Labeling the function key and positioning it on the screen

The function keys on each QMF panel have labels next to the function key numbers. To ensure that the label appears on the screen, add a row to the function key table that identifies the label.

In this row, make sure that the columns of the function key table have the values shown in the following table.

Table 1. Values for the second of two rows required for each function key definition
Column Value Information
PANEL ID of the QMF panel to be customized This is the same ID that you used for the first row of the definition.
ENTRY_TYPE L L indicates that the row defines the label associated with the function key.
NUMBER Depends on whether you are customizing a full-screen panel or a window or help panel If you are customizing a full-screen panel, this is the number of the row where the key appears on the display. For example, on the home panel, F5 appears in row 1, so the NUMBER column in this definition would have a value of 1.

If you are customizing a window or help panel, NUMBER represents the number of the function key (as it does in the first row you added to the table that links the command).

PF_SETTING Text of the function key labels For full-screen panels, QMF displays on the screen exactly what you enter in this column, and does not adjust for spacing. For example, if you are customizing the QMF home panel, you need to enter all the keys that appear on that panel, whether or not you customized them. QMF does not automatically assign the default key settings for keys that you do not customize. See Figure 1 for an example.

For window panels, you need to type only the label of the key in this column. See Figure 4 and Figure 5 for examples.
