Fields

You can change the values on the Set Display Options panel. To modify a setting, move the cursor to the value you want to change, type the new value over the current value, and press Enter to record the change.

ASF
The current status of the automatic panel facility (ASF). Permitted values are ON and OFF. The default is OFF.
BELL
The current status of the audible alarm (ON or OFF). The default is OFF.
BELLINT
The minimum interval for audible alarm. The default is 5.00 seconds. The maximum interval is 99.00 seconds.
DATEFORMAT
The display format of the date. Specify the format as USA (mm/dd/yy) or EUROPEAN (dd/mm/yy). The default is USA.
FIRSTSCREEN
The first panel that OMEGAMON for Db2 PE displays after the copyright panel. You cannot change this value. The panels are arranged for easy access to product information.
LOG
The current status of the log function (ON or OFF). The default is OFF. When the log function is ON, the current logical panel is logged each time you press Enter (or at regular intervals, if you are in automatic update mode).
MINORCASE
The type of letters OMEGAMON for Db2 PE uses to display minor commands (upper or lower case). The default is LOWER.
SCREENCASE
The type of letters OMEGAMON for Db2 PE uses to display its output in the panel (upper or mixed case). The default is MIX.
SCROLL
The amount to scroll the page. The default is a full page (PAGE). It can also be the position of the cursor (CSR).
TSF
The current status of the timed panel facility (TSF). Permitted values are ON and OFF. The default is OFF.
XLF
The current status of the Exception Logging Facility (XLF). Permitted values are ON and OFF. The default is OFF.
ZEROS
The type of zero display. When this parameter is ON, OMEGAMON for Db2 PE displays the number 0 in fields that have a value of 0. When this parameter is OFF, OMEGAMON for Db2 PE displays a blank in these fields. OMEGAMON for Db2 PE does not save the value of this field in a profile. This value will return to the default each session.
Display
Determines the type of entries that are acceptable in several other fields in this panel. If you want to change the display settings and save the changes in a profile, Profile Definition Mode must be turned ON before you make the changes.
BASIC
Sets the intensity of field types (for example, major and minor commands) on monochrome terminals and non-EDS (extended data stream) color terminals. Permitted values are High and Low.
Note: When the BASIC display option is used on color devices that can support EDS, OMEGAMON for Db2 PE will treat that device as a 4-base color terminal (non-EDS).
HIGH
All fields are displayed in high intensity.
LOW
All fields are displayed in low intensity.
COLOR
For color EDS terminals only: Sets the color of each field. Color names are red, green, white, blue, pink, yellow, and turquoise.
Note: If you do not have a color terminal, setting Display to COLOR can cause your OMEGAMON for Db2 PE session to terminate.
If OMEGAMON for Db2 PE is provided a color value instead of an intensity value, or vice versa, it makes the following internal conversion:
  • On a non-EDS terminal, values of green and blue translate to low intensity. All other color values translate to high intensity.
  • On an EDS terminal, a value of HI translates to the color red; a value of LO translates to the color green.
ProfileDefinitionMode
Controls the definition of color and highlighting within a user profile.
OFF
Changes affect only the current OMEGAMON for Db2 PE session.
ON
Intended when creating or changing a user profile. After defining the settings, issue a profile save command for these definitions to be saved and reused. Setting this keyword to ON permits to configure options for different types of terminals on the same panel. If you want to save color setting changes in a profile, Profile Definition Mode must be turned ON before you make the changes.
ExtendedHighlighting
Used only with devices that support the extended data stream.
OFF
Extended highlighting features are not available. Use with non-EDS devices.
ON
Extended highlighting features are available. When Display=COLOR, this value is automatically set to ON. (Extended attributes are not supported in ISPF mode.)
Note: Do not set ExtendedHighlighting to ON unless you have a terminal that supports an extended data stream (or unless you have ProfileDefinitionMode is ON). If you do this accidentally, you can get a PROGnnn or a panel erasure error. You can press the ATTN or PA1 key to resume the session, but be aware that this action also clears the current security authorization and the current panel.
Major
Controls color (LOW) or highlighting (HIGH) for major commands and their output.
Minor
Controls color (LOW) or highlighting (HIGH) for minor commands and their output.
Immed
Controls color (LOW) or highlighting (HIGH) for immediate commands and their output.
Default
Controls color (LOW) or highlighting (HIGH) for other unprotected fields (for example, error message text, help text).
XACB Display Options
Controls exception analysis message text. The fields Clr1 through Clr7 can be used as substitutes for the color names (Red, Blue, and so on) or highlighting (High and Low) when customizing exception messages with the XACB command.

The following table shows the possible variations of settings according to the type of terminal you are supporting.
