var data = { "TXTNAME": "" };  // initialize data for the screen

function hello() {{
    //path: "/helloScreen.js",  // get meta definition from IFS path
    path: "PUISAMPLES/QDDSSRC(HELLO002D)",  // get meta definition from DDS source member
    data: data,
    handler: function(response) {
      pui.applyResponse(data, response);
      if (response["BTNEXIT"] == "1") {  // exit button was pressed
        alert("Good Bye");
        document.body.innerHTML = "";
      else {
        data["NAME"] = "Hello " + data["TXTNAME"];  // greet the person
        hello();  // redisplay the screen
