Hi,

can one of you help me by answering below questions.

1) In which dataset ISPF panel are stored.

2) if we need to use a user defined panel in a rexx program using ispf display statement, how to make the program to refer to the user defined panel instead of default library.

to explain more...

i have created a panel say panel1 which i have in my personal library and i wrote a rexx program to call this panel. when i execute this exec it searches in the default library for Panel ( i would like to know this dataset name ????). How to make it refer to the panel which i created. where i need to concatenate my panel library and using which command.


thanks for your kind help

regards
Muthu

Hi,

when Panel command is used in the program the program searches in the datasets concatenated under the ddname ISPPLIB ( I actually wanted to know this DD name- my first question). For those system defined the panels will be available in the files starting with sys* like

SYS1.ISPFNEW.ISPPLIB
SYS1.MVS.ISPPLIB

In order to pick the user defined panel, concatenate the library to ISPPLIB using the following

ADDRESS ispexec
"libdef ispplib DAtaset id('"userid()".exo.rexx') " /* panel lib */
"libdef ispLlib DAtaset id('"userid()".exo.LOAD') " /* load lib */
( you can add these lines in the exec before running it - this is what i expected for my 2nd question)


tso ISRDDN will show all allocated libraries and their connecting DDNAMES .

Now i think its clear
thanks
muthu

hello all,

muthukumar

do not forget to do a
"libdef ispplib" in your exec when you are done
apart from that you got it all figured out right !!!

muthukumar,

note you only need to define ISPPLIB if this is for panel processing...
Code:

ADDRESS ispexec
"libdef ispplib DAtaset id('"userid()".exo.rexx') "

'"userid()".exo.rexx' can be any dataset of your choice (pds or seq), basically code your own name and be careful with the quotes using rexx.
