Displays the key definitions created with the DEFINE/KEY command. Format SHOW KEY [key-name]
|1 - Parameter|
key-name Specifies the name of the key whose definition you want displayed. For a list of valid key names, see the DEFINE/KEY command.
|2 - Qualifiers|
2.1 - /ALL
Displays all key definitions in the current state (or the state specified with the /STATE qualifier). If you use the /ALL qualifier, do not specify a key name.
2.2 - /BRIEF
/BRIEF (default) /NOBRIEF Displays only the key definition and state. The /BRIEF and /NOFULL qualifiers are equivalent.
2.3 - /DIRECTORY
Displays the names of all states for which keys have been defined. If you have not specified a state with a key definition, the SHOW KEY/DIRECTORY command displays DEFAULT for the state. You cannot use the /DIRECTORY qualifier with any of the other SHOW KEY qualifiers.
2.4 - /FULL
/FULL /NOFULL (default) Displays all qualifiers associated with a definition. By default, only the state of the definition and the definition itself are displayed. The /FULL and /NOBRIEF qualifiers are equivalent.
2.5 - /STATE
/STATE=(state-name[,...]) /NOSTATE Displays the key definitions for the specified state. If you specify only one state name, you can omit the parentheses. State names can be any appropriate alphanumeric string. State names are created with the DEFINE/KEY command. If you omit the /STATE qualifier or use the /NOSTATE qualifier, key definitions in the current state are displayed.
|3 - Example|
$ DEFINE/KEY/TERMINATE PF1 "ATTACH BOB" %DCL-I-DEFKEY, DEFAULT key PF1 has been defined $ SHOW KEY PF1 DEFAULT keypad definitions: PF1 = "ATTACH BOB" $ SHOW KEY/FULL PF1 DEFAULT keypad definitions: PF1 = "ATTACH BOB" (noecho,terminate,noerase,nolock) The SHOW KEY command in this example displays both the definition and the state for the PF1 key. This is the default display. The SHOW KEY/FULL command displays all qualifiers associated with the key definition.
