Hi Friends,

Is the mainframe login panel for the user is saved in his library.

I tried to search for the panel name in the system library and i could able to locate the panel in ISPPLIB.

I have modified the panel using the options by displaying the calendar instead of the user information in the right.

Where does these information reside. Does the same panel name will be saved in the user library?

I could not able to locate the panel definition in my user library.

I need to display custom details in the panel. Is it possible?

1. The mainframe login screen is usually very, very different from the ISPF primary panel. It is not clear which you are talking about. The mainframe login screen may be a VTAM screen or it may be a session manager login screen -- you would have to contact your site support group to find out for sure which it is and where it is stored.

2. You need to read the ISPF manuals very closely to understand some of what you're asking -- start with the manuals on the link at the top of the page and go from there to others as needed.

3. The ISPF primary panel can be customized, will always reside in one of the concatenated ISPPLIB data sets, and depending upon what you're wanting to change on it, may be easily modified or impossible to modify -- that all depends upon what you're wanting to do with it. This panel is usually named ISR@PRIM (IIRC) and has absolutely nothing to do with mainframe logins.

And if you play with the primary option menu, be aware that it will affect many users.

Thanks Robert and Expat.

Robert,

You are right. The name of the panel is ISR@RTE.

If i make a few modifications to my TSO mainframe panel ( i think this would be better instead of mainframe login panel) like adding a calendar to the panel where does this modification / changes will be stored is my doubt.

I will try to go through the manual and contact site people.

Thanks a lot for your support Guys.

I do not think you understood the previous comments. I do not think you can easily replace the login panel (normally defined as the panel where you provide the password that allows you to login).

If you want an ISPF panel with a calendar, I suggest start with ISR@PRIM and change the options to look like your normal ISPF menu.

If you change the panel source code, it will be stored in a special ISPPLIB dataset that you must have first in the concatenation. Depending on your site, the ISPPLIB allocations may be in a JCL PROC or in a LOGON CLIST/REXX.

Something that changes frequently (as a calendar) is not a good choice to put right in the panel source code. This should be done via a program.

That is why I recommended starting with ISR@PRIM. It already has a calendar. Use the action bar -> Status -> Calendar to see the calendar.

I think you can use ISR@PRIM as a base for your own menu panel.

It is not as simple as copying the panel. You can update the body of the panel, but you probably still have to call it ISR@PRIM. That is, ISPF seems to have code that fills in the calendar.
