Abstract

This method allows a processor performing emulation of display devices to mask hardware restrictions in the number of input fields each device is capable of displaying on any given screen. The screen of the device with the less capability is logically partitioned by modifying the field definition. The user is presented with all the input fields sent by the host, but only a proper subset of fields is active at any given time, as set forth in the flow diagram.
