'CURSOR' Unchanged
« on: April 02, 2019, 06:42:42 PM »
In RedHat 7 PvxPlus Windx, is there any way to change the cursor?
None of the commands seem to work, always have a block cursor.

Have you set parameter IM ?  If you did, disable it: SET_PARAM 'IM'=0 .

'IM' seems to make no difference but thank you for the attempt.

Are you seeing this issue when running a text mode or graphical application?
(i.e. Is the input within a Graphical element or from a standard INPUT directive)

Also, if text mode what terminal type are you using and did the system recognize that you are using WindX?
i.e. is the command mode prompt -> or -}

I am using Windx character mode, telnet connection, TERM=ansi.  No cursor controls seem to work.

At the command mode prompt, when the system is waiting for you to type a command, does pressing the INSERT key toggle between the solid block cursor and the thin vertical line cursor?

The cursor is a block no matter what in console mode.

Also, Windx is in true client-server mode -}
