Macro Manager toolbar

The Macro Manager toolbar is a toolbar that contains icons for common macro operations. All of these icons can be used by macro developers, while at least one of the icons is also for users of macros (the Play macro icon). Figure 1 shows the Macro Manager toolbar. (For the purpose of illustration, this figure is inaccurate in one respect: it shows all the buttons on the toolbar enabled at the same time.)

To view the Macro Manager toolbar follow these steps:
  1. Start a Z and I Emulator for Web client.
  2. Start a terminal emulator session (3270 Display session, 5250 Display session, VT session, or CICS Gateway session).
  3. Click View > Macro Manager
Depending on your company's configuration of the display session, you might notice that a few of the icons on the Macro Manager toolbar also appear on the main toolbar. This placement is for extra convenience and should not cause you any concern. The icons work the same no matter which toolbar they appear on.
Here is a quick summary of the function of each part of the Macro Manager toolbar, from left to right. You will learn more about each of these functions later in the book.
