Hi,

I have created my own ISPF panel with action bars. Now I want to create shortcut for them. I want to access the action bars by entering shortcut in my command line.

Dont find any materials related to this.

Thanks
Rameyshkanthan

ISPF does not support shortcuts.
You might consider enabling "Tab to action bar choices" in your ISPF settings which allows you use your home key (usually Pos1) to position the cursor on the first action instead of the first data entry field.
Shortcuts are only supported when ISPF runs in GUI mode.
I would not recommend using the ISPF GUI interface. It's ugly, pretty useless, and requires the installation of the ISPF workstation agent on your local workstation.

1. set a PF key to ACTIONS, for example PF10

2. define your panel action bar with MNEM parameter
Code:
)ABC DESC('Toolbox') MNEM(1) 
MNEM identifies the mnemonic to be used. In this example, T is the mnemonic.

3. In the command line, type T and press F10. The Toolbox pulldown will be opened.

Thanks Pedro for this excellent tip.
I knew the ACTION command since many years but was not aware of any reasonable use.
It's never too late for old dogs to learn new tricks.
