I have created the following program, but I get an error during the compile that says SNDRCVF command not allowed.  Any suggestions would be appreciated:

PGM
DCLF                 FILE(DPALMES/SRCFILE)

DCL VAR (&OPTION) TYPE(*DEC) LEN(2)
DCL VAR(&IN03) TYPE(*LGL)

LOOP:
                         CHGVAR &OPTION 0
                         SNDRCVF          RCDFMT(SCREEN1)

                         IF                   &IN03 RETURN
                         IF                   (&OPTION *EQ 90) DO
                                               SIGNOFF *NOLIST
                                               ENDDO
                         GOTO LOOP
ENDPGM

Ok,
I finally figured out the sndrcvf error but when I hit the F3 key which is supposed to terminate the program it does nothing, in addition when I enter '90' it still does nothing.

Can anyone see where I have that wrong?

Define the *IN03 key and &option within your display file...... It is sitting on the display waiting for something to happen.

So I just need to add the field and give it the name IN03 correct?

ok I added a field at the bottom

'F3 - Exit'

Gave it a name of IN03 and then saved the display file.  When I hit the F3 key when the program is running, I get function key not allowed.

Idea?

dpalme:

In order to use a <Fn>-key, the display file must be configured for it. This can be done either at the file level or the format level. If it's done at the file level, the <Fn>-key will be enabled for all formats in the file.

To enable a <Fn>-key use the CAnn (Command Attention) keyword or the CFnn (Command Function) keyword:

     A          R SCREEN1
     A                                      CA03(03)
     A                                      CF06(06)

This would enable <F3> as a CA-key and <F6> as a CF-key. <F3> is associated with indicator IN03 and <F6> is associated with IN06.

In your CL program, the indicators would automatically be defined as logical variables with the names &IN03 and &IN06. You do not want to create any fields with names that match indicator names. The literal [F3 - Exit] is just a literal, nothing more.

The difference between CA- and CF-keys is basically that a CA-key only returns the indicator to your program, but a CF-key returns the indicator plus all the other fields from the screen. If you don't want to process any fields when <F3> is pressed, there's no reason for the values to be sent back to your program from the display file.

How do I do this with SDA? Is that possible? Or do I need to edit the dds?

In SDA you can use option 8 (Select Keywords) Put a 'Y' next to 'indicator keywords' and add CF03 as keyword and 03 in the Resp collum...

Two of you got me where I needed to go so I'm going to increase the points by 50 and then split them.

Thanks Mind and tliotta
