Note: If you do not have a SWITCH command installed (visible in your command system, see example below), click here for the procedure to add it.

 


 

 

The group of command buttons that appear in the lower left area of the main H2OS screen are referred to as a "command system".

 

 

 

 

The highlighted SWITCH command (with it's tooltip visible here) is used to switch between installed command systems, if more then 1 command system is installed.

 

 

H2OS is installed with a single command system, so the SWITCH command is not included in the default command system installed with H2OS.

 

You (or we) can create an alternate or supplemental command system, you're free to do so and then use the Switch command to switch between the systems.  

 

If you have defined more then 1 command system (see "how to create a command system"), you can use the Switch command to replace the current command system with the next available command system, switching through all available command systems in a round-robin fashion.

 

When the SWITCH command is processed, a message like this will appear to confirm the action.

 

 

 

When command systems are switched, a message like the one shown below will appear,  with the name of the switched to (now current) command system.

 

 

 

Switched-to command systems automatically become the current command system (i.e. appear  as the command system when H2OS is started).

 

 

Notes

 

1.  The H2OS installation includes just 1 LMCMDS.DBF.  Since the SWITCH command works when there are 2 or more LMCMDS_xxxxx tables in the installation, the SWITCH command will take no action until the 2nd table is created.
