11 11 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration How-to configure the keyboard mapping? Keyboard Mapping In the 5250 configuration SCANCODE of the key to be mapped 520 Action TIP! -> In the configuration file 5250 actions ( AID, Function, Control, Cursor, Signal) are grouped by topic: [TN52_AID_KEYS] 5250 Functions (They generate transactions with the host) [TN52_CONTROL_KEYS] (They can -or cannot- generate host transactions) [TN52_CURSOR_KEYS] Cursor movements (They do not generate host transactions) On-line help

12 12 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration You need to: Identify the 'scancode‘ of the key or keystroke to be mapped to a 5250 action It is possible to map any keystroke to any 5250 action Keyboard Mapping TIP! -> Identify the scan code: In the “Keyboard Test” dialog on the PDA it is possible to check the scan code generated by any key. Configuration > Keyboard Test ‘To->5250’ / ‘To->3270’ Configuration The changes are done in the configuration file. Access it from installation page. On-line help

13 13 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration Keyboard Mapping Warning. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, please do not modify this section. [TN52_SIGNAL_KEYS] Specific AS400 diagnostic control actions Advanced configuration Other keys Mapping Configuration (5250 file) [TN52_KEY_MAP] Allow mapping from one key to another key (instead of 5250 actions). Example: Mapping characters that are not in the PDA keyboard. Press “Esc+5” to make a “-” (minus) TIP! -> Some examples One finger: In some keyboards it is needed to use both hands to enter F1. It is possible to avoid this by a customized keystroke mapping. F16 How-to enter F16?. This key does not exist in my PDA keyboard! Suggestion, map as: Control+D = F16 On-line help

Allow to scroll the visible part of the emulated screen in the display to view all the content. Configuration (5250 file) [TN52_EMULATION] DragDisplay = Yes Available features Cursor by tapping Move blinking cursor between input fields. Operation It allows to change the input cursor position with the stylus by pressing directly on the input field. Configuration (5250 file) [TN52_EMULATION] CursorByTap = Yes On-line help

16 16 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration With the touch screen, the stylus or the fingers, it is possible to perform actions Touch screen actions 5250 Functions at screen Send a function key to the AS400 Host by touching the screen. Using the stylus you can touch any "Fx“ text on the screen. (x= is the function number). i./e.: if the text reads “F5”, when touching over this text, emulator sends PF5 function to Host. Configuration (5250 file) [TN52_EMULATION] FunctionByTap = Yes Available features On-line help

17 17 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration With the touch screen, the stylus or the fingers, it is possible to perform actions Touch screen actions Available features Double Tap With a double tap on the screen, you can generate any keystroke, which also can be a function. Operation Touch two times the screen in the same place, then remove the stylus. Configuration (5250 file) [TN52_EMULATION] DoubleTap=00XX (scan code of the key) Example of use It is possible to configure the “double tap” to launch the virtual keyboard (SIP Panel) on the screen.

23 23 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration Read a barcode, then split or truncate it to fill one or some input fields Split the barcode CONFIGURATION (5250 file) Configure the action to perform with the barcode read. Configuration option [TN52_BARCODES] BcInField Options The 'S‘ setting SPLITS the barcodes exceeding the current input field width. That action allows to fill the following fields. By default, the configuration is 'T‘. This setting TRUNCATES the exceeding data and always fills only one field (the current one). Aide on-line

24 24 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration CONFIGURATION (5250 file) Configure the action to perform after barcode reading. Configuration option [TN52_BARCODES] PostAction Read a barcode, then send [ENTER] instead of [Field Exit] ENTER instead of FieldExit The FieldExit function performs a “Field Adjust“ then moves to the next field (if any). (That action performs an ENTER if the field is AUTO-ENTER). The ENTER function performs a “Field Adjust" then send screen data to Host (AID key). Aide on-line Warning Do not add suffixes to barcode! Use prefixes and suffixes only to add text.

28 28 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration Options to configure wait timeouts and simulate a dialog How-to avoid end of session? PDA c onfiguration Explanation: The XS Timeout message indicates that the AS400 host is not responding to emulator requests in the PDA. If the PDA was turned off, probably the AS400 has closed the session. At wake-up time it makes a transaction, but the AS400 has closed the session and do not responds. PDA CONFIGURATION (5250 file) [TN52_EMULATION] XSTimeOut It is possible to modify the response wait time (in seconds) to adapt it to slow systems. You can either increase it or set it to zero to make it infinite. [TN52_TELNET] DoTcpAlive = YES The PDA can perform a periodical “ping” to the host and simulate a dialog to keep the session alive. On-line help

29 29 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration There are options to configure timeouts How-to avoid end of session? AS400 Configuration Explanation: AS400 system is configured by default to dialog with continuous connected peripherals. It polls them periodically, and close the connection if the device is not responding immediately (as a sleeping PDAs turned off). HOST CONFIGURATION (AS400 specific) Modify the AS400 timeouts as shown in the following PDF, to adapt it to use portable terminals with WiFi. AS400 Timeout Configuration AS400 Timeout Configuration

30 30 WireLess TelNet 52 – Tutorial - Common cases of configuration Editing barcode reads Configuration (generic file) [BC_EDIT_X] On= TIP! -> What can you do? Process following read length Process following barcode type Filter to suppress or keep: Ex: (NNYYYYNNYYYN) Y=keep the char. N=Suppress the char. Add characters: Ex: (****013****) *=Keep the char NNN=Adds a char. On-line help Barcode reads can be modified by an edit processing before sending them to input fields. How does it work? 1. Evaluate processing conditions. 2. Filter the reading to keep or suppress characters. 3. Add characters.
