With a monitor that also meets the standard, the 1483 meets ISO 9241 Part 3 
requirements. 

This manual describes the 1483, identifies controls and operating procedures, and 
presents diagnostic and maintenance procedures that you can perform. The manual 
also introduces you to the 1483’s data entry and editing procedures. 

As part of a system configuration, the 1483 can transmit and receive data from a central 
processor unit (CPU) via the attaching controller. You enter or change information on a 
keyboard that resembles a typewriter. Entered data is simultaneously displayed as 
alphanumeric characters and symbols on the screen. You can use Function keys to transmit 
entered data to the CPU or to recall data from the CPU to the screen. The unit can be 
configured for up to four screen sizes. 

Hardware within the display station processes data during transmit and receive operations. 
Attachment of a coax printer via the controller or an optional local screen printer enables 
you to generate hard copy of all data displayed on the screen.

Chapter 3. Setup Menus, Controls, 

and Indicators 


This chapter describes the display controls, keyboard controls, and display indicators on 
the 1483 and its attached keyboard. 


Display Controls 


Refer to the installation booklet that comes with your Display element for an illustration 
of the locations of the Brightness, Contrast, and other controls. Any controls not on the 
display station are regulated from the setup menus and are described in the sections on 
Online and Offline Setup mode. 


Keyboard Operation Modes 


You can select either of two keyboard operation modes, Emulation mode or Native mode. 
The default setting is to emulate an IBM 3278 88-key keyboard. You can change the 
keyboard operation mode by changing the keyboard type on the Offline Keyboard menu 
(Figure 3-6 on Page 3-12). 

With Native mode selections. Keyboard Definition mode is supported. 


Emulation Mode 


Emulation mode can be used with a 122-key or a 104-key keyboard. Emulation mode 
causes the display station to provide to the controller converted keyboard scan codes that 
allow the attached keyboard to emulate a standard IBM 3278 88-key keyboard or an 
IBM 3278 88-key keyboard with a PF pad. In Emulation mode, some keys on the 122- 
key keyboard are not functional. The controller to which the display station is attached 
must be configured to support Emulation mode.

Setup Menus, Controls, and Indicators 


Native Mode 


Native mode causes the display station to provide to the attached controller unconverted 
keyboard scan codes which are defined by the controller depending on how it is configured. 
Native mode is available on the 102/103-key, 104-key, and 122-key keyboards. In 
Native mode, all 122-key keyboard functions are available. Native mode also allows the 
use of Keyboard Definition mode on the 122-key keyboard. To use Native mode, you 
must be connected to one of the following controllers: 

• MTX/MTC 1174 Network Controller 

• Memorex Telex 1274 Control Unit at firmware release level 11.0 or higher 

• IBM 3174 Control Unit 

• IBM 3274 Control Unit at configuration support D microcode release level 63.0 or 
higher. 

To use Native mode with a 102/103-key keyboard, you must be connected to one of the 
following controllers: 

• MTX/MTC 1174 Network Controller 

• Memorex Telex 1274 Control Unit at firmware release 16.0 or higher (if the 1274 
supports Multiple Logic Sessions, firmware release 53.0 or higher) 

• Memorex Telex 1374 Control Unit 

• IBM 3174 Control Unit 

• IBM 3274 Control Unit at configuration support D microcode release level 65.0 with 
RPQ# 760825. 

The control unit to which the 1483 is attached also must be configured to support Native 
mode. 


Keyboard Definition Mode 


In Native mode, the 1483 supports Keyboard Definition mode. Keyboard Definition mode 
enables you to modify the keyboard layout by using the control unit’s Keyboard Definition 
Utility. The attached control unit must be configured properly to support this feature.

Program Setup Strings for Prints 


You can specify print attributes for any supported printer by setting the power-on 
sequence. The programmed power-on sequence overrides the printer’s resident 
power-on sequence when the printer is powered on or the display station goes online. 
For screen printing, the programmable setup string is appended to the normal printer 
initialization string before each print job. For host addressable printing, options set on 
the Online Printer menu override the programmable setup strings for all printers except 
the Plain printer. 

