ScreenMan Form Editor

ScreenMan Form Editor Introduction

The ScreenMan Form Editor is a screen-oriented tool for creating and editing ScreenMan forms. It allows you to select and drag form elements and edit their properties through a ScreenMan interface. It can run on character-based terminals, such as the DEC VT-100 and Qume QVT-102, if properly defined through the Device Handler.

As you use the Form Editor, it is helpful to have printouts of the data dictionaries of the files containing the fields you will be placing on ScreenMan forms. You will need to know such things as the data dictionary numbers of files and subfiles and the maximum length of the external form of data.
