Invoking a Panel.

Postby samrat189 » Thu Mar 11, 2010 3:37 am

Hi Guyz,

How can we invoke DLIST panel(result panel of 3.4) directly without invoking 3.4 for a given data set?

Thanks
Bevel.

Hello,

Write your own code to gather what you want and move that information to a panel?

I suspect i misunderstand your request. . .
Hope this helps,

Without knowing what you want to achieve it does make it rather difficult to offer uselful suggestions.

Perhaps if you took the time to explain what you want to do, and the reason why then maybe the more experienced members might be able to be more helpful. In the meantime ...........................

Sorry Guyz for the trouble :(,hope below descripton helps.

as we all know
"Data Set List Utility" panel takes lot many input options along with "DSName Level" and gives us "DSLIST" panel with resulting datasets.

Now,
During my work,I frequently use few datasets with same high level Qualifiers.every time instead of giving 3.4 nd type,can I a PFkey assigned to a rexx prog which invoks Dlist panel directly.

please ping back if its not clear..

Have you looked into using the DSINFO--data set information dialog service ISPF Service?

With SPLIT NEW command you can have more than 2 screens active. Open your 3.4 panel and use SCRNAME D34 command to assign a name. Leave it all day by using SPLIT NEW to open additional screens.

Jump to that one by using SWAP D34 command or assign SWAP D34 to a pfkey.

SWAP LIST - shows all open screens so you can hop there by number or name.
SWAP n - jumps to that numbered screen from LIST
SWAP NEXT - cycles thru open screens in sequence.

I use ISPF workplace so that I can access the many options available in one place including dslist. It is available in most shops by using the ISPFWORK command. My mentor showed it to me about 12 years ago and I use it every day. I mean, it saves a little time as you don't have to go through as many panels to do the same thing.

I don't know if this helps for this particular issue or not. Just thought I would throw it out there just in case.

I have recorded "START 3.4"+Enter key sequence and assigned it to one F-key in the emulator. Now everything I have to do to get to 3.4 is to move the cursor to the Command line and press that key.
Plus, it really helps to have "SWAP n"+Enter (or n+F9) commands for n=0..9 assigned somewhere near.

Hope this helps.
