Cursor placement

Primary tabs

Greetings,  

What methods are available to position a cursor on a screen to begin writing as not to disrupt other areas of the screen?  I have used ?# , ie: ?5 but this is destructive from the let to character 5.  I would like to enter a command that will position at row,col and then start writing?  Can I create a window in a window type display to write text and then when done viewing, remove it?

Please advise,

Thanks in advance for everyone's time.

CHARWIN might be useful. But if you're extending an existing terminal-based application you may want to work the way the existing code does. And if you're starting a new application, is a terminal-based UI still the right way to be going?
