Abstract : This specification establishes the detailed design of a computer program identified as the Form Processor, hereinafter referred to as the FP. The FP is one configuration item of the Integrated Information Support System (IISS) User Interface (UI). One of the objectives of the IISS testbed is to allow applications to be run from a wide variety of terminals using formatted screens for input and output of application data. Instead of the application programs having to contain terminal dependent code to send/receive formatted screens to/from various types of terminals and to perform terminal control functions, the program may use the set of callable execution time routines of the FP. The major functions of the SP are: 1) Opening and displaying a form, a template defining fields and their attributes; 2) Placing data into a form and/or into a form message line; 3) Sending the form to the terminal; 4) Reading the data from the terminal; 5) Stacking/replacing forms currently open for the application program; 6) IISS logon processing; 7) NTM message processing; and 8) Window management processing.
