Transient screens

A transient screen is a screen that can occur at any point in the macro, that occurs unpredictably, and that always needs to be cleared. An example of a transient screen is an error screen that appears in response to invalid input.

The Macro object does not mark any macro screen as a transient screen during macro recording. However, subsequently you can mark any macro screen as a transient screen.

When macro playback begins, the macro runtime searches the macro, finds each macro screen that is marked as a transient screen, and adds the name of each transient macro screen to the list of valid next screens. These names remain on the list for the duration of the macro playback.
