OnLine Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether Reflection is in remote mode or local mode.
Property OnLine As Boolean
Dim instance As ITerminal
Dim value As Boolean
instance.OnLine = value
value = instance.OnLine
bool OnLine {get; set;}

Property Value

The default value is true.
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 (that is, 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.