Note: Only the following commands are sent to the Plain printer: 

• Line feed 

• Form feed 

• Carriage return 

• Backspace 

• Spaces for horizontal tabs 

When you set a power-on sequence, the printer prints only in the font and style 
specified by the power-on sequence. For example, if you set the power-on sequence for 
Courier 10-point, bold, italic, everything the printer prints is in Courier 10-point, bold, 
italic. 

To set the power-on sequence, highlight Program Setup Strings for Prints and 
press the Enter key. The Programmable Setup Strings for Prints screen is displayed 
(Figure 3-8 on Page 3-18). 

Use the Up and Down Arrow keys to highlight a position, then use the Left and Right

Host Addressable Print 


The host addressable print feature enables the host to send print requests to the 1483’s 
attached printer. LU2 (screen) prints are always formatted by the display according to 
the printer menu selections. 

To enable or disable host addressable print, highlight Host Addressable Print and press 
the Enter key to toggle between Yes (the default) and No. Host addressable print cannot 
be enabled if an Emulate 88-key keyboard option is selected on the Offline Keyboard 
menu (Figure 3-6 on Page 3-12), or if COAX is selected as the Printer on the Offline 
Printer menu. 

Controllers that support host addressable print are the MTX/MTC 1174 Network 
Controller, Release 7.0 and higher, and the Memorex Telex 1374 Control Unit, Release 
6.0 and higher. 

Note: The host addressable print feature supports LU1 SCS commands. 

If host addressable print is enabled, the Adjusting Line Feed and Adjusting Form 
Feed options are displayed. 

Printer Format Control 


The printer format control feature enables the user to specify whether the formatting of 
LU 1 or LU3 will be handled by the display. 


3-18 


701344-003 











Setup Menus, Controls, and Indicators 


If you select System, then formatting of LU1 orLU3 will not be handled by the display. 
In addition, CPI/LPI menu information will not be used to initialize the printer, and there 
will not be automatic form feed or new line performed by the display. 

If you select Terminal, the default, the data for LU1 and LU3 prints will be handled by 
printer menu selections. 

Adjusting Line Feed 

You can configure the printer to suppress an automatic line feed by selecting one of the 
following options: 

Suppress automatic line feed when: 


Note: In the following options, CR means carriage return, FF means form feed, and 
NL means new line. 

• CR at maximum print position + 1 - If you select Yes for this option, when the 
printer reaches the maximum line position + 1 (the end of the print line), the carriage 
returns to the beginning of the line without a line feed. The next printed characters 
will overwrite the current line of printed characters. 

If you select No (the default) for this option, when the printer reaches the end of the 
line, the carnage returns to the beginning of the line and drops down one line. 

• FF at print end - If you select Yes for this option, the printer does not execute a line 
feed after a form feed. 

If you select No (the default) for this option, the printer executes a line feed after a 
form feed. Characters printed on the new page begin on the second line. 

• NL at maximum print position + 1 - If you select Yes for this option, the printer 
does not execute a line feed if there is a new line command at the maximum print 
position + 1 (the end of the print line). The printer begins printing on the next line. 

If you select No (the default) for this option, when the printer reaches the end of the 
line, it executes two line feeds. 

Adjusting Form Feed 

You can configure the printer to adjust the form feed by selecting one of the following 
options: 


701344-003 


3-19 





Setup Menus, Controls, and Indicators 


FF ignored when not in first print position 


If you select Yes for this option, a form feed character in the first position or next to the 
maximum print position is executed while form feed commands in any other positions 
are printed as blank characters and are otherwise ignored. 

If you select No (the default) for this option, all form feed commands are executed. 

FF takes position if followed by data 


If you select Yes for this option, if the form feed character is not at the end of the print 
data, a form feed is executed and a blank character is printed in the first position on the 
next page. Subsequent printing starts in the second position on the new page. 

If you select No (the default) for this option, the form feed character is not printed as a 
blank character and subsequent printing starts in the first position on the new page. 

FF at end of print 


If you select Yes for this option, the printer ejects the last printed page and subsequent 
printing begins on the new page. 

If you select No (the default) for this option, the last page is not ejected and a line feed is 
executed. Subsequent printing begins on the new line of the current page. 

