%T* - Position Cursor Outside Window


Normally, when a window is active and the window contains no input fields (AD=A or AD=M), the cursor is placed in the top left corner of the window.

This terminal command causes the cursor to be placed in a *COM system variable outside the window when the active window contains no input fields.

Command Function
%T* Switches between cursor placement in system variable *COM outside the window and standard cursor placement within the window.

%T* only applies to the next INPUT statement, and it must be issued before the INPUT statement.
