I'm trying to write a macro that fills in a list of items with a list of properties. My only problem is I cannot find a way to reset controls (if I look at my key bindings, left ctrl is bound to [reset/ctrl]) I have tried many combinations of a few available functions, nothing works to clear the messages given when an item is updated.

    I cannot find a way to reset controls...   What do you mean by "reset controls"? What controls are you referring to, and what do you want to reset them to?   The [reset/ctrl] key on an iSeries Access emulator keyboard layout doesn't "reset controls". It's a multifunction key that can either reset a terminal error mode or can act as a control key (similar to a [shift] key).   Tom

    sounds like your program is sending an "error" message that requires pressing the left control key to issue a [reset],  Perhaps the control key is not mapped in the macro.  You might map the same function onto another key .. like ctrl-tilde.  Or you could edit the macro to put the reset code in the macro manually.

    @Phil: It didn't read like an "error" to me. It seemed like it was just a 'Item was updated' kind of status message. But an error could at least make some sense. I couldn't see any reason in clearing a status message. It'd be nice to get some explanation. -- Tom

    Right .. it sounds like a "status" message that requeires a reset key and he's trying to build the reset key into the macro ..   We need to know what PC side software is in use .. client access?

    A 'status' message doesn't need to be cleared by the workstation. It goes away as soon as the program that runs it either sends a new status message or ends. So the question still isn't clear to me, and knowing what software the macro is for would indeed be useful. -- Tom
