InfoConnect for Unisys
Open a Session

You can open session document files that were created in previous sessions. This sample program uses the CreateControl() to create a session from a saved session document file. (For other ways to get terminal sessions, see Getting Terminal and View Objects.)

To create a session from a session document file

  1.   Create a session and save it as "gettingStarted" (for example, gettingStarted.rd3x) in the default folder (...\myDocuments\Micro Focus\InfoConnect).         
  2. In Visual Studio, create a new Console Application project and add references for the following InfoConnect assemblies. (Depending on your version of Visual Studio, these can be found either on the .NET tab or under Assemblies | Extensions.)
    Attachmate.Reflection.Framework
    Attachmate.Reflection.Emulation.IbmHosts
    Attachmate.Reflection.Emulation.OpenSystems
    Attachmate.Reflection

    Attachmate.Reflection.Emulation.UTS
    Attachmate.Reflection.Emulation.T27
  3. Replace all the code in the Program.cs file with the following code for the terminal you are using.

                //Start a visible instance of InfoConnect or get the instance running at the given channel name
                Application app = MyReflection.CreateApplication("myWorkspace", true);
    
                //Create a terminal from the session document file
                string sessionPath = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("USERPROFILE") + @"\Documents\Micro Focus\InfoConnect\gettingStarted.rd3x";
                IIbmTerminal terminal = (IIbmTerminal)app.CreateControl(sessionPath);
    
                //Make the session visible in the workspace
                IFrame frame = (IFrame)app.GetObject("Frame");
                frame.CreateView(terminal);
            }
