Hi!

I'm trying to call SDSF from my REXX in full screen mode.

For example: I have a list of Job names in my REXX and when the user selects one of those, I want SDSF to open up at the point where one would usually get by entering DA, FIND Jobname, ++s.

Doing the whole thing in batch isn't a problem, but i want SDSF to stay open and being used in interactive mode by the user.

Any hints?

Greetings,

Timm

I'm not really sure what you want.

Can you give some more detail of your requirement and we will try to help.

What is semi-batch ??? It is either batch or it is not batch.

I want to call SDSF from within my REXX exec.
I want SDSF to behave just as if called directly from ISPF but sort of "pre-enter" some commands.

I can do something like

ADDRESS ISPEXEC "SELECT CMD(SDSF) MODE(FSCR)"
or
ADDRESS TSO "SDSF"

but that only takes me to the sdsf start-screen.
Now i would like to play a Macro(?) of commands, as if i would type "DA", "PRE my_prefix" "++s" myself...

To be honest, I have only ever used REXX in conjunction with online SDSF to specify a filter for a user, but I can not see a reason why you should not be able to take this further and do what you need.

As a first call, I would troll through the SDSF manual to see if there are any restrictions that apply.

Unfortunately, I don't have MF access at the moment.

ADDRESS ISPEXEC "SELECT CMD(SDSF PRE "||plex||"C*;DA;ST;"FIND "r_region
