This configuration variable determines when the cursor should be visible. It has three values:

1 always visible
2 always invisible
3 invisible except during ACCEPT statements, then visible

The default value is 3. Note that a change to the value does not take effect until the next ACCEPT or DISPLAY statement. The sample program MENUBAR.CBL contains examples of how to modify the cursor from within a program. The cursor is always set to Normal, Visible when the runtime exits or when the SYSTEM library routine is called.
