Journal Viewer-View Data Details-Add Prev/Next buttons

I'd like a Previous and Next button on the Journal Viewr...View Data Details window so I can roll thru the entries one after another and follow the trail of the entries and not have to right click on each one.

Use Case:

I am needing to look at the data in a journal receiver.
Using ACS, Schema component, Journal Receivers, Journal Viewer, I can see the entries on a list. To see the detail data, I have to right click on an entry and choose View Data Details. For each record I want to view the data from.
See attached word doc.

    The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a MEDIUM priority requirement that should be addressed.

    Background: The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at
