Abstract

The disclosed icon represents the state of the CT/2 Runtime system when the CT/2 Runtime host connection is down. Visually, the icon is represented by an international prohibit sign between a terminal and a computer host.

Icon to Represent CT/2 Runtime Status Back Up Mode

       The disclosed icon represents the state of the CT/2
Runtime system when the CT/2 Runtime host connection is down.
Visually, the icon is represented by an international prohibit sign
between a terminal and a computer host.  CT/2 Runtime is a runtime
environment for business and banking transactions created by the CT/2
Definition environment.  The icon is used by the Presentation
Manager*-based human-computer interface to the CT/2 Runtime status
window.

      An icon for the CT/2 Runtime back-up mode supports the Status
area of the Runtime portion of the CT/2 package by providing a user
interface for the following capabilities:
o    The back-up mode status icon indicates the state of the system
when the host connection is down.  While in back-up mode, the data is
saved at the workstation instead of forwarding data in real-time to
the host.  The user does not need to take any explicit action when
the system goes down -- the system automatically reverts to back-up
mode when it senses a host failure.  However, it is important for
bank officers and supervisors to know if the system is in back-up
mode, hence the status icon.
