Configure Terminal Settings Dialog Box (UTS)

From this dialog box, you can set input and display options for your UTS terminal.


Display / Device type

Specify the terminal type to emulate.

Terminal Screen


The number of pages to use. A page is a data buffer from the host that consists of a specific number of columns and rows. The host application determines how many pages it sends to your desktop. If you are not sure how many pages to specify here, contact your host administrator.


The number of rows per page.


The number of columns per page.

Capture area

SOE To Cursor - Capture only the data from the last start-of-entry (SOE) character to the cursor (the remaining data is not captured).

If you're using scroll-mode applications in Demand and select SOE To Cursor, set the block factor on the host to 1.

Full Page - Capture the entire page (useful for data that appears in forms).

New Host Data - Capture each new buffer received from the host (this is useful for data that scrolls).

If you click New Host Data, set the block factor to the number of rows in the session. (If you lose data, set the block factor to a lower number and try again until you get satisfactory results.)

To specify the block factor, transmit the following command:

@@ blck x

where x is the number to use.

For additional information, contact your host administrator.

Beeps on system

Sets the maximum number of beeps to sound when the host sends a message and Repeat Alarm is enabled (in the Attributes section of this dialog box).

A value of 0 turns off the beep, and 99 causes the session to beep until you issue a MessageWait command. (For example, if you're using the PEPWIN.EKM keyboard map, you would press CTRL+M to turn off the beep.)

Keyboard History

Saved Inputs

Enter the number of commands you want to have saves so that you can recall them later.

Select this option to save any changes the host sends to the Control Page or Extended Control Page during a session. When you next open the session, the latest changes from the host will remain in effect for the new session.

If you clear this option, the host changes will not be saved, and the Control Page or Extended Control Page will reflect the settings it had before the host changed them.

Upper case only

Display only uppercase characters in the session window.

Reverse video status line

Reverse the foreground and background colors of the status line.

NOTE:This option is enabled only if the session is configured to emulate a UTS 20 or UTS 40 terminal.


Screen alarm

Select this option to sound a beep whenever the cursor moves to the eighth position before the end of the row and when the cursor reaches any position on the last row.
