In a green-screen (TN5250) environment, you would typically use Screen Design Aid (SDA) to create a display file (*DSPF).  Here is a tutorial that explains how to create a display file.  You can just use literals to draw your shapes.


Here is a simple CL that will display a record format called SCREEN1 in a display file MYDSPF:

   dclf file(MYDSPF) rcdfmt(SCREEN1)

Dear Gary,

Thanks for your information, but i have to write everything in code.
Frits i have to write how many lines do you need in the figure betweter (2-10)
Then you have to choose between à square or a triangel
Them at last if you have choose a number between 2 and 10 and you have choose witch figure you want
Them my output have become like my first command
