Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether Reflection is in remote mode or local mode.

In remote mode (that is, when the Online property is set to True), Reflection transmits each character typed at the keyboard out the datacomm port. As characters are received back from the host they are displayed on the screen. If there is no connection, characters are not echoed.

In local mode (when Online is set to False), Reflection immediately displays what is typed on the screen, without attempting to send it out the datacomm port. Data received from the host is discarded.


The default value is True.
