Data type




Most of the keys on the keyboard have an associated ASCII character. Several keys, however, perform functions for which there is no character defined in the ASCII standard—for example, home up, clear display, and back tab. Certain HP 3000 host programs, such as HP Slate, need to be informed when you press one of these non-ASCII keys. Setting TransmitFunctions to True provides a way for these keystrokes to be transmitted to the host.

When TransmitFunctions is set to True and Reflection is not in block mode, pressing one of these keys transmits the associated escape sequence to the host. Most software that requires this feature can automatically send the escape sequences to toggle it on and off.


The default value is False (except in VT emulation mode).
