I might like to help, but your post has me confused. Perhaps you could clarify what you're looking for, what you've already done, and where specifically you need help.

You CREATE a panel definition using the ISPF panel language. You can DISPLAY an ISPF panel using the standard ISPF Dialog command DISPLAY, in REXX or any other language. If you just want to CREATE a panel, I'd suggest that you use on of the pre-defined panel models (the Data Entry model would be a good one to use) in your own panel library and make your changes as needed.

Why are you re-designing an existing ISPF function? Anyway, if the ISPF 3.14 option is close to what you need, then why not just use that panel's design as a template for yours.
