Locked terminal (TN3270 in Extra 6.5) due time out

Locked terminal (TN3270 in Extra 6.5) due time out

Hello Gentleman,

Is it possible to insert a Function that checks if a terminal is locked (either by time out or other reasons) via OIA?

RE: Locked terminal (TN3270 in Extra 6.5) due time out

WaitForCursor at the Screen Rest coordinates in a loop with a timer of some length. If the wait exceeds your timer, then chances are, the terminal is locked for some reason.
