Subject: Suppressing background windows in Display Manger
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed
I have an application that uses SAS macro language, macro language
windows, data steps, and PMenu to generate a report.
This application requires that it is run through the Display Manager,
which is invoked from the Command line via an AUTOEXEC. (mainframe SAS v8.2)
In order to access a PMENU window, I need to type an option number in
the main menu.
The problem is when I make a selection, the LOG , OUTPUT, and PGM
windows are flashing on the screen.
I took the following steps :
I compiled my macros,
Added lines: dm 'log ; clear; icon' ;
dm 'PGM ; clear; icon' ;
in order to minimize those windows, but I still see the LOG AND PGM
windows on the screen for a moment before the PMENU Window is displayed.
Is there any way to suppress the PGM and LOG windows completely, so none
of the background windows are seen by the users.
I will appreciate very much all your suggestions.
