Use popup keypad for Sys Request commands

A quick way to perform commands from the System request menu when using Client Access is to create macros that perform the commands and then create a popup keypad with each command on it. For example, to view the system operator messages using sys request you normally would press alt+print screen, 6, and enter. I created the following macro called SYS06.MAC:

 [sys req]

I then set up a button on the popup keypad linked to this macro. To perform the command now, I right click on the screen and press the button on the keypad for the macro.

I have one pad set up for various shortcuts I use and a second one exclusively for the Sys Request commands.
