LANSA has several functions which can be performed by using function keys. These are:
The column headed "Function key" has been left blank because the actual function key number assigned to the function is set during the LANSA installation procedures.
This allows the function key assignments within LANSA to match your installation standards. For instance, some sites use function key 1 for EXIT while others prefer key 3. Likewise, some sites use function key 8 for ADD while others use function key 6.
All LANSA screens show the function keys that can be used on lines 23 and 24 of the screen like this:
F1=Help F3=Exit F12=Cancel F14=Messages
This example shows function keys 1, 3, 12 and 14 assigned to the functions Help, Exit, Cancel and Messages respectively. If your function key assignments are different, then this will be reflected in the display.
It should be noted that only the currently usable function keys are ever shown on any screen. For example, the ADD, CHANGE and DELETE function keys have no use on any of the system menus and thus are not displayed.
