I am newe to panels and am planning to write a panel which should display the records read from file. I am planning to use Rexx to read the input file with reecords and then display all these records based on conditions in a panel. I might have different number of records for each processing reequiring the panel are to be dynamic. Can anyone please provide with any working examples how this can be done or tips in this direction.
If you are going to do some operations on the displayed data (like sort, filter, locate etc.) , I would suggest populating an ISPF table with the records, and using Table Display Services to show it in a panel.
But I read in some forum that if we use ispf tables the performance is going to be incinsistent. And for the manipulation I am not going to do sort, filter etc. but just have to scan through the file to see what records needs to be displayed which I am gong to handle in my Rexx program.
So basically what I would need to do is if I have 10 records in the file I will need 10 lines in the panel and if I have only 5 I should have 5 not limiting me to any maximum.
