Handling DISPLAY Output : Working with DISPLAY output

Working with DISPLAY output

WebSpeed provides support for Web formatting in the SpeedScript DISPLAY (and SQL SELECT) statement. In effect, this support allows much of the automatic output formatting of the DISPLAY statement to be reflected in the Web page. You can also control how this formatting is mirrored in the HTML.
The SpeedScript DISPLAY statement provides automatic output formatting suitable for a report or display terminal. WebSpeed handles this output in different ways, depending on how you use it. WebSpeed also provides mechanisms to change the way it handles this output.
When using the DISPLAY statement, you must decide two issues:
*Where the output is going
*How the output is going to look
* Directing DISPLAY output
* Formatting DISPLAY output
