Display button by 5250 java


is it not possible to tranform a PSHBTNFLD from a 5250 screen by a real BUTTON aspect in a screen 5250 when we use IBM i access Client Solutions.
The button is actually transform as a simply box. There is no relief. It not looks like a button. I have all my screens 5250 where I put many buttons and colors and with real buttons should be more beautiful.

    The 5250 data stream for both products is the same. So both products will have the capabilities and limitations.
