AS/400 Display Types


Emulating Color and Monochrome Displays

The Terminal Color configuration element lets you emulate either a color or monochrome display.

If you emulate a monochrome display, Webulator/400 will display all text in a single color and display high intensity characters as bold. The monochrome display configuration requires an HTML 2.0 compliant browser to properly view Webulator/400 screens. You can optionally define the text color by configuring the Monochrome Text Color. Please note that if you do this you will require a browser that supports extensions to HTML 2.0.

If you emulate a color display, Webulator/400 will use the colors defined in the 5250 Data Description Specifications (DDS). While this is more visually appealing, it does require a browser that supports extensions to HTML 3.0. You can optionally choose to define one or all of the colors by configuring the Screen Text Colors.

Controlling the AS/400 Terminal Size

The Terminal Size configuration element lets you control the maximum width and height of the emulated display. This element allows you to one of the following terminals:

Virtual Terminal Device CCSID

Data originating from an application is in the Virtual Terminal's Device CCSID. It then gets sent to the Webulator/400 which is running under the Server User Profile CCSID. If these two CCSIDS are not the same, some characters may get changed.

The Virtual Terminal Device CCSID value instructs Webulator/400 to perform an extra translation step from the Device's CCSID to the Server User Profile CCSID before sending the screen to the browser.

Virtual Terminal Job CCSID

Data received from the browser gets converted to the Server User Profile's CCSID. It must then be sent to the application in the interactive job's CCSID. If these two CCSIDS are not the same, some characters may get changed.

The Virtual Terminal Job CCSID value instructs Webulator/400 to perform an extra translation step from the Server User Profile CCSID to the interactive job's CCSID before sending input data to the application.
