RE: how to read and use .StatusBar = ,WaitForString ")"...?


One if the issues with an emulator is waiting for a response from the host.  I often use something like...


   Do Until (oScreen.WaitForCursor(3, 17))
where row 3, column 17 is the cursor rest position for the oScreen object. I make sure that the cursor is MOVED from that position before issuing the oScreen.SendKeys command.

I never use the statusbar, so I cannot comment directly on your question.


glassesJust traded in my old subtlety...
for a NUANCE!tongue

RE: how to read and use .StatusBar = ,WaitForString ")"...?

"[6;59f", "[4;13f",  anyone know its meaning?