Transparent 


Note: Check with your system manager before changing this option. 

If Transparent is set to Coax (3287 emulation), data included in an SCS Transparent 
Mode command (35H) is printed in the LU1 environment as follows: 

• Valid EBCDIC characters are translated and printed normally. 

• Invalid EBCDIC characters (SNA character string [SCS] commands) are printed as 
hyphens. 

If Transparent is set to ASCII, all data included in the command is sent through to the 
printer untranslated. The following setup values are not sent to the printer during 
initialization: 

• Chars/Inch 

• Lines/Inch 

• Quality 

To set the Transparent option, highlight Transparent on the Offline Printer menu, then 
press the Enter key to toggle between Coax (the default) and ASCII.

You can choose between English (the default), Fran^ais, Deutsch, Espanol, and Italiano 
for the language on the setup menus. 

To change the current setting, highlight Setup Language and press the Enter key to 
cycle through the available settings. As each choice is selected, the menu changes to that 
language and all menus continue to be displayed in that language until changed again. 

Dim Timer 


The Dim Timer controls when the Auto Screen Cutoff function takes effect. When this 
function is set, the screen blanks in a specified number of minutes if the display station 
does not receive data from the keyboard or a host system. The Dim Style section provides 
information for which of the two methods of screen blanking is active. 

To enable this function, highlight Dim Timer and press the Enter key to cycle through 
Off (no dim), 5,10,15,. . ., 55, 60. The default is 10 minutes. 

Note: The Auto Screen Cutoff function does not work while the display station is in 
Setup mode.

Setup Menus, Controls, and Indicators 


Dim Style 


When Status Row Only is selected and the display has been inactive for the amount of 
time set in the Dim Timer, the screen blanks, and only the operator status row and cursor 
are displayed. The 8 symbol is displayed on the operator status row. Press the space bar 
to restore the screen without adding characters. Also, if the host initiates a write message, 
the screen is restored. 

When Monitor Off is selected and the display has been inactive for the amount of 
time set in the Dim Timer, the entire monitor screen goes black. For TCO-compatible 
monitors, this is Standby Mode which is a Power Saver feature. A keystroke or host 
write restores the screen in under three seconds. For non-TCO compatible monitors, 
Status Row Only must be selected. 

Note: If Electronic Keylock has been activated in the Offline menu by inserting a 
password other than Off, Auto Screen cutoff will activate Electronic Keylock. 
A keystroke restores the screen and then the Electronic Keylock password must 
be entered to allow use of the display. 

Power Down 


When turned on, the Power Down timer option cuts power to the monitor if it is plugged 
into the back of the Logic element. The Power Down takes effect in the specified number 
of minutes after the screen is blanked by the Auto Screen Cutoff function (Dim Timer 
option). The default setting is 30 minutes. 

For example, if the Dim Timer is set for 10 minutes and the Power Down timer is set for 
30 minutes, the screen will blank after 10 minutes and & will be displayed on the operator 
status row. After 30 additional minutes, the power to the monitor will be cut off. To 
return power and to restore the screen, press the space bar. If the host initiates a write 
message, power is returned, and the screen is restored. 

Note: Because the monitor may require warm-up time, restoration of the screen may 
not be immediate. 

Note: The Power Down function does not work while the display station is in Setup 
mode. 

Light Pen Clicker 


To turn the light pen clicker on or off, highlight Light Pen Click and press the Enter key 
to toggle the function to On (default) or Off. 

Coax Indicator 


When this feature is turned on, a filled circle ( • )is displayed in position 69 of the status 
row to indicate an active coax line when the display station is online. An open circle 
( O ) indicates no coax activity and a blinking circle indicates a very slow poll cycle 
indicative of a coax line being disconnected then reconnected. If the display station 
displays a blinking circle, power down the display for at least 10 seconds before turning 
the power on to reestablish communication. The Coax indicator overrides other status 
line information in position 69 because it is normally used as a diagnostic feature.

To select an Auto Skip mode, highlight Auto Skip Mode and press the Enter key to cycle 
through the choices Screen Print (the default), Host Addressable Print, and All Prints. 

