ISPF Settings commandline on top, HomeKey and TabKey

Filed under: mainframe — Himanshubhai Mistry @ 5:08 pm

When a new MainFrame ID is created for a new USER.

This is how it looks.

problems:

[1] Command Line is at bottom.
 >> generally we are habituated to and like to have in on top. 

[2] Pressing HomeKey places the cursor on “Actions Menu Bar”
>> It is cumbersome to take cursor on commandline by pressing the tab key number of times.
>> if it goes directly to commandline it saves time of pressing tabkey as thus helps working faster. 

[3] Pressing the TabKey places the cursor on each options in TSO/PDF option 3.4 Screen.

>> It is cumbersome to take cursor on DSN line (option 3.4 ) or selection column in PDS members listing  by pressing the tab key number of times which take on column headers.
>> if it goes directly to (selection) opton column (first column where we give commands to view,browse,info,copy etc) it saves time of pressing tabkey as thus helps working faster. 

solution:
[1] “Command line at bottom” << De-select / turn off this option (remove ‘/’)
[2] “Tab to action bar choices” << De-select / turn off this option (remove ‘/’)
[3] “Tab to point-and-shoot fields” << De-select / turn off this option (remove ‘/’)
