Invoke SDSF with 'ALTERNATE' rather than 'PRIMARY' field list.

Similar to a post starting with the same phrase - Jan 31, 2007 in the TSO/ISPF forum.

How can I set some kind of default preference so that my System
Display and Search Facility (SDSF) STatus screen initially comes up
with the 'ALTERNATE' field list rather than the 'PRIMARY' field list?

-------------------------------
(Also - my first topic posted. For future reference - How do I get the example screen to show as seen by the viewer rather than being compressed to the left by proportional type font?)

When I bring up SDSF to look at the STatus screen I want to have
fields like Max-RC, and End-Date displayed. (as shown below) These
fields are in the ALTERNATE field list, not the PRIMARY field list.

I have successfully done the "ARRANGE END-TIME A END-DATE' and
similar commands to get the columns to show in the desired order.
Thankfully, all of this column arrangement is 'remembered' from
session to session as being associated with the 'ALTERNATE' field
list. Unfortunately, every time I enter the SDSF ST screen, the
'PRIMARY' fields are displayed. I have to put my cursor on 'VIEW',
press enter, and chose option '4' to 'Change field list to ALTERNATE'


How can I set some kind of default preference so that my SDSF STatus
screen comes up with the 'ALTERNATE' field list rather than me having
to go through 'VIEW' and choosing 'ALTERNATE' each time?

Pressing 'ENTER' with the cursor on

Coded.

Use the 'code' button before to start the example and also after to stop it. Use the preview button to see what we will see later.

The initial screen you see is determined by the SDSF Initialization parameters. The GROUP you belong to (or your ID) will be assigned default screen and and alternate screen names. The person that controls SDSF customization would set this.

Are the fields different, or is it something you can fix through the ARRANGE command to set the order /size of the columns?

If a field is defined only for the ALTERNATE field set, ARRANGE cannot
be used to bring it into the PRIMARY set. When I am displaying the
PRIMARY fields, and say 'ARRANGE end-date a owner' a message comes
back 'column not found' and puts the cursor under the first character
in 'end-date'. The reason is that 'end-date' is defined only in the
the ALTERNATE field set. ('owner' is defined in both sets).
The SDSF manual says that users can re-order columns but not specify
what columns are displayed.

Further reading leads me to believe I cannot expect a setting that
will allow the ALTERNATE field set to be displayed first. The SDSF
manual says 'You can define a PRIMARY and ALTERNATE variable field
list for each SDSF panel. The PRIMARY field list contains those
fields that are shown upon entry to a panel. The ALTERNATE field
list contains fields that can be displayed by the use of the '?'
command.' That sure suggests to me that I should not ask how to
display the ALTERNATE set first. I should ask how I get the PRIMARY
field set to contain the several fields that I want.

So ... my restated request is ...
How do I get the SDSF STatus panel PRIMARY field list to contain
some additional fields that I want displayed upon entry to the ST
panel?

As I said, the screen definitions are set by the person/group responsible for SDSF customization. You must check with them.

Some fields require I/O to Spool and may be restricted to save CPU cycles and speed response times. SDSF calls these "delayed access" fields.

Apparently, you can toggle between the primary and alternate panels by typing '?' in the command line.
"ARR ?" allows you to quickly enter the Arrange panel.

If your TSO session automatically logs you off (after a period of inactivity) you may loose your new arrangement.
Hit PF3 to return to the SDSF menu, it usually saves the current values (prefix, sort, arrangement and so on).