Auto Skip 


You can configure the display’s local printer to advance a selected number of lines 
after it performs a print (the kind of print effected by Auto Skip depends on the Auto 
Skip Mode selection as described above). To set up or change the lines to be advanced, 
highlight Auto Skip and press the Enter key. The selection area for the auto skip 
function is highlighted. Use numeric keys to enter a new value. Allowable values are 
000 - 199. The number you enter should be the number of lines you want the local 
printer to advance after performing a print operation. Press the Enter key to save the 
new value and return to normal menu functions. 

Trimmed Print Corners 


When using the Local Screen Printer function, you can use the Print Trim feature to 
specify a portion of the screen to be printed. The Trimmed Print Corners field shows the 
size of the trim area by line number and column number. To enable or disable the use of 
the Print Trim feature or to change the size of the trim area, use the Print function as

ASCII Passthru Mode 


ASCII Passthi u Mode adds flexibility to the Flost Addressable Print function. The FIAP 
feature can send data to the terminal in LU1 (EBCDIC data) or LU3 (Regen data) Mode. 
The APM can then perform its functions prior to the terminal sending the data to the 
printer. The NIBBLE DELIMITER String (NDS) field must be filled in with one or two 
characters. APM data characters must be 0-9 or A-F, any others will cause the program to 
terminate any APM functions being performed on that string with a result of a garbled 
printout. 

APM selections: 

• OFF - all the APM features have been disabled. This is the default setting. All data is 
handled as normal. 

• SINGLE PAIR - the NDS will be followed by two bytes of data which will be 
converted into one byte of data which will be sent to the printer without any translation. 

• MULTIPLE PAIRS - each pair of data which occur between NDS strings will be 
converted and packed into single bytes of data which will be sent to the printer without 
any translation. 

There is also a provision for what can be called an exclusion mode. To turn on the 
exclusion mode NDS followed by byte followed by the NDS must be sent. All 
data following is ignored unless it appears between other stalling and ending NDS 
strings. To turn off the exclusion mode, send ‘+’ byte between two NDS strings. 

• SINGLE TERMINATOR - same as Multiple Pairs, but the beginning NDS is two 
bytes and the ending NDS is only one byte.

Setup Menus, Controls, and Indicators 


• HEX DUMP - converts each byte of data which would have normally been sent to 
the printer to two bytes of data in a hexadecimal format. The two bytes are then sent 
to the printer so that the data stream is printed out as hex bytes to allow for analysis of 
the data being sent. This selection also functions during local screen prints. 

Nibble Delimiter(s) 

To define the delimiter(s) for sending printer commands embedded in LU1 and LU3 
datastreams. highlight Nibble Delimiter(s). then press the Enter key. One or two 
displayable characters can be entered. The delimiter can be any displayable character 
and is chosen by using the Up/Down arrow keys to scroll through the options, and the 
Left/Right arrow keys to select which delimiter is being set. 

The Reset key exits Delimiter Setup without changing the characters. The Enter key 
exits Delimiter Setup with changing the characters. 

If you do not enter any characters, the feature is not active. If you enter 1 or 2 characters, 
the data pairs between the delimiters will be converted to bytes to send to the attached 
local printer. 

The following occurs when the APM is selected: 

OFF Data string sent to terminal to be printed is not scanned for delimiter strings. 

Data In = %%1B47426F6C641B48%% (20 characters in) 

Printed 

Output = %%1B47426F6C641B48%% (20 characters out) 

Single Pair The NDS (%%) is not sent to the printer. The 1 and the B characters following 

the NDS are combined into one byte of data (ASCII esc) which is sent to the 
printer. The rest of the characters are sent unchanged. 

Data In = %%lBGBold%%lBH (14 characters in) 

Data Out = <esc>GBold<esc>H (8 characters out) 

Result: <esc>G puts the printer into enhanced mode, ‘Bold’ is 

printed enhanced (Bold) and <esc>H takes printer out of 
enhanced mode. 

