Method for Efficient Field Selection When Inserting or Extracting Data from Host Screens.
Writing macros for legacy (green screen) applications often involves inserting and extracting data from host screens. For field based host environments, such as 3270 or 5250 systems, selecting the target field for this data manipulation is a common task. On any such screen, there may be dozens upon dozens of fields that need to be targeted for extraction or insertion. Because this can be such a repetitive task, there is a need for an efficient method for selecting the boundaries of a host screen field.
Host screen fields can be easily and rapidly selected by following a paradigm already existing in the text editor environment. Double-clicking the mouse on a host screen field can snap the boundaries of the selection region to that of the field which contained the mouse click. This roughly maps to how double-clicking on a word in a text file will highlight that word. Using this method doesn't require prior knowledge of the field's boundaries, as the boundaries are automatically selected. It is also faster than manually dragging a selection region around the field, as well as less error-prone.
