Hello, Is it possible to activate a 'general key' besides the attention key which can be set for each individual user on the iSeries? I want to give a certain group of users the opportunity to use a Print Screen Pgm when the standard shortcuts (Ctrl P etc..) don't work as expected due to an interface error with the printer. Best Regards, Chris

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assuming you’re using Client Access, you can remap key combinations to set up an alternative ‘print screen’ or other function.

As far as I know, this would have to be done on an individual basis on each PC.

Hello,

If you are talking about the Attention Key that is set up in the User Profile on the iSeries, you can write a CL program to use and add that CL program in the User Profile by group or user.

    If you want to print the green screen to an iSeries attached printer (that is, through an OutQ) in Client Access, you can use Ctrl | NumLock. The print will be placed on the job's output queue. This will bypass the CA print screen to windows-attached printer function you're having trouble with. This key combination in CA is NOT remappable, at least not in my version of Client Access (5.5). Now, this function must use a runnable function on the iSeries, but I can't find out what that is. If anyone knows, then it may be possible to make an explicit call to it. That would allow you to use an attention key program, where the program to call runs that print screen function; but the attention program is very useful for many things, and restricting it to this (currently unknown) function, when print screen is available two different ways from CA, may not be very helpful.

    Hi, Is there no solution to the interface error? Then maybe you wouldn't need to go down this route. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
