Determine a sized of input field

Postby kaky » Mon May 10, 2010 11:21 pm

hello,
i'm trying to build ispf screeen that has 3 input fields. each one should contain only 4 chars.
i defined the attribute something like that:
_ type(input) color(blue) hilite(uscore)
and i want it to have a width of 3 chars.
for some reassons, only combobox listbox etc. have the option to determine the width of the field.

Is there any option to set width of regular input field ?

thanks !

Enforce the width by making the field variable name 4 bytes in the panel source.

nothing could be more wrong

the only reason for that statement would be not having looked at the manuals
here is a link to the ispf bookshelf
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... s/ISPZPM61

the field length is automagically determined by the attribute that follows any field
look at the manuals for the default values or use the MODEL command for samples

i didn't find the answer for my question.
i just want to put one field (not a repetable field by the number of the rows that should be in the table) that its length is 3 chars only.
in model section, as i understood, there is no place to determine width. only the concept of the table design and how each row would be.

There is not width paramter for regular input field.

In your panel definition, do you have the line(s) like:

)Attr Default(%+_)
% TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(HIGH)
+ TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(LOW)
_ TYPE(INPUT) INTENS(HIGH) CAPS(ON) JUST(LEFT)

As was mentioned before, you can use one of text attributes (+ or % by default) at the end of an input or output field to set it's length.
