How it is possible to display an iSeries panel screen (5250) with a message (from a CL program) appearing simultaneously. For example, I'd like to issue the WRKOBJ command with the output of the command panel with a message to be displayed on line 24. I was trying to do this with the SNDPGMMSG command, but it is not working.
e.g., cmd: WRKOBJ OBJ(QGPL/*ALL) Panel: Opt Object Type Library..... - ..... ... ...... - ..... ... ...... - ..... ... ..... ....... .... ==---------------------------- F3=Exit... (Programmer's message from CL pgm)
I think you want to send a status message.Read this Search400.com article, Status messages help users get through long jobs. It will explain how to achieve this in a CL program. And this one, Status message in interactive programs to learn how to do something similar in an RPG program.
