when testing a new application, is there anyway to just look at the variables for that application - without putting a stop in your application somewhere?

The variables for your application are members on your ISPF profile PDS. I would think there would be some simple way in ISPF 7 to display them.. but all I seem to be able to display are ISR application variables.

I looked in the manual.. but the example they give is for ISR.

Thanks for anyone who can point me to something I can read on how to do it? or just tell me if it is simple enough and I'm just missing it?

thanks.

There's an option in the dropdown to change the application ID, and one of the 3.x functions allows you to browse tables, sorry haven't got z/OS running right now, so cannot be mere helpful.

If you want to look at profile variables, then the 7.4 'Dialog table' might be used.

i.e:
Code:
Option ===> 1                                                           
                                                                         
1 Display row            3 Modify row             5 Display structure   
2 Delete row             4 Add row                6 Display status       
                                                                         
Table Name  . . MLC0PROF  Open tables  . . nowrite  (NOWRITE or WRITE or
                                                     blank for no TBOPEN)
Row identification:            Current row  . :                         
By row number  . . 1           (* = current row)                         


Though I'm not sure how it will display no-shared tables is other screens, if at all.

thanks. I looked at 7.3 for drop down options - could find nothing to change the application.

the problem is - yes, i can invoke the function that takes me to my application - but then - how do I get back to the test panel without exiting my application? then I'm back to ISR when I go to 7.3 (I've tried).

so, thanks, Willy, I will check out displaying the variables thru the table option. icon_smile.gif

I think that setting is outside of the dialog test panels. You need to change the applid before entering dialog test.

Per User's Guide, vol 2, use the Options pulldown from the primary option menu panel.
