Why not read up about map attributes and see if there is another way?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

"I've always thought displaying Xs or dots rather than "nothing" is less secure than displaying "nothing," which is all a 3270 can do. The problem with displaying something, as in Windoze, is an onlooker can readily see how long the hidden item is. The problem with the 3270 "nothing" is an onlooker can still see the cursor move.
