I am using a panel to display ISPF table using MODEL. The column headers in the panel are defined as type RP. The problem I am facing is that, column headers having tab stop. so when ever I press TAB it skips through each column name. Also these column names are editable too.





provide a solution to make this RP field non-editable. I have help panels for these RP.

ISPF option 0 has this:
Code:
Tab to point-and-shoot fields

I am not sure, but you might be able to remove the 'tabbing to'.
Why are they type(RP)?

But other panels of the same application having point and shoot fields. so disabling this will affect the other panel. I am looking for a solution exclusive to this panel which will not make any impact on system or any other panels of same application.

Whether to tab to point-and-shoot fields is a user preference. If I were you, I would leave it alone. Use the NewLine key instead of tab to navigate to the table rows.

If you think of the requirement perspective, its not solution. Also I need to know how to make the TYPE(RP) fields non-editable.

The options I have is, make the TYPE(RP) to normal fields, implement field help and control the type and value through a rexx program.

But here I am looking for my options with TYPE(RP). I want to know if there exists a way to handle it with keeping TYPE(RP).

I think the more universal user requirement is: "I want my settings to take effect everywhere. I do not want to figure out all of the nuances of Casper's panel."

I think Don's advice was very appropriate and you should not discount it.

I think it is easier to set the type in the )ATTR section and if it is constant, set the value in the )INIT section. If the column heading changes, then set it in your rexx program.

Yep, I hate it when a dialog developer changes my user preferences for no good reason. I offer the same advice to to anyone who asks how to mess with the user's PFK definitions.

I have used RP fields extensively, mostly on HELP panels, and it never would have occurred to me to prevent users from tabbing to them.

I am sorry, if sounded offending. I didn't mean that. Also its not just one application or one panel. A user setting is global. It affects all other applications and panels. Also, if you try it out you will find it that its not a solution. enabling/disabling "Tab to point-and-shoot fields" doesn't make a difference in this case. Trust me, if I haven't tried all these, I would have never asked such a question here.

There is no other way I can manipulate the properties of TYPE(RP) values?
