How to call PRGM-Editor from program?

Post by deetee » Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:00 am

I don't know, if it's possible but ...

Can I call the program editor (PRGM) directly from a program (without pressing f-PRGM)? There is no command "PRGM".
I would like to switch directly from a MENU to the program editor.

Thanks in advance.

No, there is no way for a program to activate PRGM mode.

No problem, my pleasure.

Just out of curiosity: why are you looking for this functionality? It doesn't seem very useful, and even if you could do SF 52, it would take a lot more to support programs generating programs.

Dear Thomas!

Sorry for the late reply (holidays).

The "spreadsheet-intelligence" of my "spreadsheet app" (viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2231) is concentrated in one file (PRG.raw) with one label for every cell ("A1" to "C6").
Finally I wanted to offer the user one soft-user-key to jump to the wanted label more or less directly and edit the formula/program of this cell/label/program.

Unfortunately the user has now to press SHIFT GTO, choose the label and press SHIFT PRGM.
