Customizing other QMF functions

QMF for TSO and CICS® offers the ability to create end-of-application messages and customized application panels.

QMF for TSO and CICS offers the ability to use the MESSAGE command to define a message that appears on a QMF object panel when your application ends. You can also use ISPF, GDDM, or another panel manager to create customized panels:

  • Application panels that run complex queries and produce customized reports
  • Panels that prompt users for necessary information, such as date and type of report wanted. The prompts help a user with limited knowledge of QMF to use the query and report-writing facilities of QMF.
  • Panels to provide your application with online help that is similar to the help that is provided by QMF for TSO and CICS.
