Requesting a UTS MATIP Screen Object

The XML to request a UTS MATIP screen object is as follows:

<ScreenUts Columns="80" Rows="24">
        <MatipClient HostName="yourhost" Addressing2Byte="false" ConcentratorHost="localhost" H1="yourH1" H2="yourH2" A1="yourA1" A2="yourA2" SID="yourSID" />
</ScreenUts>

Additional ScreenUts and MatipClient XML parameters are shown in the tables below. Except where noted, these parameters use the following syntax:

name="value"

where name is the name of a parameter and value is a valid value for that parameter. These tags should be placed within the object being defined. For example, to set the TransmitMode parameter, the first line of the XML shown above would be changed from

<ScreenUts Columns="80" Rows="24">
to
<ScreenUts Columns="80" Rows="24" TransmitMode="ALL">

The default values are shown in bold in the Value column or given in the Description column. If a parameter is not included in the XML, its default value is used automatically.

ScreenUts XML Parameters
Parameter Value Description
TransmitMode VAR Only unprotected data is transmitted.
ALL All data is transmitted.
CHAN Only changed data is transmitted.
DestructiveSpace True The character at the cursor location is deleted when you send a space character with SendKeys.
False Sending a space character with SendKeys moves the cursor to the right without deleting any characters.
UpperCaseOnly True Only uppercase characters are displayed in the presentation space. The letters that appear uppercase only are determined by the CaseLowBoundry and CaseHighBoundry. Any letters between the specified letters display only in uppercase.
False Both lowercase and uppercase characters are displayed.
CaseLowBoundry character The letter that indicates the beginning of the range of characters that should be converted to uppercase when UpperCaseOnly is True. For example, if CaseLowBoundry is b and CaseHighBoundry is y, and UpperCaseOnly is True, the letters b through y will be converted to uppercase, but any characters outside of that range (in this example, a and z) will appear in both lowercase and uppercase.

The default value is a.

CaseHighBoundry character The letter that indicates the end of the range of characters that should be converted to uppercase when UpperCaseOnly is True.

The default value is z.

Rows number The number of rows in the presentation space.

The default is 24 rows.

Columns number The number of columns in the presentation space.

The default is 80 columns.

MatipClient XML Parameters
Parameter Value Description
HostName name IP address or domain name of the MATIP host.

If you are using outbound opens (for example, the MATIP host initiates the connection to the SDK), then the HostAddress should be set to "*".

H1 hexaddr The hexadecimal (0x0-0xFF) addressing byte to use for this configuration.

The values for the H1, H2, A1, and A2 parameters are collectively a cluster address, which is called an ASCU address.

H2 hexaddr The hexadecimal (0x0-0xFF) addressing byte to use for this configuration.

The values for the H1, H2, A1, and A2 parameters are collectively a cluster address, which is called an ASCU address.

A1 hexaddr The hexadecimal (0x0-0xFF) addressing byte to use for this configuration.

The values for the H1, H2, A1, and A2 parameters are collectively a cluster address, which is called an ASCU address.

A2 hexaddr The hexadecimal (0x0-0xFF) addressing byte to use for this configuration.

The values for the H1, H2, A1, and A2 parameters are collectively a cluster address, which is called an ASCU address.

SID hexaddr A hexadecimal Station Identifier (for example, 0x51)
ConnectionStatusInterval seconds The number of seconds of inactivity (no data exchanged between the client and host) that should elapse before the client verifies whether or not the connection with the host still exists. This is also the number of seconds that will elapse between connection status queries if the value for ConnectionStatusRetries is greater than 1.

If ConnectionStatusRetries is 0 or blank, any value for ConnectionStatusInterval is ignored.

The default value is 0.
ConnectionStatusRetries number The number of consecutive unanswered connection status queries that should be made before the session is closed. A typical number of retries would be between 1 and 10.

If ConnectionStatusRetries is 0 or blank, the client will not make any connection status queries.

The default value is 0.
ConcentratorHost ipaddr IP address or domain name of MATIP concentrator.

The recommended value is localhost.

If you are bypassing the Concentrator, set this value to "".

ConcentratorPort number TCP port on which MATIP concentrator is listening for connections. The default value is 350.
SODelay milliseconds Time in milliseconds before MATIP Sign On (SO) packet is sent to the host after a TCP/IP connection is established.
Addressing2Byte True Use 2-byte addressing when connecting to MATIP concentrator or host.
False Use 4-byte addressing when connecting to MATIP concentrator or host.
LocalPort 0 Autoselects the Local Port.
integer Enter the port number to specify a local port to use.
HostPort 350 Sets the default host port.
integer Specifies a remote/host port to use.
CharEncoding IPARS Specifies that padded IPARS characters will be used.
ASCII Specifies that ASCII characters will be used.
EBCDIC Specifies that EBCDIC characters will be used.
HostToHost False Disables the host-to-host MATIP support (uses Terminal MATIP).
True Enables the host-to-host MATIP support.
SITA False Specifies the IATA host-to-host support (disables SITA).

This parameter is valid only when HostToHost is enabled.

True Enables SITA host-to-host support.
MultiFlow False Disables MultiFlow.
True Enables MultiFlow.

This parameter is valid only when HostToHost and SITA are both enabled.

FlowID flowID Address to use in HostToHost communications

This parameter is valid only when HostToHost, SITA, and MultiFlow are all enabled.

HostRejectCodes string The string contains a comma-separated list of values to be reported for the errors below in the order listed. Values may be omitted, in which case the default code is reported.

For example, HostRejectCodes="0x40,,65,,,0x42,67" results in the reject code table "0x40, 0x91,0x41, 0x93,0x94,0x42,0x43,0x97,0x98."

The following are the default Host Rejection Codes:

  • 0x90—No sessions are currently listening for opens

  • 0x91—None of the listening sessions matched the H1 and H2 of the request

  • 0x92—None of the listening sessions matched the connection type

  • 0x93—None of the listening sessions matched the ASCU

  • 0x94—None of the listening sessions matched the presentation type

  • 0x95—None of the listening sessions matched the encoding

  • 0x96—None of the listening sessions matched the requested hdr/mpx settings

  • 0x97—The request itself was invalid

  • 0x98—The listening session was marked Operator Disabled

OperatorDisable False The listen request, if used, functions normally. This is the default behavior.
True Disables a particular listen request, so that outbound opens of that particular MATIP address will be rejected with the last reject code in the HostRejectCodes table.
