Since there is no bold for entry fields in a form, when screens say that highlighted info is invalid, but the invalid data and it's name tag are highlighted, it would make it much easier to find the offending input with this combined function. In some cases, the CICS program author has left it up to the user to relocate the cursor to fix the input, since there is no highlighting, I want to set the cursor to the first bold input field. This of course assumes that the current FindNextBold will find any bold, input or not.

Comment First-- FindNextBold WILL find any field, input or not...just checked the code.

How about:

<TESET offset=-1>
<TELOOP 1 1000 1>
 <TESET offset=FindNextBold(offset+1)>
 <TEIF offset == -1>
 <TEIF FieldIsEntry(offset)>
<TEIF offset != -1>
 <!-- if there is a bold entry, it is now
     identified by the offset>

Comment I knew I could do it that way, it'd just be simpler with a prebuilt function. Obviously not critical, since it can be built.
