Hi !


Normaly no. You can define your own Panel or modify that one.
But normaly you can use TSO Option 6.

Regards, UmeySan

hello,

Thanks for the replay. but I need to change some string which is greater value to be fit in that line.
I need to do some editing in editor itself. So I cant use Option 6.

Here's a possible work around:

c 'abc' 'xyzqrst ect to eol~'
c ~ 'continue on'

or

c 'abcdetc=====================================>' ~
c ~ 'wxyzetc=====================================<'

Jack, could you please explain your post a bit? This looks like a change command in editor. I don't understand this.

Hello Abhijit,

Yes, those are editor change commands.

What they accomplish is getting a "long" value changed to a different "long" value (the length of the 2 values combined is greater than will fit in the command area).

By changing the "input" value to ~ (after ensuring that ~ cannot be in the data) in one command, the ~ is then changed to the required long value by the second command.

Got it!
I was confused by =====, which we usually use as p'==='.
