InfoConnect for Unisys
WeakDeviceControlString Property

Gets or sets the device control string state.
Property WeakDeviceControlString As Boolean
Dim instance As ITerminal
Dim value As Boolean
instance.WeakDeviceControlString = value
value = instance.WeakDeviceControlString
bool WeakDeviceControlString {get; set;}

Property Value

The default value is true.
When this property is set to true, a device control string can be terminated by any of the characters that interrupt escape sequences and control functions. These characters are CAN (decimal 24), SUB (decimal 26), and ESC (decimal 27). This is the same behavior as the terminals in the VT200 through VT400 series, except the VT320.

When this property is set to false, InfoConnect matches the behavior of the VT320 terminal, and a device control string can be terminated only by the string terminator character (decimal 156). Use this property if you need InfoConnect to behave like an actual VT320 terminal (for example, if you need to pass control characters as part of a sequence that would otherwise terminate the sequence).
