Hi,
i have developed one panel. I want to display certain information on that panel, but i have only 5 lines available on the panel while the information i want to display is of 20 lines.
Generally when we display panel in rexx using
"ISPEXEC DISPLAY PANEL" (or even with simple SAY), rexx execution halts for response from user, when user presses attn key rexx resumes.
Is it possible to 'scroll' the screen automatically without waiting for user to hit enter ? Means i will display first 5 lines then after a delay of say 2-3 sec, i will display next 5 lines. Can i continue this until user hits enter ??

I think you need to look at the CONTROL DISPLAY LOCK service, with multiple sets of DISPLAY services, followed by an CONTROL DISPLAY RESTORE service.

CONTROL is an ISPF Service, and it can be found in IBM's ISPF Services Guide.
