Invoke Panels in option 6

Postby atodpquery » Sat Oct 31, 2009 2:27 am

At work I watch others doing work over the shoulder using a commands in option 6.

What procedures are involved in invoking a panels in option 6 commands. Knowing that a panel is used to invoke a JCL for submitting a job. Should it be a REXX program to display() the panels. If so, what setup or access I need only from option 6 to invoke the panels.

:?: :idea: :P

How about asking, "Hey, can you show me how your command displays a panel?" An good example helps you grasp the concept. Also, the ISPF manuals used to have many "beginner" samples to display a panel.

REXX code can use the ISPF DISPLAY command to fetch a panel from the ISPPLIB files and act upon the values entered (submit a job, create a table, etc.)
