PFKEY8 and ISPF tables processing

PFKEY8 and ISPF tables processing

PFKEY8 and ISPF tables processing

(OP)
I have an appliation that I want the user to "SELECT" several rows from ISPF tables.  NOT all rows are to be  "SELECTed" are on the initial first ISPF screen.  The user will select some rows on the first inital ISPF screen then HIT PF8 and select more rows and etc....  When the user is done I what him to HIT the "ENTER KEY" to start processing ALL the rows selected.. thanks.. I am very new to ISPF tables processing... I was able to get around my first problem by reviewing ALIST thanks !!!

RE: PFKEY8 and ISPF tables processing


You'll have to collect all the data which identifies each selected row and put them away someplace safe for later processing.  When the user is finished, retrieve all the saved data and start processing.

thanks.. that helps... I ran into other problem..
When I SELECT several ITEMS and then HIT PF8 , How do I capture that the USER HIT the PF8 key..  In the ISPF PANEL I save the MFKEY=.PFKEY.  BUT the Variable MFKEY has not value in (REXX). It is blank.

RE: PFKEY8 and ISPF tables processing


I presume you're running this in interactive trace ( ?R or ?I ).
