You can create Area objects using methods and properties of the Screen object, such as Area and Selection.

Using the methods and properties of an Area object, you can read from or write to the presentation space, an area in PC memory that stores the screen data of a terminal session. A presentation space includes data from the status line (called Operator Information Area in 3270 sessions). Each presentation space position stores a screen character.

To access the presentation space, you must know the exact number of rows and columns that an emulated terminal provides. For example, if a session emulates a terminal supporting 24 rows by 80 columns, you can reference presentation space positions from row 1, column 1 to row 24, column 80. For VT sessions, you can also specify the page.
