Zooming in to see all of a record

In CHAR, HEX, or LHEX display format, if you want to show all of the data in a particular record without having to scroll left or right, you can “zoom in” by moving the cursor to the record, then pressing the Zoom function key (F2). Z Data Tools limits the display to just that record, as shown in Figure 1.

The zoomed display automatically scrolls to the column that was shown in the Col field prior to zooming.

Note: This example shows data from the second record type in the sample data set, as that record type holds more character information.

To zoom out, press the Zoom function key (F2) again. Zooming toggles between zooming in on one record and zooming out to show multiple records. When you zoom out, the display format returns to its setting prior to zooming in. For example, if you zoom in when the display format is CHAR, then change to SNGL, zooming out returns the display to CHAR format.

In SNGL or TABL display formats, when you zoom in on a record, just that record is displayed in “zoomed” SNGL display format, as shown in Figure 2. This format differs from “normal” SNGL display format, in that:

In TABL display format, zooming in automatically scrolls to the field that was at the left of the screen when the display format was TABL.
