Network Aware Features
Users have the ability to check network availability prior to sending data to the host. This manages exception scenarios when a user may roam out of RF coverage and ensure network availability prior to establishing a connection, sending data or if the device is resuming from a suspended state.
- Minimizes user interaction during connection / re-connection attempts
- Maximizes user productivity
Configurable KeyBar & Context Menus
You can customize a set of soft buttons to control and invoke any host specific keys or application operation. Users can select from a set of pre-defined KeyBar templates.
A Keybar can also be made to appear as a Context Menu, which would appear when you tap and hold the stylus on the terminal display screen.
- Can make any host key or application operation available from a KeyBar soft button
- Customize KeyBar buttons to associated with proprietary VT escape sequences
Meta keys are special keys that you can configure to act much like the state keys "Shift", "Alt" and "Ctrl" on a regular keyboard. They are used together with other keys to activate special actions and are especially helpful on devices with limited number of physical keys.
- More key remapping options on devices with limited keys
- Allows configuration of less key presses to achieve an action
Users may auto-connect on multiple host sessions when our application is launched. This can simply be enabled via session specific checkbox configuration.
- liminates intermediate manual step
- Minimizes retraining. Gives user direct access to familiar host application screen
Pre-recorded macros can be configured to launch automatically when a session is started and log into the host system. Users can configure their devices to go from "cold boot" to a host application screen without a single stylus tap.
- Automates manual steps to enhance device usability
A HotSpot is an invisible field on the terminal screen where a user can tap with a stylus to execute a function. A Hotspot allows a user to interact with the host application with minimal needs for the special keypads. Instead the user can directly tap on the text in the terminal display to invoke the desired operation. All our products support HotSpots for 3270, 5250 and VT host sessions.
- Leverages the "touch screen" interface of Windows CE to allow enhanced usability
- Minimizes need for host specific keys
Dynamic Scroll and Cursor modes
Multiple modes are available to support automatic scrolling, so that the cursor / input field is visible. You can also lock a screen display to a specific row and column.
- Automatic scrolling to current cursor location enhances user productivity and usability
- Lock row / column position of display; backward compatibility with pre-existing applications
All our terminal emulations support proprietary extensions used by legacy hardware terminal vendors. These include Intermec Extended Commands, Symbol IBM PRN, Telxon VT extensions and LXE block mode. This allows you to easily upgrade customers to newer terminals running our TE without having to change their host applications.
- Seamless migration from legacy DOS / proprietary terminals to Windows CE / Pocket PC terminals
Screen Panning allows an additional row and column on the display by providing an alternative to horizontal and vertical scroll bars.
