|Specify which keys can be used in numeric fields.
|Only number keys and certain symbol keys (such as + and -).
|Number keys, shifted number keys (producing symbols such as @ and #), and uppercase letters (A-Z).
|Enable word wrap
|When selected, text is wrapped to the next available field when entered text is too long to fit into the text entry field.
|Enable type ahead
|When selected, the characters that you type in the terminal window are buffered, allowing you to keep typing after you send data to the host. The following 3270 functions are processed immediately and are not buffered, even when Enable Type Ahead is selected:
- Cursor Select
- Pan Left
- Pan Right
- Scroll up
Select the way you want keyboard errors to be handled.
|No auto reset when a keyboard error occurs
|Before you can resume data entry, you must press Reset to clear the error message.
|Auto reset when a keyboard error occurs
|The next key you press clears the error and attempts to execute the keystroke as follows:
|The cursor is in a valid input field and the key is a data key
|The data is entered there if it is valid data for that field (for example, a numeric character in an input field that only accepts numbers). Otherwise, the cursor is moved to the next valid input field, and if the data is valid for that field, it is entered there.
|The cursor is in a valid input field and the key is a function key
|The key operation is executed. Otherwise, the cursor is moved to the next valid input field, and the key is ignored.
|The current screen contains no valid input fields
|An error message appears with each keystroke you press, and no keystrokes are executed.
|Auto reset without error message
|You don't need to press Reset to clear a keyboard error. No error is reported and the next key you press attempts to execute the keystroke as follows:
|If the cursor
|Is in a valid input field
|The key is ignored. This is true for both data keys and function keys.
|Is not in a valid input field and the key is a data key
|The cursor is moved to the next valid input field, and if the data is valid for that field, it is entered there.
|Is not in a valid input field and the key is a function key
|The cursor is moved to the next valid input field, and the key is ignored.
|Use this value with caution, because it prevents notification of keyboard errors.
|Mouse cursor shape
|Select whether to display the mouse cursor as an arrow, an i-beam, or a rectangle.
|Dragging the mouse across an area selects only the text within that area. When this option is cleared (unchecked), the selection wraps to line ends.
|Support double-byte character set
|Select to use Asian languages such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean in your terminal session.
