The following example shows how to create a custom keyboard map file and set up a session document file to use this keyboard map. This keyboard map assigns the Ctrl+E key combination to the EraseEOF Send Key. The session is saved as a regular session file so you can see the additional work you need to perform to deploy it (as opposed to saving it as a compound session file).
To walk through the process for creating and deploying a compound session file, see Setting up a Simple Deployment in The Getting Started with Reflection Desktop Deployment Quick Start Guide.
First, create and save the session.
Create a session
Open Reflection on your workstation.
In the Create New Document dialog box, under, choose a type of session (for our example, we will choose 3270 terminal) and click .
In the Create New Terminal Document dialog box, in thebox, enter the host name (for example, IBM390 or 10.9.1.151).
From the Reflection Quick Access toolbar, click the Save button and save the session as mySession.rd3x.
This file is saved in the My Documents\Micro Focus\Reflection folder.
Then configure the session with a keyboard map.
