Combining contiguous output data

For this example, contiguous output data is defined as data all of which appears within one rectangular region on a host screen and appears at the same location on subsequent consecutive screens. An example of this would be a list of output data that does not all fit on one screen. In this example, using a terminal emulator a user must navigate forward through consecutive screens to view all of the data. No matter what screen the user views, the data appears within the same location on the display screen.

For this type of data, you can use a ZIETrans screen combination to gather the whole multi-screen block of contiguous data into a single scrollable GUI for the user. A screen combination is one type of ZIETrans screen event. For more information about screen events and creating and editing screen combinations see Working with screen events.
