Attachmate Reflections: Set View for an Open Session

Attachmate Reflections: Set View for an Open Session

Attachmate Reflections: Set View for an Open Session

(OP)
I am working in MS Excel and I want to interact with an Attachmate Reflections session. The code below initates the sessions perfectly; however, how do you work in a session that is already opened? My issues arises at: Set View = Frame.CreateView(Terminal)

If the application is not running, this works perfectly; but how do you work with a session/terminal/application that is already active?

CODE --> VBA

Public Sub DealWithReflections()
    Dim App As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject
    Dim Terminal As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Emulation_IbmHosts.IbmTerminal
    Dim Frame As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects.Frame
    Dim View As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects.View
    Dim MyScreen As Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Emulation_IbmHosts.IbmScreen
    
    ' SavedSpace_PathWay is the pathway to the Attachmate Reflections .rd3x file

    On Error Resume Next
    Set App = GetObject(, "Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject")
    
    On Error GoTo 0
    If (App Is Nothing) Then
        Set App = CreateObject("Attachmate_Reflection_Objects_Framework.ApplicationObject")

        If (App Is Nothing) Then
            MsgBox "Unable to create object of Reflection system. The macro execution is interrupted."
            Exit Sub
        Else
            Set Terminal = App.CreateControl(SavedSpace_PathWay)
        End If
    Else
        Set Terminal = App.CreateControl(SavedSpace_PathWay)
    End If
    
    Set Frame = App.GetObject("Frame")
    Frame.Visible = True
    AppActivate Frame.Name
  
    On Error Resume Next

    Set View = Frame.CreateView(Terminal)
    On Error GoTo 0
    Set MyScreen = Terminal.screen
    MyScreen.SendControlKeySync (ControlKeyCode_Home)
        
    With MyScreen
        [...]
    End With

End Sub
