Abstract: Let $\mathcal{H}(\Delta , \Delta )$ be the family of holomorphic selfmaps of the unit disk $\Delta $ in the complex plane $C$. Heins established the continuity of the functional $\psi $ which assigns to $f \in \overline{{\mathcal{H}}(\Delta , \Delta )}-\{id\}$ ($id$ denotes the identity map) either (i) the fixed point of $f$ or (ii) the limit of its iterations or (iii) $f(\Delta )$ if $f(\Delta ) \cap \partial \Delta \not = \emptyset $ ($\partial \Delta $ represents the boundary of $\Delta $). Using an Abate extension of the Denjoy-Wolff lemma to strongly convex domains, we extend this result of Heins to selfmaps of strongly convex domains in $C^{n}$ with $C^{2}$ boundary.