Multiple Pairs The NDS (%%) is not sent to the printer. Each pair of characters following the 
NDS (%%) are combined into single bytes of data (ASCII esc, G, B, etc.) which 
are sent to the printer until the ending NDS is reached. The ending NDS is not 
sent to the printer. Any data following will be sent unchanged. 

Data In = %%1B47426F6C641B48%% (20 characters in) 

Data Out = <esc>GBold<esc>H (8 characters out) 

Result: <esc>G puts the printer into enhances mode, ‘Bold’ is printed

Operating Procedures 


Adjusting the Screen Display 


The 1483 is designed to operate with a color SVGA or VGA, or a monochrome SVGA or 
VGA monitor. If the screen is not displaying correctly, or there is interference from 
nearby electronic devices, you may need to change the vertical refresh rate (color) or 
mode/intensity setting (monochrome) on your monitor. Follow the appropriate 
procedure below. 


Color Monitor 


If you use a color monitor, two vertical refresh rates are possible, 72 FIz mode (the 
default) and 60 FIz mode. 

To change the vertical refresh rate, turn the Power-On/Off switch to Off, then press and 
hold one of the following function keys while you turn the Power-On/Off switch to On: 

FI - Sets a color monitor to 60 FIz vertical refresh rate. 

F2 - Sets a color monitor to 72 FIz vertical refresh rate. 

F7 - For multifrequency monitors that can operate up to 42 KHz, sets vertical refresh 
rate to 75 Hz. 


Monochrome Monitor 


To adjust the mode or intensity setup, turn the Power-On/Off switch to Off, then press 
and hold one of the following function keys while you turn the Power-On/Off switch to 
On: 

F3 - Sets the monitor to 14-inch monochr ome VGA mode with “color” menus that display 
varying monochrome intensities in different fields. 

F4- Sets the monitor to 14-inch monochr ome VGA mode with “color” menus that display 
varying monochrome intensities. This setting gives a different set of intensity defaults 
than those generated by pressing F3. 

F5 - Sets the monitor to 15-inch SVGA mode. 

F6 - Sets the monitor to 14-inch or 15-inch monochrome with overscan (for use with 
monitors that support overscan).

Operating Procedures 


Assigning a Coax Printer 


Each display station in a system configuration can be assigned a Host printer for 
generating copies of information displayed on the screen. These copies can be used to 
maintain records of terminal/CPU transactions. 

For 104-key and 122-key keyboards, press and hold the Alt key, then press the Ident key 
to display the Assign Printer condition symbol ( □—□ _ _ ) on the operator status row. 
For 102/103-key keyboards, press and hold the Shift key, then press the Ident key to 
display the symbol. 

Note: If □ 99 appears on the operator status row when the Ident key is pressed, 
the □ _ _ will not display. Enter Setup mode and select Host printer 
instead of Screen printer or Trimmed Print. This allows you to assign the coax 
printer. 

Consult your supervisor for an available coax printer’s ID number and enter the two- 
digit number for the printer being assigned. The two-digit number replaces the 
underscore positions on the operator status row. Once the printer’s ID number is 
entered, the sequence ends automatically. 

If an invalid ID number is entered for a Host printer, the “What?” symbol (X ?+) appears 
on the operator status row. If this occurs, press the Reset key and try another number. 


Data Entry Function 


The data entry function consists of writing data messages in an acceptable form for 
computer processing. As you enter messages through the keyboard, they are displayed 
on the screen either as unformatted information or according to a program determined 
format. Attributes of the formatted display screen fields control the amount and type 
(alphanumeric or numeric) of entered data. 

Figure 4-1 on Page 4-4 shows a typical formatted display screen. All fields on the 
screen are preceded by a nondisplayed attribute character and are defined as 
protected or unprotected (entry) fields. For protected fields, the application program 
fills in the information following the attribute characters. Attempts to change 
displayed information in a protected field cause a “Go Elsewhere” condition symbol 
( X * -*■) to be displayed on the operator status row. The unprotected (or entry) 
fields accept new or revised information from the operator. Some application 
programs further designate an entry field by displaying the cursor in the unprotected 
field’s first character position. 


