8.6.6 Entering a Parameter Picture

The Parameter Picture screen shows the current parameter form as it appears when menu actually runs. The last line of the screen shows the common functions available and the next to last line of the screen displays the parameter form name. All parameter fields defined on the form are highlighted. If you move the cursor to a parameter field, menudef displays the parameter field name by appending the name to the parameter form name on the next to the last line of the screen.

When you SWITCH to a new parameter form, the Parameter Picture screen is initially blank and a parameter form name is automatically assigned. When you UPDATE an existing menu, the Parameter Picture screen shows the existing parameter form and its name.

When you leave the Parameter Picture screen with the SWITCH or EXIT keys and there are no parameter fields or background text, menudef automatically removes the parameter form.
