Autogroom the TracePlayer File
When this check box is selected (the default), the TracePlayer file used by Host Emulator is autogroomed after the recording is complete.
Caps Lock State
Specifies whether the Design Tool is in Caps Lock mode. The default is No. This state is not saved as part of a model or settings file.
Specifies the string that appears in the Design Tool title bar. This string is relevant only when the Help display mode is Status Bar (default). This string is also displayed on the taskbar when the Design Tool is running.
Select a predefined option from the list box, or enter up to 260 characters in the box. As you click on predefined options, shortcuts for these options are added to the box. The predefined options and their shortcuts are:
Shortcut Option &r "Verastream Host Integrator" &f Model file name (or "Untitled" if a model file is not open) &s Session type &t Transport &h Host name &d Date &c Connection status &v Assigned device name && Single ampersand &p Script debugging port
So, for example, if you set the Caption to &s - &t - &c, you might see "IBM 5250 Terminal - Telnet - Connected" in the Design Tool title bar or on the taskbar, assuming the Design Tool is running but not minimized. The default is &f - &r - &s.
Case Sensitive Search
Select this option to use case sensitive criteria when searching for tables and elements in both the Tables and Import Model Elements dialog boxes. By default searches are case insensitive.
Close Progress Window on Completion
The Host Integrator progress window displays information about the progress of navigation or event handling sequences. The progress window is displayed when a sequence takes longer than one-half second. You can force the progress window to stay open by changing this setting to No. The default is Yes.
If set to No, a login or logout process can stall when a dialog box requires user input. You must click Close so that the login or logout process can continue.
Command Line Switches (read-only)
Shows command line switches (also called command line parameters), if any, that were used to start the Design Tool.
Select this option if you want the Design Tool to display a confirmation dialog box before exiting.
Connect To Host on Open
Specifies whether you want the Design Tool to automatically connect to the host when you load a model file.
Convert Alternate Font Characters to Spaces
Specifies how to handle characters that are not part of the default character set. For example, VT line drawing characters in a character mode application are not part of the ANSI character set. If this setting is set to Yes, Host Integrator will translate all such characters to spaces when reading them from the screen buffer. The default is No, which means that Host Integrator will read and store the numerically equivalent ANSI character instead.
Display small icons in the Navigator dialog (read-only)
Reflects the Host Integrator Navigator utility option to display small icons instead of the default large icons.
Don't Show Discard Recording Dialog Box
Specifies whether or not to display the Discard Recording dialog box each time a record trace is deleted. The default is No.
Don't Show the Hidden Variable in Descriptor Security Warning Dialog Box
Select Do not display the message again to hide the security warning regarding the display of hidden variable values as plain text within descriptor files. To secure sensitive information, it is best practice to use the Administrative Console to enter the variable values.
Don't Show Save Entity Dialog Box
Specifies whether or not to display the Apply Changes dialog box each time an entity is modified. The default is No.
Execute Host Login Sequence on Host Connect
Specifies whether the Design Tool will execute a login command list when your model connects to a host.
You can also enable this setting from the General tab of the Preferences Setup dialog box by selecting the Execute login commands check box. The default is No.
This option also navigates to the home entity and initiates associated event handlers.
Execute Host Logout Sequence on Host Disconnect
Specifies whether to execute a logout command list when your model disconnects from a host.
You can also enable this setting from the General tab of the Preferences Setup dialog box by selecting the Execute logout commands check box. The default is No.
Font Character Set
Specifies the character set that Host Integrator uses for its user interface. The character set values are:
- Ansi (default)
- Chinese Big5
- East European
Max Trace File Length (KB)
Specifies the maximum size for an internal trace file (.cfgtrc), in kilobytes. The range of values is from 10 to 65,535 KB. The default is 10,000 KB.
Maximum Number of Consecutive Session View Partial Updates Allowed
Specifies the maximum number of partial screen updates that will be accepted by a Host Integrator Server from a character mode host. Partial updates are commonly sent via a datastream of characters on character mode hosts unlike block mode hosts, which often transmit one screen's worth of data at a time. The default is 5.
Maximum Size (KB) for Session View Buffered Data
Specifies the maximum limit of memory that is used when a Host Integrator Server stores host data for the Session Monitor. The default is 1,024 KB.
When a Host Integrator Server receives data from a host, it buffers that data until it can be used by the Session Monitor. During a host session, the Session Monitor requests the data from the Host Integrator Server and the buffered data is sent. Setting a maximum limit of memory on the Host Integrator Server creates a type of load balancing between the server and the Session Monitor that enables optimum performance. Once this memory limit is exceeded, the memory is deleted and the following log message appears in the Session Server log:
Since the buffer size of the maximum session view exceeded its limit, one or more session view displays were lost.
Maximum Size for Debug Trace Output File
Specifies the maximum size for debug trace output files. The range of values is from 0 to 1024 MB. If you specify 0, no size limit is enforced.
Maximum Size Design Tool Model Debug Message Store
Specifies the maximum size for the model debug messages store. The range of values is from 1 to 1000 MB. The default is 128.
Mouse Last-Clicked Column
Specifies the column number where the mouse was located the last time the left button was clicked.
Mouse Last-Clicked Row
Specifies the row number where the mouse was located the last time the left button was clicked.
Specifies whether Host Integrator is in Num Lock mode. The Design Tool does not change the state of Num Lock, although the model can affect the Num Lock setting if the state of Num Lock is changed as part of building or loading a model. This state is not saved as part of a model or settings file.

Returns the full path and filename (including the drive letter) for the Host Integrator Design Tool executable file.
Path to Executable (read-only)
Returns the full path (including the drive letter) for the Host Integrator Design Tool executable file.
Pause Playback Trace on EOR
Specifies what happens when an end-of-record character is encountered during playback of a trace file. When set to Yes (default), the playback pauses at the end of each record. When set to No, the playback runs to completion without pausing.
Procedure Navigates to Home Entity When an Error Occurs
Specifies whether or not a procedure automatically traverses to the home entity when an error occurs. The default is Yes.
Read Hidden Text
Specifies whether or not the Design Tool should be able to recognize hidden text on the terminal screen.
Record Initial Synchronization Commands
Specifies whether the recorder (used in manual recording and by character mode applications) starts each recording session with synchronization commands. If this setting is enabled, these commands will be recorded at the start of each generated operation in character mode and in each manually recorded command list or operation. The default is Yes.
Specifies whether or not the command list recorder is on.
Specifies whether you want to automatically save your model when you exit the Design Tool.

Show Progress Details
The Host Integrator progress window displays information about the progress of navigation or event handling sequences. The progress window is displayed when a sequence takes longer than one-half second and will remain open after completion if an error occurs. By default, this progress window shows a short progress statement. When Show Progress Details is set to Yes, the details of the sequence are also displayed. If Show Progress Details is set to Yes, you can also force the progress window to stay open by using the setting Close Progress Window on Completion.
Startup Working Directory (read-only)