701344-003 


4-3 








Operating Procedures 


Protected Field Cursor Unprotected Field (Entry) 



Attribute Character 
(not displayed) 


Figure 4-1. Typical Formatted Screen 

Unprotected fields are classified as either alphanumeric or numeric. Alphanumeric 
fields can accommodate both alphabetic and numeric data characters. Numeric fields 
are controlled by the application program so that attempts to enter characters other 
than digits 0 through 9, a period, a Dup key, or a minus sign result in an error. On 
international keyboards, the comma can be entered instead of the period. The display 
station with a Data Entry keyboard automatically shifts into Numeric mode whenever 
the cursor enters a numeric field. 

Data characters in unprotected fields also can be displayed as intensified (brighter) fields. 
In applications requiring the use of confidential information, both the protected and 
unprotected fields can be programmed to be nondisplayed fields. 

Note: Use of nondisplayed fields precludes visual verification of entered data before 
transmission to the CPU. 

Before you can begin to enter data characters, the display station must access the CPU 
and its application program. Access is usually achieved by using the Attention, Program 
Access (PA), Function (F), Clear, or Enter key, or through a series of sign-on commands 
and programmed CPU responses. This series is initiated when the display station comes 
online. Contact your supervisor or refer to a system user’s guide for appropriate program 
accessing procedures. 


Keyboard Operations 


The description of keystroke functions and operations initiated from the keyboard in this 
section applies to display stations with 102/103-key, 104-key, or 122-key keyboards 
attached. If symbols are different from keyboard to keyboard, all are illustrated in the 
text. The symbols for each function can be found on the keyboard attached to the display. 
Remember that legends that appeal' on the key face are Alt functions and legends that 
appeal' on the key top can be shifted or nonshifted functions as illustrated in Figure 3-1 
on Page 3-3.

Operating Procedures 


Entering Data Characters and Selecting Modes 


Alphabetic, numeric, and special characters can be entered by pressing their corresponding 
keys. 

After filling the last data line of the display screen, the cursor automatically returns to 
the first available character position, and entry of additional data may write over any 
previously entered characters. To prevent loss of previous entries, transmit the data 
message to the CPU whenever the screen has been completely filled with data. Refer to 
“Message Transmitting Function” on Page 4-10. 

Uppercase characters or the upper characters on dual character keys are entered by 
selecting the Shift or Numeric mode before pressing the key. On Data Entry keyboards, 
you can enter alphabetic characters in numeric fields by using the Shift ( ft) and 
Alpha ( fj.) keys (see “Numeric Lock Mode,” below). 

Shift Mode 


Flold the Shift key ( 0) down while entering data to select upper characters on dual 
character keys or uppercase characters for alphabetic keys, or press and release to turn 
off the Shift Lock feature for keyboards with typewriter layouts. 

Shift mode is designated on the operator status row by the H symbol. 

Press the Shift Lock key ( 0 ) to lock the keyboard into Shift mode. Lor Typewriter 
keyboards, press either Shift key to unlock. Lor Data Entry keyboards, press the Shift 
Lock key again to exit Shift mode. Lor 102/103-key keyboards, use the Caps Lock key 
in place of the Shift Lock key. In Shift Lock mode, for 122-key, and 104-key, keyboards, 
all keys are shifted. Lor 102/103-key keyboards, only the alphabetic keys are shifted. 

Numeric Lock Mode 

Numeric Lock mode is set or reset on the Offline Keyboard menu (Ligure 3-6 on 
Page 3-12). When Numeric Lock is turned on, fields accept only the digits 0 through 9, 
the Period (.), Minus (-), and Dup keys (and comma [,] on some international keyboards). 
When the cursor enters a numeric field, the NUM symbol is displayed on the operator 
status row, and only the permitted characters can be entered. If you attempt to enter 
nonnunreric characters in a numeric field, the keyboard locks. Locking the keyboard 
turns off the Keyboard clicker if it was on, and turns on the Keyboard clicker if it was off. 
Press the Reset key to restore normal operation. 

On Typewriter keyboards, the display station goes into lowercase mode when the cursor 
enters a numeric field. On Data Entry keyboards, the display station goes into uppercase 
mode when the cursor enters a numeric field. 

