SET CURSOR

Switches the display of the text-entry cursor on or off.

Syntax

SET CURSOR ON|OFF

Comments

The CURSOR option is set ON by default.

When CURSOR is ON, the text-entry cursor is displayed on the screen when a text form field has focus. You can switch the text-entry cursor off when its logical location is already indicated by enhanced display attributes in the form field (specified using the FORM SET command). For example, you could switch the text-entry cursor off in menus.

Some terminal types do not enable the text-entry cursor to be switched off; in these cases, SET CURSOR OFF has no effect. In some environments with attached terminals, the sequences that turn the text-entry cursor on and off must be included in your terminal description file.
