Working with a PCML call that I *almost* have working....the issue seems to be that one of the parameters is the length of the structure which I am not sure how to calculate/get.  The API being called is:

In this example of calling QSYRUSRI, they call getOutputSize() to get the size of an output parameter.

https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.4?topic=ssw_ibm_i_74/rzahh/pcmldata.htm#pcmldata__pcmlqsyrusri

Assuming getOutputSize() only works with usage="output", maybe you could define another dummy program with the struct defined with usage="output", and get the size of that parameter.

Something like this, a bit kludgy, but maybe it will work ...

<program name="rnwc0300Size">
<data name="rnwc" type="struct" struct="rnwc0300"
usage="output"/>
</program>

...

pcml.setValue("qycdrnwc.reqdataLength",
pcml.getOutputsize("rnwc0300Size.rnwc"));
