How to check the number of splitted screens

Postby Stefan » Fri Aug 01, 2014 2:07 pm

Hi everybody,

in our homegrown software configuration interface I want to offer a line command which starts a VIEW on a dataset in a newly splitted screen. I already know how to split the screen and start a VIEW. But to present a message if the user has already reached the limit of screen splits (in our installation it's 8) I need to know how many screens are currently open.
I've studied the manuals but didn't found any ISPF variable containing the total of current screens.
Any idea on this?

No further action required.
Some nice guy on another forum pointed me to variable ZSCRCUR which I missed as I searched only for the term "split".
Thanks anyway to those who already mediated on this topic.
