Question: 

On the DMLO status line it shows current record, error-status and DBKEY but does not show Page Group or Radix.

Will this be added?

Answer

There is a SHOW KEYPADS command that keeps track of the DBKEY, page group, and radix point for the current record. This screen can be displayed at any point in time without affecting any currencies established by standard DML commands.

DML ONLINE USER GUIDE, chapter CA IDMS DMLO Session Mainline Screens, section Database Key Display Screen contains the following:

"The Database Key Display screen appears when you enter the SHOW KEYPADS command. It displays database keys and page-information which are part of the subschema-control-block as well as the ten CA IDMS DMLO database work areas for DBKEYS (KEY0 - KEY9) and PAGE-INFO values (PGR0 - PGR9). Note that three equivalent formats are displayed.

 

This screen has no provision for data update. Changes to DBKEY and PAGE-INFO values occur as a result of executing CA IDMS DML commands, or in the case of DBKEYS as a result of MOVE commands which specify one of the database key fields as a target."