Nonnumeric characters can be entered in numeric fields by the following methods: 

Lor Data Entry keyboards and Typewriter keyboards, press the Shift key ( ft ) to enter 
uppercase characters in a numeric field. 

Lor Data Entry keyboards only, press the Alpha key ( 0 ) to enter any lowercase character 
in a numeric field.

Operating Procedures 


The Shift Lock key does not override the Numeric Lock feature. 


Keystroke Record/Playback 


The Keystroke Record/Playback function enables you to reduce the number of 
keystrokes required for a frequently repeated entry such as a logon sequence or an address. 
Keystroke sequences can be stored for each of the Function keys. The combined total 
of stored keystrokes cannot exceed 7000 and the Shift key and Alt key each count as two 
keystrokes. The entered keystroke sequences are stored in nonvolatile memory, which 
means that the data is retained even if the power is turned off. 

Calculator keystrokes can be recorded with the Record/Playback feature. Entering 
Calculator mode, importing data, doing calculations, exporting data, and exiting Calculator 
mode can all be recorded. The only limitation is that the status of the calculator (on or 
off) to begin playback must be the same as when the record sequence was stalled. 

Storing Keystroke Sequences 


Keystroke sequences are stored by keying as follows: 

1) Press the Record key. R, a number indicating the available keystroke storage space, 
and the Record key indicator are displayed on the operator status row. 

2) Press an F or PF key. The selected key number is displayed on the operator status 
row along with the number of keystrokes that have already been assigned to that 
key, if any. The key number is displayed in high intensity. At this point, you can 
press the Record key or the Quit key to exit to Online mode. 

3) If keystrokes are already assigned to this key, you can clear them by pressing the 
Delete key ( st ). The keystrokes are deleted and you exit to Online mode. If you do 
not want to delete the previously assigned sequence, press Record and choose another 
Function key. While you are entering keystrokes, press the Quit key to clear the 
currently recorded keystrokes and exit to Normal mode. 

4) Begin typing the keystroke sequence. If the selected Function key has no keystrokes 
previously assigned to it, the number on the status row decreases by one each time 
you press a key. The number decreases by two every time you press a Shift or Alt 
key. 

To record a .25-second pause after a keystroke, press the Record Wait key. The 
Record Wait key is only on the 122-key keyboard. It is the leftmost key on the 
bottom row of the left keypad and has a blank face. You can press the Record Wait 
key several times to increase the length of the pause.

6) Press the Record key to store the sequence and exit Record mode. 

Playing Keystroke Sequences 


A stored sequence is automatically keyed in Playback mode by doing the following: 

1) Set the cursor to the selected insertion location. 

2) Press the Play key. P is displayed on the operator status row along with the total 
number of recorded keys. 

3) Press the Function key under which the sequence is stored. The stored characters 
are keyed back at approximately five characters per second. Press the Quit key during 
replay to return the display terminal to Normal mode. The P is no longer displayed 
on the operator status row after playback completes. 

4) After you press the Pause key in Record mode, the replaying temporarily stops and 

the symbol P * A is displayed on the operator status row. You can temporarily resume 
normal operations and press the Play key to continue replaying the rest of the recorded 
keystrokes. 

Record/Play Security Mode 


When you enable this option, you cannot use the alphanumeric keys on the keyboard to 
record data, If you try, the 1483 automatically exits from Record/Playback mode. It also 
prevents you from playing back data recorded in the Command or Function keys. If you 
press a Function key, the display station exits from Record/Playback mode. 

Enabling Record Security Mode 


Enable Record Security mode by selecting Play/Record Option on the System 
Manager menu (Figure 7-1 on Page 7-2). Follow the instructions in “Play/Record 
Option” on Page 7-7 to select a Record Security mode.

Operating Procedures 


Cursor Select Data Entry 


The Cursor Select key, CrSel, can be used to select certain data fields from a 
formatted screen. The application program must define selectable fields by 
writing the appropriate attribute. These data fields are read by the application 
program for additional processing. 

Each selectable data field is preceded by an appropriate field attribute character and a 
designator character. Designator characters precede one of two types of fields: selection 
fields or attention fields. With the Cursor Select key, items in a selection field can be 
selected and then the program can be notified of the selection by selecting an attention 
field. 

