Return value

  • true if the operation succeeded

  • false otherwise

Parameter Description
hWeb Valid handle to a Web connection created by WebTcpipConnect and set to Telnet mode using WebTcpipSetTelnetMode.
sStatusName Identifies the status of the value that is to be verified. The only supported status is "Keyboard Locked".
sVerify String value that the status value should be compared against. Valid strings are "true" and "false".

By default the retrieved content has to be equal with the compared sVerify string, case-insensitively (optional). Comparison options are:

  • TELNET_FLAG_EQUAL: Comparison is made against both whole strings. (default)

  • TELNET_FLAG_CASE_SENSITIVE: Perform comparison case-sensitively.

  • TELNET_FLAG_IS_DIFFERENT: Negates the logical comparison.

  • TELNET_FLAG_IGNORE_WHITE_SPACE: All whitespaces in both compared strings are cut before comparison is performed.

  • TELNET_FLAG_CONTAINS: Compared string must occur within the retrieved content.

  • TELNET_FLAG_FROM_LEFT: The retrieved content only has to begin with the compared string.

  • TELNET_FLAG_TRIM_LEFT: Leading blanks are trimmed from retrieved content before comparison.

  • TELNET_FLAG_TRIM_RIGHT: Trailing blanks are trimmed from retrieved content before comparison.

  • TELNET_FLAG_TRIM_BOTH: Rendered text is trimmed from both sides before comparison.

  • TELNET_FLAG_FROM_RIGHT: Comparison is made from the right of the retrieved content.

nSeverity Optional: Severity of the error that is raised if the verification fails. Can be one of the following values:
  • SEVERITY_SUCCESS: Success; no error (numerical value: 0)
  • SEVERITY_INFORMATIONAL: Informational; no error (numerical value: 1)
  • SEVERITY_WARNING: Warning; no error (numerical value: 2)
  • SEVERITY_ERROR: (Default) Error; simulation continues (numerical value: 3)
  • SEVERITY_TRANS_EXIT: Error; the active transaction is aborted (numerical value: 4)
  • SEVERITY_PROCESS_EXIT: Error; the simulation is aborted (numerical value: 5)
nTextLength Defines how many characters of sVerify are taken for comparison with sVerify (optional). If omitted or 0, the length of sVerify is taken.
sRecv Optional string variable where the current status value is placed (optional).
