Genie Output Fields and Labels

By default, all 5250 output text processed by Genie will appear as output field elements or widgets.

An output field element is a container for text supplied by your 5250 program or by a JavaScript expression.

Changing Labels

To adjust an existing label, simply double-click the label and change the text.  This is useful in expanding abbreviations now that Genie allows for more screen space (e.g. changing qty to quantity or csz to city/state/zip).

Adding a new Heading

To add a new label, select Label in the Widgets Toolbox and drag it to the screen.  Double-click the label to modify the text, font, color, alignment, and formatting.

Creating a dynamic output field

To create an output field that is evaluated through a dynamic JavaScript expression, enter script: or js: plus the appropriate expression into the value property of the field.
