InfoConnect for Unisys
MappedNumLockPreservesNumLock Property (ITerminal)


Gets or sets how InfoConnect responds to a NUM LOCK key press on the PC when it is mapped to emulate the action of a terminal key.
Syntax
'Declaration
 
Property MappedNumLockPreservesNumLock As Boolean
'Usage
 
Dim instance As ITerminal
Dim value As Boolean
 
instance.MappedNumLockPreservesNumLock = value
 
value = instance.MappedNumLockPreservesNumLock
bool MappedNumLockPreservesNumLock {get; set;}

Property Value

The default value is true.
Remarks
In default VT emulations, the NUM LOCK key is mapped to PF1; the Num Lock state has no effect on the behavior of the numeric keypad or other keys.

When this property is true, pressing the NUM LOCK key sends the mapped keystroke to the host and also preserves the current Num Lock state of the PC keyboard. This matches the behavior of all InfoConnect sessions prior to version 9.0.

When this property is false, pressing the NUM LOCK key sends the mapped keystroke to the host and turns the PC Num Lock state on or off. (The Num Lock indicater light also turns on or off each time you press the NUM LOCK key.)

On Windows 2000 systems with non-USB keyboards, pressing the mapped NUM LOCK key repeatedly may result in a locked keyboard. Changing this property to false fixes this problem.
