CALL RMP--RUNTIME USING RMP--U-HMC RMP--PARAMETERS
This utility function removes the mouse cursor from the monitor.
When RM/Panels opens a panel library, it checks for the presence of a mouse. If a mouse is found, the mouse cursor is displayed. The mouse cursor remains visible until you remove it. You may wish to hide the mouse cursor temporarily while performing some lengthy process, or you may wish to hide it while executing a portion of the application that does not support the mouse. While the mouse cursor is hidden, RM/Panels disregards any mouse events.
If your application does not wish to support the mouse at all, simply do not include rmpmouse.exe with your application. If this file is not present, RM/Panels does not recognize the mouse.
Before exiting from COBOL back to the operating system, you should perform this utility function to hide the mouse cursor. If you fail to do this, the mouse cursor is displayed at the operating system prompt.
