EXCHANGE is a Commodity Exchange program that monitors and controls all of the other Commodity Exchange programs.

CX_PRIORITY sets the priority of Exchange in relation to all of the other Commodity Exchange programs. All of the Commodity Exchange programs are set to a default priority of 0.

CX_POPKEY enables you to specify the hot key for the program. If more than one key is specified, be sure to enclose the entire argument in double-quotes (i.e CX_POPKEY "Shift F1").

CX_POPUP will keep the Exchange window from opening.

The SHOWHINTS YES option can be used to display usage information if you position the cursor over selectable items.

LEFT, TOP, WIDTH, and HEIGHT can be used to customise where the Exchange window should appear on the screen and the size of the window.

To exit Exchange once it has been started from the Shell, press Ctrl+C or use the BREAK command.

Example:

3.OS4:> EXCHANGE CX_POPKEY "Shift F1") The Exchange program will be started and it window will appear on the screen. If you Hide the window, then want to bring it back again, the hot key combination is Shift + F1.
