This includes a Constant backside overlay that doesn’t require backside programming. Normally, the entire display is deleted on each output operation.

The display will have the following records: Retrieved from ” https: If the value specified for a parameter is outside the valid range, it is flagged oberlay the spooled file is created. You use this record-level keyword to specify that the record format that you are defining should appear on the display without the entire display being deleted first.

OVERLAY (Overlay) keyword for display files

Directions to FTP are: REC3 prints two overlays. Design the overlay using a PC application. Microsoft Word works fine. To delete any of the records on the display, use the ERASE keyword to specify the names of the record formats to be xs400. If the overlay fails to create, see Step 1. Also create it without a member.

If this is changed on the printer it shouldn’t have to be changed each time you print. Add a member for the overlay to be created.: The following example illustrates the location of the overlay using the previous DDS code. The format of the keyword is: Personal tools Create account Log in. If you already have drivers and get errors use the above set of drivers.


All records on the display with fields that partially or completely overlap fields in this record are deleted before this record is displayed; all others remain on the display and are not changed in any way.

Most of the time the overlay fails to create because there is no data in the file bad ftp ovfrlay the wrong driver was used.

AS Overlays – Printing with Overlays

Create a PF on the iSeries. It must be defined as length of 10, data type A characterand usage P program-to-system. The optional rotation parameter allows you to specify a rotation value for the overay.

The overlay prints 1.

When the beginning attribute character of a record overlaps the ending attribute character of a record already displayed, the attribute characters overlap each other in position 1 of a line. Create the overlay on the iSeries using the following command: Keyword entries overla printer files positions 45 through OVERLAY Overlay keyword for display files You use this record-level keyword to specify that the record format that you are defining should appear on the display without the entire display being deleted first.

For example, assume that the following records are on the display: It must be defined as length of 8, data type A characterand usage P program-to-system.

A program-to-system field for rotation must be defined as length 3 with 0 decimal positions, data type S and usage P. Valid values are 0, 90, and I would set up at least theand DPI printers. When you specify the position-down or position-across as program-to-system fields, the fields must be defined as length 5 with 3 decimal positions, data type S, and usage P.


Otherwise, data on the display can be lost if the file is suspended. Consider the following additional points about the rotation parameter:. This keyword has no parameters.

Use the optional library-name parameter to further qualify the overlay. If the form is on paper you can scan the form using Acrobat. In either case, print to one of the afp printers that were created in Step 1. You can specify the library-name, overlay-name, position-down, position-across, and rotation parameters as constants, program-to-system fields, or a combination of both, as shown in the following examples: By using the code examples, you agree to the terms of the Code license and disclaimer information.

The overlay rotation is set to a value of 90 degrees. DDS keyword entries for display files positions 45 through Ftp file to the iSeries or copy to the IFS. A record already on the display is deleted even if fields specified in the record format are not selected for display.

I would create one for each application or each DPI. If you save the AFP output file to c: If an application uses private resources for example, fonts, page segments, overlays, or GDF files not distributed with the systembe aware of the following information. The last field of the first record displayed ends in the farthest right display position of the preceding line. Valid values are 0 to
