Playing Back Host Datastream Traces

With the Design Tool's trace feature, you can record data transmissions to and from the host. Although trace is intended primarily for diagnostic purposes, you can use the playback feature to redisplay the host's output to your screen. Playback does not redisplay the user's input.

To play back a trace, first map a keystroke to the command .PlayNextTraceRecord. Select the trace to play back by double-clicking it, or you can enter a full path and file name in the File name box. If you use Pause on EOR to pause at the end of each record, you can use the mapped key to step through a trace.
