ISPF Short cuts

Postby basha504 » Wed May 03, 2023 5:40 am

Hi - In the ISPF, i have seen certain people browsing code and clicking on the parmlib and it takes directly to that Parm member. Is there any shortcuts or commands to link that?


Assuming the above as a reference JCL code, when you are in this JCL, is there way to Click on lets PROCNAME or PARMNAME so that it takes to you to view the particular Proc or Parm?

I do not believe that ISPF provides that capability. I think that you can do that by creating an editor macro that uses the cursor position to determine the dataset name and also launch a VIEW session. Perhaps someone here can provide an example or you can ask your colleague. The command is often named 'ZOOM'.

The setup would be to add the macro to your SYSEXEC concatenation and then assign a PF key to invoke the macro. And use it by positioning the cursor and pressing the PF key.
