SCREEN RESET

Resets the application window (BACKSCREEN) by re-displaying all active windows over it.

Syntax

SCREEN RESET

Comments

The SCREEN RESET command reverses a SCREEN CLEAR command by hiding the application window (BACKSCREEN) beneath all other active windows and making it the least current window.

During an input request, the Ctrl-R key sequence entered by the user has the same effect as SCREEN RESET.

Example

SCREEN RESET

is equivalent to the following sequence of commands:

window clear backscreen
window set not current backscreen
window display backscreen hide

screen clear   % clear prev. data & expose application window
output "Output to printer? (y/n)" ;
input Response
if Response = "y"
 set output printer
endif
screen reset
