I think I've hit a bug here.

I have a choice field with 2 choices. In mode creation, both are available.
In mode visualisation, only the one that was selected is available. I blank
out the other one with CHCUNAVAIL((*DSPATR ND)).
Under the choice field, I have another I/O text field, field2. All works
fine unless I change field2. As this is a 1 character field, the cursor
exits and goes back to the choice field. The text of the unavailable choice
appears again (but not the radio button) and it is in white and
underlined!! If I hit enter,it disappears (resets)

Hi Dave,

You can eliminate the CHCUNAVAIL keyword and still get the protected
fields without changing the color attribute. Also, you can use the
CHCUNAVAIL keyword to set the protected choices at a different color
besides blue, or even as Non display, blink, reverse image etc..

Another note, I don't know if you are strictly green screen or if you use
any sort of graphical or browser based front end. If you do, be cautious,
sometimes they interpret these graphical dds keywords strangely (or not at

<<I'm beginning to wonder also. I checked out CHCCTL and have managed to
protect the choices alright, but the text associated to the protected
choice is coloured blue!!>>
