bhuspin,

Have you created a panel? If yes this question has to be moved to the correct forum.

PF5 is normally used for refreshing (clearing the contents of all the fields in the panel) the screen.

As per your post what do you want to FIND using PF5?

I have never seen that function. I doubt that is a normal use. What command is PF5 set to?

I had posted my reply assuming that the panel is in REXX. In REXX panels you can set the PF keys such that each one can be used for a specific function. The functions are user-defined.

A sample code is given below.

Code:
ADDRESS "ISPEXEC"
"ISPEXEC VGET (ZPFKEY) ASIS"
IF ZPFKEY = 'PF05' THEN
  DO
      SAY 'exiting from the tool......'
      EXIT(0)
  END


It can be used for any specific function and it all depends on our code.

Sorry to nitpick, but your sample code exits from the application rather than refreshing the screen. It cannot be normal usage if even you do not use it like that.

Yes. That was just an example.
