panel definition statements

Postby aradhana11 » Thu Jul 02, 2015 2:36 pm

I have made ispf panels using panel definition statements. When viewing a panel, if i press F3, it directly exits the application and goes to the dataset list. How do i fix it so that on pressing F3, it navigates to the previous panel/screen. Please help.

What dataset list? Where are you invoking the panel from - while developing it should be something like 7.2. PF3 simply takes you back to where you when you invoked the panel as long as PF3 is defined as END.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I have used panel definition statements to make panels. I want to make PF3 work in such a way that, when i am on a panel and i press F3, I am navigated to panel immediately before it and so on.

it directly exits the application

It is not clear what you mean by 'application'. Typically, there is a program that issues the DISPLAY service. When you press PF3, that translates to return code=8 from the DISPLAY service. Your program has to tolerate that return code.

And you mention more than one panel... it is your program logic that needs to handle what happens when PF3 is pressed on a panel.

Show us your panel definitions and your application program.

Consider 2 panels. One panel has two options '1. Backup 2.Restore'. On selecting 1, the other panel appears where the user can enter '1. dataset (to backup) 2. tape name'. Now on this 2nd panel if the user doesnt choose any option and presses PF3, the previous panel containing '1.Backup 2.Restore' should appear.

how to I implement the above functionality?

Simply check the return code from the sub-panel and, if acceptable, re-display the primary panel. I.E. put it all in a loop. (You did put it in a loop, didn't you?)
