    It's in the small print Notes: 1.Turquoise and yellow fields have column separators even if DSPATR(CS) is not specified. (The column separators appear as small blue dots between characters on color displays. They disappear when the display station user sets the color display station for reduced line spacing.) http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iadthelp/v7r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.etools.iseries.langref2.doc/rzakcmstdfcolor.htm

    Yep, it's just a fact of color characters on 5250 displays. A detailed look at how 'color' became possible in the early days when color terminals first became economically feasible would show why the column separators show up for those two colors. It's not totally clear why terminal emulators can't easily make them disappear. . Tom

    But, its working fine with Mocha Soft Emulator. // ** They disappear when the display station user sets the color display station for reduced line spacing **// Can you tell me how to set this? I think few other things also cannot be solvable in IBM i Access for Windows Emulator. Like 1. if we mentioned column separator for other colors except Turquoise and Yellow its taking only for these two. 2. Blink is working only for color RED. 3. color attribute not working with PSHBTNFLD.( by default its taking only green) Surey.

    .
    Yes. Buy an emulator product that has that option. (I'm not aware of any currently available, but there are a number of emulator products for sale and I only use a couple of them.)
    .
    The old DOS emulator that ran under OS/2 used to have full 5250 graphics support, and I've always been irritated that it was no longer available after Windows took over everything. Displaying performance graphs and similar items right in the terminal windows was handy.
    .
    But I suspect that anything like that would only be in more expensive products if anyone offers it at all.
    .
    Of course, there is an open-source TN5250 project at SourceForge. You can always download the source and make the option work yourself.
