Abstract

Operator interactive display systems generally involve the use of a cursor. Cursor motion right/left is normally done one character position at a time. In the display of record frames, the area between the end of one field and the beginning of the next, including the vertical bar separating the fields, is considered a non-keyable area.

Cursor Motion Right Left in Record Frames

Operator interactive display systems generally involve the use of a cursor. Cursor motion right/left is normally done one character position at a time. In the display of record frames, the area between the end of one field and the beginning of the next, including the vertical bar separating the fields, is considered a non- keyable area.

In order to provide the most efficient use of cursor motion in the display of record frames, the cursor motion right/left is made to skip over the non-keyable area. By doing this, it is easier to move to the next or preceding field and at the same time avoid placing the cursor in a non-keyable area.
