Question about ISPF function key executing

Postby marshall25 » Wed May 08, 2013 8:53 am

i have a quick question in my mind, in ISPF, usually we have some function keys definded, like key 'TAB', the cursor will go to next input field if we press 'Tab' button, can we have ISPFEXEC statement to get this function? if yes, could you show me in example, thanks~

The TAB (or Shift-TAB) key, as entered on a real 3270 type terminal. does not cause an interrupt to be generated, so ISPF (or the mainframe software running the terminal) has no way to detect it has been entered.

First you should explain what problem you're facing.
What can be done by ISPF services: You can place the cursor on any field before displaying the next panel. In a series of panel displays this might look like the user have pressed the TAB key multiple times.
There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.
