but the problem is still there.

The problem is in your understanding.

This example:
Code:
/* rexx */               
Address ISPEXEC           
"VGET (ZSCREENW,ZSCREEND)"
Say    ZSCREENW ZSCREEND

is a rexx implementation, but the key point is that ISPF provides variables to determine the screen size. You can use VGET from compiled languages to.

ps. I realize the task is not to determine screen size, but how to save job output.

But he is writing this in VB, not REXX, so he can only use the scripting language of his emulator. He would have to run this REXX on the mainframe somehow then capture the output.

Yes, and i believe this is the new direction being investigated.

Sorry, I did not read all of the posts. </blush>

But I do not think you need to know the current size of the screen to determine how many jobs there are. The last part of the panel title has the number of jobs in the list.
Code:
   Display  Filter  View  Print  Options  Help                                 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 SDSF HELD OUTPUT DISPLAY ALL CLASSES LINES  100,879    LINE 1-11 (15)         
 COMMAND INPUT ===>                                            SCROLL ===> CSR 
 NP   JOBNAME  JOBID     CRDATE    C FORM FCB  DEST      RMT NODE   TOT-REC O-GR

In this example, there are 15 jobs.

Your emulator macro should be able to get a screen capture and examine the results.

---or--
If you still want to pursue your current design, just scroll by a fixed amount rather than the variable amount. That is, scroll by 10 instead of by page.

@Pedro - Its true that if we scroll by certain amount the there will be no need of knowing the screen size. But there are two limitations

1) My emulator doesn't provide the information in the way you shown rather its something like..

-------------------------------------------------------- IOF Job List Menu ---------------------------------------( 61 )-----------
COMMAND ===> SCROLL ===> CURSOR
----------------------------------------------------------- Output Jobs -----------------------------------------------------------
-------JOBNAME--JOBID---ACT-STAT-OWNER----DEST/DEVICE-------RECS-HELD-DAY--TIME-PAGES-HELD-ALLOC---RLSE CLASS-SECLABEL-------------


so there is no information on the jobs.

2) I am a mainframe guy with very limited knowledge of scripting language and to learn a complete language in limited time that too for a small tool is overkill I guess.

Yes I was able to capture the info running REXX EXEC so I will ne using that info for my further improvement in this tool

Thanks again thanks for your help


Regards,
