Provide arguments to REXX from *REXX command in ISPF dialog

Postby arens » Fri Mar 18, 2011 5:52 pm

Hi all,

I'm currently writing an ISPF dialog and I want to call a REXX in there. For this, I am using the *REXX command as follows
*REXX(*,(REXXFUNC))

My REXX starts with
/* REXX */
ARG PARM1 PARM2

Now the question. How can I use *REXX to call REXXFUNC with two parameters? E.g.:
*REXX(*,(REXXFUNC P1 P2))

But this doesn't work.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
arens

The documentation shows the syntax a little differently.

Hi,

thanks for your reply. However, I don't get what you mean. This is the syntax I already saw in the PDF version. Maybe I'm too blind ;) . Could you please tell what you mean with "shows the syntax a little differently."

The third sample I showed is what I hoped to have but what is not available according to the syntax diagram. But maybe there is another way to pass parameters to the REXX.

According to that diagram, the names of the dialog variables come first, then the member name, i.e.:

*REXX(P1,P2,(REXXFUNC))

Anyway, isn't there an ISPF Edit Model that you can use to show the correct syntax?
