    Generally, you don't. That is, RPG (or other languages) can enable or disable shading by setting option indicators; but the printer file prints the shading.   You can print shading by specifying it on a printer file record with the BOX() keyword using the shading parameter. There are other possibilities such as overlays, but a BOX() is probably your easiest starting point.   Tom

    Thank You. I think I am on the right track as I have been messing with BOX parameter but am only able to produce thick black borders for a box, or solid Black thick line, so far it is not paying attention to any of my Shading Attributes. Always getting a sold thick Black line. Will it not work on HP Laser Printers?

    Will it not work on HP Laser Printers?   Will what not work?   What does the related DDS look like? How is the printer defined?   Tom
