RM/COBOL's RM/Panels is a graphical user interface that uses panels (screens) and controls defined in a Panel Library file. The RM/Panels application interacts with the panels and controls through a RM/COBOL program runpan2.cob. The runpan2 application has been converted to be compatible with Micro Focus COBOL, so that RM/COBOL applications that use RM/Panels can be converted to run in Visual COBOL, when compiled with the Dialect"RM" Compiler directive.

An RM/Panels application has the following:

In addition to these elements taken from the original RM/COBOL application, the following additional elements are required for the application to run correctly in Visual COBOL:
