This issue’s utility by Carsten Flensburg is a very handy program that displays a pop-up window in your 5250 screen whenever you receive a break message. When a message is sent to your message queue, a pop-up window displays, overlaying part of your screen, then disappears after three seconds (or until you press Enter), then restores the screen text it overlaid. If the message has a severity of 50 or higher, a beep is sent to the workstation. Only messages that are up to 60 seconds old will be displayed in the pop-up window; all other messages will be sent as a status message and appear at the bottom of the current screen.
