By "iSeries display" do you mean the green screen?
You can add a function key button to the screen and the action behind that button would be to launch MS Internet Explorer on the client PC. Of course, this assumes you are running 5250 emulation on a PC.
The command would look something like this:


The STRPCO command must be run on the host system.
There is a server that must be started for this to work. I believe it is the host server.

I've not done this for a while so I'm not exactly sure of the specifics but this should point you in the right direction.

Hi List -

I am converting green screen apps using webfacing. I have some programs
with item descriptions (height/weight/width/where manufactured/cost, etc).
A separate server for DAM (Digital Asset Management) using Ascend software
will have images of those same items. A common key will be the unique item

What I hope to accomplish is to have a clickable link display on the iseries
display so a user can call up an image of the item being described. Any
clues welcome. Any sample code (I do not know java) welcome. Any books or
articles you can point me to welcome.

Thanks -
