.INPUT name, rows, columns



The name of the input window (a maximum of 15 characters).


The number of rows in the window.


The number of columns in the window.


The .INPUT command defines the name and size of an input window and marks the beginning of the input window definition.

Name must be a unique window name within the window library.

If you use .PLACEMENT, rows and columns must be set to values that enable the input window to fit in the application window, unless you first use .DISPLAY_AREA. (You can use .DISPLAY_AREA to make a display area that fits in the application window, even if the input window doesn’t.) The .PLACEMENT command causes Script to logically place the input window, which in turn causes Script to determine whether the input window will fit in the application window.


The following examples show the beginning of two input window definitions: cusinf and realbig. Cusinf is 12 rows by 40 columns, while realbig is 48 rows by 78 columns.

.input cusinf, 12, 40
.input realbig, 48, 78
