Modifying Subfile Headings

One other feature that the HTMLAPI provides dynamically alters subfile headings. Typically it can be used in a generic fashion for any 5250 screen.

If code like this is added to the standard SHARED layout function ApplyStandardLayout:

 

      /* Adjust the subfile headings */

 

      HTMLAPI.adjustSubFileHeadings("Arial","8pt");

 

Then the resulting 5250 screen now looks like this:

 

By making this change in your SHARED.ApplyStandardLayout: 

 

      /* Adjust the subfile headings */

 

      HTMLAPI.adjustSubFileHeadings("Arial","8pt","orange",'left',"1px solid black");  

You could cause 5250 subfile to look like this …..

 

 

 

Note: The 'shipped' intention with sub files is to make them look somewhat like list views or grids, which is exactly what this orange example does not do.
