Property Value

The default value is False.

If you will be entering composed characters in host screens, set this property to True.

Attachmate.Reflection.SecuredSettingException This exception is thrown when you try to modify a property that has been secured with the Permissions Manager or that can only be modified by an Administrator.
This indicator tells you the number of bytes remaining in the current field.

The number of remaining bytes (characters) in the current field of a host application depends on whether the typed characters use combiner characters (for example, Thai). If you use a character set that doesn't use combiner characters, the remaining bytes equal the number of visible spaces.

Some combiner characters occupy no space, such as those that modify a base character. However, they count toward the maximum number of bytes allowed in an input field. Therefore, the host input field can be full without appearing full.
