4.19 Special Entries on the Process Menu

"Special entries" on the process menu are IBM i CL (control language) commands that have been defined to LANSA using this facility.

Any IBM i CL command that can be executed via IBM supplied programs QCMDEXC or QCAEXEC can be included onto a process's main menu.

The steps involved in the definition, review or change of special entries on the process's main menu are:


 1. Select the option to review or       |          |

    change special entries on the        | PROCESS  |

    process definition menu.             |DEFINITION|

                                         |  MENU    |



 2. Define, review or change the         |          |

    special entries that are to appear   | REV/CHG  |

    on the process's main menu.          | SPECIAL  |

                                         | ENTRIES  |



In addition, the command can be "prompted" at the time it is being used to allow you to specify or change the associated parameters.

CL commands that allow you to display or control your own jobs are most commonly included on the process's main menu. Some of these include:


Work with submitted jobs


Work with current job


Work with output queue


Work with job queue


Display message queue


Send a message
