cycles in Host on Demand macro

Postby yurad » Wed Dec 05, 2012 10:43 am

I need a simple macro for Host on Demand to monitor jobs in SDSF, just hitting "enter" in a cycle or hitting PF8, etc. I use this technique with all 3270 emulators. But, I don't see any obvious option to do it in Host on Demand xml based macros. Rather I can create a java program and run it from a macro, but it is not a straightforward solution.

could someone advise?

Weird, but it's got to be something!

Can you do a recording in HOD? What does it do then? Does it still do that XML format?

Yes, I can record macros in HOD. it is recorded as XML file. My problem is I don't know how to wrap this recording in a cycle.
I need something like "while" or "for" cycle. the macro I need should do endless loop hitting "enter" every few seconds.
