Displaying an iSeries panel screen

How it is possible to display an iSeries panel screen (5250) with a message (from a CL program) appearing simultaneously. For example, I'd like to issue the WRKOBJ command with the output of the command panel with a message to be displayed on line 24. I was trying to do this with the SNDPGMMSG command, but it is not working.

 e.g., cmd: WRKOBJ OBJ(QGPL/*ALL)
Opt Object Type Library.....
-   .....  ...  ......
-   .....  ...  ......
-   .....  ...  .....
(Programmer's message from CL pgm) 

I think you want to send a status message.

Read this Search400.com article, Status messages help users get through long jobs. It will explain how to achieve this in a CL program. And this one, Status message in interactive programs to learn how to do something similar in an RPG program.
