The following are a couple of pictures of the new refacing done with Newlook. They show the very basic out of the box look with a few changes which we made to replace the Vertical Scroll Bar with an UpDown Control. This is the very first stage of the exercise but shows what is possible after a very short period of time! These can be compared with the original screen shots taken below to show you how a very quickly you can transform existing 5250 screen into fairly reasonable GUI screens. We have a long way to go with the project and we are learning all the time, writing VBScript and Macro’s is not something we have done before so we are seeing a lot of stupid errors creeping in.. But we eventually get the way of doing things and then we can move forward very quickly.
Anyhow here are a couple of the pictures
If you would like to reface your application lets us know, we would be more than happy to share our experiences so far..
