Does anyone know how to set the SCRNAME in a REXX exec?

The obvious "ispexec scrname test" doesn't work, and there isn't anything obvious among the "ISP.SISPLPA(ISP*)" modules...
Any clues?

Why do I need it?

I'm using Doug Nadel's SDSF's ISFPCU41-with-hilite panel, and it would be nice to change the text on the swapbar to indicate the current SDSF panel, so that I can select the right one directly, rather than Alt-Tab (a macro for Tom Brennan's Vista tn3270) to it.

I think the ISPF variable ZSCRNAME is writeable.

Well, if you had given the complete requirement to begin with... icon_wink.gif

Will passing it between the panel and the driver work?

There is no driver, I need something that works from inside PANEL REXX.

The solution came from the ISPF-L list, and in essence it gives an extensible solution to Pedro's Better use of ISPF screen names in SDSF RFE, although it's going to need a bit of tweaking to make it suitable for general consumption. icon_smile.gif
