I can see now that the way I wrote that is confusing. By iSeries display I meant the converted green screen - after I've used webfacing to change the green screen to gui.

When certain converted screens display, I want to include a link to graphics that are associated with other information displayed on the screen - ideally with some kind of overlay so the picture of the item and the item text description will appear together.

The link will appear on the converted (is 'webfaced' a verb?) screen but would not be present in the green screen.

Thanks -

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.
