Issue/Introduction

Description:

The USER column is the most frequently customized column on the Member Selection List (MSL). This example shows how to set it to green and provides a template for other fields and panels.

Solution:

To edit any panel:

  1. Identify which panels need to be customized using the PANELID command in ISPF

  2. Edit each desired panel in the panel library ... CAIISPP

For example, in the BROWSE panel PSP12A0M review attribute characters are at the top:

 )ATTR       
   @ TYPE(OUTPUT) INTENS(LOW) CAPS(ON) 
   ! TYPE(OUTPUT) INTENS(HIGH) CAPS(ON)
   # TYPE(OUTPUT) INTENS(LOW) CAPS(ON) JUST(RIGHT) PAD('0')
   + TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(LOW) SKIP(ON)
   % TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(HIGH) SKIP(ON)
   _ TYPE(INPUT) INTENS(HIGH) COLOR(GREEN) CAPS(ON)<<<<<<<<
  ` TYPE(INPUT) INTENS(HIGH) CAPS(OFF)
   $ INTENS(HIGH) CAPS(ON)
   < TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(LOW) COLOR(YELLOW) HILITE(REVERSE)
   ~ TYPE(TEXT) INTENS(LOW) COLOR(GREEN) HILITE(REVERSE)

If the USER column has been un-highlighted and you want to set it to green,

Then if you find

 ~|+ MEMBER      LIB  LVL  USER  F     LANG   STAT  LMAINT   LACCESS  BLKS   STATMTSACT       
 ~V+ ----------  ---  ---  ----- -     -----  ----  ------   -------  ----   ---------- 
 )MODEL ROWS(ALL)
 [email protected]           @Z   @Z   @Z    @[email protected]   @Z     @Z     @Z        @Z      @Z      @Z 

You could change it to:

 ~|+ MEMBER      LIB  LVL  USER  F     LANG   STAT  LMAINT   LACCESS  BLKS   STATMTSACT
 ~V+ ----------  ---  ---  ----- -     -----  ----  ------   -------  ----   ----------
 )MODEL ROWS(ALL)

Note the underscore preceding the Z under USER
