handling popup map

Post by dhanraj09 » Tue Jun 09, 2015 8:01 am

Here is the process.

A 4 byte transaction invokes a module xyz, which fires a screen. When few details are entered on map and "ENTER" key is pressed, core logic starts in same xyz module.

Let's say we have 4 processes in core logic as shown below, and my requirement is to fire a new popup screen in between the process and receive input and continue from there.

Procedure division
Call ABC module
Evaluate output
If yes
Throw new map(popup map)(popup map will have one unprot feild to key in
Y or N)
If Y is entered we need to continue below process.

I am good with throwing a new popup map at that point. But I am not sure how to receive the map and continue the process from where the popup map has been fired. According to my understanding, when ever "ENTER" or "PF" keys are pressed, process is going to start from procedure division again, not sure how to start in between without loosing any data from process1 and process2..

Please help.
