5250 Status Line (setting)

You can configure Host Integrator to display any of three different status lines at the bottom of the Terminal window when you're connected to an AS/400:


3488 Status Line The 3488 status line uses symbols to represent various conditions and is based on the status line you see on newer 5250 terminals from IBM.
5250 Status Line This status line uses character pairs to represent various conditions—the characters are always shown but appear in inverse video when the condition is true. For example, when the system is not available, the letters SA appear in regular video, but when the system is available, the letters appear in inverse video.
Debug Status Line If you contact technical support, you may be asked to use the Debug Status Line to help diagnose the problem. The Debug Status Line is of use to users with an intimate knowledge of the 5250 datastream.


The default is 3488 Status Line.
