. Mnemonics
    In addition, the following "Edit" DDS keyword is not supported:
