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

on the CRTCMD command, look at the HLPPNLGRP parameter. Look to the IBM infocenter for information how to create a panel group.

=====================================================

This is described in the <a href=”http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?topic=/rzahg/rzahgapdlprint.htm”>Application Display Programming .PDF</a> manual. Topic to read is ‘Assigning Panel Groups as Help for Commands’ in Chapter 20. Examples are included.

Almost all UIM panel specifications are in that manual.

    This is a bit of info from a cheat sheet I wrote recently. Hope it helps. This command builds a skeleton help text member, leaving only the entry of the command help text itself. This eliminates a lot ot tedious coding. GENCMDDOC CMD(PIDCOST/LODMLDCST) TODIR('/QSYS.LIB/pidcost.LIB/QtxtSRC.FILE') TOSTMF('LODMLDCST.MBR') <-- this is the command name itself GENOPT(*UIM) IBM suggests file QPNLSRC for help text, which is also known as a panel or panel group. Don’t be alarmed with the TOSTMF parm. The help text skeleton still lands in a typical AS/400 member in a standard file – PIDCOST/QTXTSRC in this case. Also, be aware that this command takes a little while to run. It is not nearly as fast as one might expect. Adding command help text is a great documentation method. Good luck.
