There is no way to suppress the command line shown in the window opened by
DISPLAY or %DISPLAY.
If you have SAS/FSP, you can use FSEDIT to create an input screen, or you
can use FSVIEW to define formulas that validate input.
If you have SAS/AF you can build a frame for data input.
If you have Base ;), you might use viewtable to create a new table: VT;NEW
You could write an app in another language (vb, vc, java, tcl, perl, etc...)
that does the 'window'.
You would have to
- run the app using SYSTEM() and pass info back and forth using a file, or
- run the app using a filename pipe and pass info back and forth using
std-in (or command line args) and reading std-out.
You could write a reusable program in another language that parses a WINDOW
or %WINDOW statement :)
