New OS/2 Extended Edition EHLLAPI Function to Create Task List Entry

       Disclosed is an addition to the Emulation High Level
Language Application Programming Interface (EHLLAPI) product to allow
applications to create a Task List entry associated with a 3270/5250
emulation session running under OS/2 Extended Edition.

      This function is intended as an aid to application developers
writing EHLLAPI programs in a seamless SAA-type environment. A
typical scenario would be where an application would be written to
get a user to PROFS. When the workstation user selected the
application from the Start A Program List, the application would
start a 3270 session and send keystrokes to bring the emulation
session to the PROFS main menu.  The application would then make the
emulation session visible and use the new function to add a
descriptive name to the Task List (such as PROFS on VM1). This Task
List entry would be associated with the emulation session so that
whenever that entry was selected from the Task List, focus would be
given to the emulation session. The new function also provides the
capability to remove the switch list entry so that the emulation
session is no longer selectable from the Task List. In this example
when the user's requested that PROFS end, the emulation session could
be made invisible and the Task List entry deleted. From the
workstation user's viewpoint it would be impossible to tell that
PROFS was running on a host rather than on the work...
