Reply with quote

Hi,
actually i want to display a rexx panel but at the same time my rexx code should continue execution,

but what is happening is that, when i display my rexx panel it actually awaits the input from user (it may be a PF key or an enter hit by the user).

is there any way where in i can display the rexx panel without making my code await user input?

Thanks,
Vasant.

ispf does not work that way.

There exists a rexx/cics panel facility in Rexx for CICS Transaction Server.
In Netview there is also the possibilty to display panels/pop ups etc.

if You really meant...
using a rexx script to display an ispf panel, then...
why not look at the ISPF manuals for the facilities provided by the ISPF command ...
Address ISPEXEC CONTROL ... as in

Hi,

I am actually displaying a pop up (rexx panel) as shown in attachment.

actually i want the user to wait till the processing is over and so want to display a panel asking him to wait.

but when i display it its waiting for the user input (atleast to press an enter) so is there any way where in i can display this popup and continue the execution of my code?

You keep talking abour REXX Panels so You must certainly be right!
please tell us a reference where You found that the proper term
is rexx panel and not ISPF panel so that we may amend our way of thinking icon_evil.gif

Hi,

Sorry its the ISPF panel itself. but since i was using this panel with REXX code so i was using the term as Rexx panel.

Now can you help me in displaying an ISPF panel from the rexx code without awaiting the user input?.

below is the code which i used for generating the panel

)ATTR
@ TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(LOW)
$ TYPE(OUTPUT) INTENS(HIGH) COLOR (WHITE)
! TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(HIGH) COLOR (WHITE)
)BODY WINDOW(50,4)
+
+ Please wait...Processing Record...
+
)END

Hello,

Strongly suggest that you use proper terminoloty rather than something you made up that happens to suit you.

Confusion caused by "made up" or improperly used terms is just a waste of everyone's time. . .

Since you revived a five-year-old thread instead of starting a new one as is proper,, I doubt if you will be aided.

If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to display a 'work in progress' panel while the Rexx continues to run? If so, then look up CONTROL DISPLAY LOCK in one of the manual references that you have been given.

I will advise however, if you expect the user to stare at a screen for more than a minute while your Rexx churns through its processing, then you will have an unhappy user. Better to submit a batch job to do the work, so that the user can do something else in the meantime. Locking up a screen is usually a bad idea.
