If I type SWAPBAR in ISPF panel it says "Invalid Option". I think i dont have that option.

Can we write a code for SWAPBAR?

With Vista, it is easy to program your mouse to MoveCursorEnter when you double click. (That may be the default behaviour now). That gives you an easy way to point and shoot.

I don't think I've altered any mouse actions in Vista, and this seems to be the default action.

well, it is actually, SWAPBAR ON
as i stated in the initial post of this thread.
and,
as I said, ISPF v.1.10,
but,
it common behavior in this forum
to look and remember only half of what is written
and then complain,
without determining if the COMMAND was entered correctly,
or if your site is running the required level of the software.

lucky this site is free,
be really silly to pay to advertise one's incompetence.

MR. dbzTHEdinosauer,

To turn ON the swapbar we can give either "SWAPBAR" or "SWAPBAR ON". both command will work. if you have doubt please see"QW SWAPBAR"..

I have ISPF v.1.10 only.

But im still im getting "Invalid option".. After that only i relalized that it will not work since we have the customized version of ISPCMDS ahead of the IBM version.

So I wrote a small REXX program and executed in order to enable the SWAPBAR command.

/*REXX*/
ADDRESS ISPEXEC
"SELECT PGM(ISPTL) PARM(&ZPARM)"

now it is working fine. hope you understand now.

Anbu,

You've been here long enough to know not to tail-gate an old topic. Please make sure you start a new one in the future.

Sorry, Prino, yours now looks "disjointed". Perhaps something has changed in the previous two years?

i understood all along.

glad you spent the last couple of hours looking into this and solving the problem on your own,
as you did not receive any help from the forum
on this site specific problem.

i would also suggest using IBM manuals as your reference source
instead of 3rd party tools ("QW SWAPBAR")l,
they are not always up-to-date.

and yes, just SWAPBAR will invoke the opposite of the last entered.
