Sdsf output queue adjustment

Postby jacobscarf » Sat Dec 14, 2019 4:08 pm

I was wondering if it is any way to change color of specific column. Is it possible to e.g set max-rc column color?

Possibly - if you have access to the panel source, know how to code panels and add your modified panel to your panel library concatenation.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I will say no.
The ARRANGE command can set the column width, but not the color.
SDSF uses the same panel ISFPCU41 for several displays, the actual display is using a dynamic area populated by variable ISFBUF and you cannot influence how SDSF builds that variable, nor can you intercept and modify it. Changing the color specification of the attribute character used for the MAX-RC column will also change the color for other columns using that attribute.
But I would love to be proven wrong, it could be a nice feature.

Yes, you can customise SDSF panels almost limitless. I'm using a bit of REXX by Doug Nadel that can colour about anything you want to colour, with some added code by me that shows the panel you're on in the address bar at the bottom of the screen. As the code is copyright IBM/Doug Nadel, I cannot share it here. Basically, any SDSF screen is a dynamic area that you can process using panel REXX.

I would argue that you should not change the entire column! Please only change the values that are noteworthy. For example, for MAX_RC:
When (max_rc = 0) then color = normal
When (max_rc <= 4) then color = yellow
When (max_rc > 4 ) then color = red

or similar logic.

Basically, any SDSF screen is a dynamic area that you can process using panel REXX.


In this same situation, I used a rexx panel exit that is called from the )INIT section. The result is the same as using panel rexx, but I thought it was easier to edit / maintain as an actual rexx program. I suppose it is a personal preference.

See my SHARE presentation that describes this:

Thank you for all replies. I found a bit of Doug Nadel REXX, do i was managed to customize my sdsf. Despite to copyright it's still possible to find it.

I was proven wrong, good ;) Never be too old to learn new tricks. I have used dynamic area before, but not in a )INIT section. Many thanks to Pedro and Prino.
