We have a property that is split into Partition 0 - Main Partition 1 - Flat 1 Partition 2 - Flat 2
Currently each keypad arms and disarms the individual partitions.
I'm looking for the SIMPLEST way to be able to make this a single arm /disarm from any keypad.
Preferably add a flag so that we can go from single whole house arm to three separate partitions within the program ( rather than having to use a separate program to 'swap' over).
I think ive dont it in partition events but just dont believe it will work !

If I remember rightly dont you have to have a user code assigned to all the partitions to do that.

The Partition events menus is where this operation has to be done.
It requires a bespoke response for each arming event.
Chiu has given me some pointers but i have yet to program and test.
Basically each partition has its own dedicated keypad(s)
If you want that keypad to arm another partition from the key arm buttons then the partition events would handle this.

Its odd as the Control menu only has a SINGLE KEYPAD designated - so if you have a short cut key say F1 programmed then it would react to every F1 on every keypad...
Chiu is this correct and if it is then would it be possible to list the keypads in the control menu and have a different menu for each?

The control menu is for  keypads, phone and cytech app. We dont have individual control menu for each keypad
In the control menu responses you can check the keypad id in order to make different actions for each

Sorry can I check I have this correct....
You are saying that I can create a response that will only react on one (or more) selected keypad(s).
I can then add this response in the control menu.
I presume this is from the "set login partition no" command ?

You can have a response called by the control menu as follows
If KeypadId = 1 Then
    Pulse Output001(1) For 1
Else
    Output Output003(3) On
End If
eg control menu 1, 1 for On calls the above responseand if the keypad ID is 1 then Pulse output1, else turn on output 2
see the example file

HUM
So in the example given....    Go to any keypad and you will have the same menu format read out....

Go to keypad 1 (assumed to be partition 1)  and press 0; 1; 1 in the menu and output 1 pulsed  ( opens say a garage door)

Go to keypad 2 or greater (assumed to be another partition other than 1)  and press 0; 1; 1 in the menu and output 3 goes on ( opens say a gate permanently open)

So this may work but the practicality is a nonsense.   
Take a scenario where the menu has a proper labelling structure e.g. gate open. 
On keypad 1 it would open the garage door. 
On keypad 2 it would open the gate! 
If you had not put the Else command in then On keypad 2 nothing would happen !

I gave you an example of how you could determine which keypad is being used for the control menu. 

I do not know what exactly you need to do
If you want to have different menus for gate and door, just set up different control menus1 for gate 
  
2 for Door..etc

It is not possible to have a menu so that each keypad has its own separate menu

The point is....
If I am the customer then IT DOES NOT WORK !
Because.......
The SAME menu is used on every keypad regardless of what partition it is in !
ExampleKeypad 1 (partition 1) is used for the main houseKeypad 2 (partition 2) is used for a rented flat
I create a menu that has a command that (for example) opens the back gate to the house or the garage doors etc etc.... The menu is audible at every keypad..... It may be that Keypad 1 is set with the code to operate the garage door BUT the point is that the menu in Keypad 2 is STILL read out BUT DOES NOT OPERATE ANYTHING !
