F keys — Job Optimizer

The MainView Batch Optimizer ISPF dialog uses F keys for navigation and processing purposes.

To display the F keys, type FKA on the Command line, and press Enter. The F keys appear at the bottom of each panel. MainView Batch Optimizer consistently uses the F key settings shown in the following table but sometimes activates other F keys for special functions. The dialog stores these settings in the keylist table. You can press the associated F key or type the equivalent command on the Command line.

Note

Because the F keys can be customized in your ISPF profile, the labels that are shown with the F keys on panels might not be the equivalent commands.
