It is possible to initiate DC prints from within IDD, but there are two styles of print.
One is to just print the current screen, the other is to print the entire contents of the current IDD work file, regardless of how many pages it is.
This document describes the different methods available to invoke these print functions.
Release : All supported releases
Component : CA IDMS
IDD Screen Print
A simple print of the current IDD screen contents can be initiated by a PF key.
IDD Work file Print
A print of the entire IDD work file can be initiated by the PRINT top-line command from the IDD screen.
This command is assigned a PF key by the means of the KEYS statement in System Generation. PRINT is assigned internal FUNCTION 10 which is mapped to PF12 and PF24 as can be seen at KEYS Statement Usage.
As an example, to change it so that PF10 will invoke a print of the workfile, the following System Generation syntax can be used:
MOD SYS nnn.
MOD KEYS FOR TABLE SYSTEM
FOR APPLICATION IDD
PF10 = FUNCTION 10.
If the same PF key is used, the print of the screen takes precedence.
