NOOO

Tso does not have an easily accessible multitasking,
what You ask would be a task sitting there checking an action/calendar file
and then spring up interrupting the current work of the tso session..

NOT ergonomic and not easy to implement

If You search around ( the CBT tape for example )
there are a few "NEWS PROCESSORS"...
small application which will be invoked at logon time to show
messages, events, "NEWS" changed from last logon

You will have to invoke your REXX as a started task. Can you do that?

I can pass a request for this..if this application can be developed in rexx...

is it possible.

I have a idea of implementing this...

use system date and time.... and dynamically accepting the information and Passing this information in SAY" meeting at 3"

this should be displayed in Pop out paneL...(i even dont know to create panels too)..

the program will run in infinite loop and comes out if condition is true

...i can explain the requirement more clearer if this explanation is conundrumically written..


Regards

Syed

One thing to remember: You can't (I repeat: can't) invoke an ISPF panel from background. This have been discussed here in the past.

Not from background.

I would use the TSO command SEND or the TPUT macro.

Sometimes I wonder why I lose time replying and giving "TECHNICALLY"
correct explanation...

The only reminder processor which can be written with little effort ( also in rexx )
would be a batch application, scanning a calendar, waiting for events and
sanding a message to the tso USER...

YOU.. and I mean YOU,
cannot schedule an asyncronous task inside a TSO session,
and expect it to interact with ISPF ..
