Hi,

I have a requirement in my ISPF panel that all the keys except the "Enter" and "PF03" should be disabled. Is there any way to do that.. I tried .PFKEy but could not disable the other keys.


Regards,
Arun

I'm not sure I follow. I don't believe that there are any other commands available for a non-scrollable panel other than Enter, END, and HELP.

I believe that SPLIT can be disabled via an ISPF CONTROL ... statement.

I don't think that you are allowed to disable the HELP command.

Hey ,
I think what superk has said is quite true. In a non-scrollable panel, only <Enter>, pF1(HELP), pF2(SPLIT), pF3(END), pF9(SWAP SCREEN), pF12(RETRIEVE) become active. I have not found any ways to deactivate these keys.

You can disable SPLIT and SWAP from ISPF:

ISPEXEC CONTROL SPLIT DISABLE

Try KEYS command and set your own action for the keys.

No, certainly not.

Edit your code. Enter the MODEL command on the command line to retrieve the ISPF models. Select the option "M2 CONTROL" under Miscellaneous.

This is what is pasted into your code:
Code:

                                                             
    For split mode:                                           
                                                             
  'CONTROL SPLIT ENABLE'                                     
                                                             
    SPLIT     - Specifies ability to enter split screen mode.
    Optional, choose one:                                     
      ENABLE  - The user can enter split screen mode.         
      DISABLE - The user cannot enter split screen mode.     
                                                             
         EXAMPLE:  ADDRESS ISPEXEC                           
                   'CONTROL SPLIT ENABLE'                     
                                                             


As an example, this REXX code should work:

Code:

/* REXX */                                 
"ISPEXEC CONTROL SPLIT DISABLE"             

Run it, and then try to issue the SPLIT command. Then, run it again using
Code:

"ISPEXEC CONTROL SPLIT ENABLE"

and then try the SPLIT command.
