Is it possible to throw ISPF panels from PL/I programs instead of REXX?

How to do that? Can you provide some examples please?

Please give reply ASAP.

Yes. You do it the same way you do in any other language.

You open an ISPF Edit session for the program source. You use the MODEL command in EDIT to show you the Model Classes. You should see a list of Model Classes for CLIST, COBOL, EXEC, FORTRAN, MSGS, PANELS, PLI, SKELS, PASCAL, REXX, DTL, C, SCLM, and ARCHDEF. You should selection Option 7 for PLI.

Next you'll see the PLI Language Models. Selecting Option D1 will paste the PLI code for the DISPLAY Service into your program. You take it from there.
