In RPG IV when working with Screens, we see programmers using *INKx response indicators, *INxx regular indicators, and the WSDS Pos(369) to determine which Fn key was pressed. RPG needs a built-in function, %FKEY() that allows users to test which key was pressed. The parameter could be with simple Fn values, or *Fn if that's easier. For example: EXFMT ASKUSER; IF %FKEY(F3); return; endif; or... If %FKEY(*F3); return; endif; Another less desirable but acceptable syntax would be: IF %FKEY() = *F3; return; endif;
With the consolidation of IBM i developer talent evolving from homogenous shops to the mix of 40-year talent, S/38 experience, S/36 users, and new YiP developers all in one shop, programs are getting really ugly. CFxx key response is one thing contributing to that deterioration.