An unselected selection field is preceded by a question mark (?), which changes to a 
greater than symbol ( >) when the field is selected. Attention fields are preceded by an 
ampersand (&) or space. These symbols do not change when an attention field is 
selected. 

To select or deselect a field, move the cursor to cover the appropriate designator character 
or any character in the field and press the Cursor Select key. The question mark preceding 
the field changes to a greater than symbol after the field has been selected. If you accidently 
select the wrong field, you can deselect it by pressing the Cursor Select key again in the 
same field. The greater than symbol preceding the field changes to a question mark after 
the field has been deselected. 

For some programs, after you have finished selecting fields, press the Enter key to send 
the fields to the host application program for additional processing. The selected fields 
also can be sent by selecting an attention field designator character using the Cursor 
Select key. The ampersand and space characters designate attention fields. Move the 
cursor to cover any character in the field and press the Cursor Select key to send the 
attention field data along with data in any other selected field on the screen. 

Exiting the Cursor Select operation depends upon the program in use. Refer to a user’s 
guide for your application for the proper procedure. 


Data Editing Function 


You can change the contents of a message before you send it to the CPU, or you can call 
up a previously entered message for editing. 

Use the Attention, PA, F, PF, Clear, or Enter key to call up a previously entered message, 
or use a series of sign-on commands and programmed CPU responses. The sign-on 
commands are automatically initiated when the display station comes online. Contact 
your supervisor or refer to a system user’s guide for appropriate recalling procedures. 

All keys described in “Keyboard Operations” beginning on Page 4-4 can be used to edit 
data messages. In addition, the following keys can be used to add or delete information: 

Press the Insert key to enter Insert mode for adding characters at the cursor’s current 
position. Press Reset to exit Insert mode. The symbol is displayed on the operator 
status row to indicate the display station is in Insert mode. 


701344-003

cursor’s current position. The remainder of the line shifts one character position to the 
left. 

Press the Alt key and the Delete Word key ( aaa*) (DelWd on 102/103-key keyboard) to 
delete a word beginning at the current cursor position. This key combination is functional 
only if the control unit to which the display station is attached supports the Entry Assist 
feature. 

Press the Erase to End of Field key, Erase EOF (ErEOF for 122-key and 102/103-key 
keyboards), to erase all entry field positions from the cursor’s current position to the end 
of field. The cursor does not move from its current position. 

Press the Alt and Er Inp keys to erase all entry field positions and to move the cursor to 
the first available character position. 

Press the Shift key ( 0 ) and Dup key (Dup key only on 122-key Data Entry keyboards) 
to repeat entered data and to move the cursor to the first entry position of the subsequent 
entry field. 

Press the Shift key ( ft ) and Field Mark key (Field Mark key only on 122-key Data Entry 
keyboards) to enter a character that marks the end of an input field. 


Message Transmitting Function 


After you have filled all character positions on the screen, send the displayed information 
to the CPU before you continue to enter data. When a data character is entered in the 
next-to-last character position on the screen, the audible alarm sounds to remind you that 
the cursor is near the end of the screen. If you continue to enter new data, the cursor 
“wraps” and reappears in the first available character position of the screen. Subsequently 
entered characters replace displayed characters, resulting in loss of previous entries. 

After filling all required character positions on the screen, press the Enter key to request 
a communications line for sending displayed data to the CPU. 

Press the Clear key to erase all displayed data on the screen, return the cursor to the first 
available character position, and signal the CPU that a “clear” operation has occurred. 

The application program in use determines specific functions of the Program Access 
(PA) and Function (F or PF) keys. Contact your supervisor or refer to a system user’s 
guide for further information regarding these keys. 

The display station also can be used to send system request messages to the 
CPU, depending on the online rules condition symbol that is displayed on the 
operator status row. 

If online rules A apply (A is displayed on the operator status row), press the Alt and Sys 
Rq (System Request) keys to send the CPU a message that the display station may be 
malfunctioning or that a test request message is on the screen. If online rules B apply (B 
is displayed on the operator status row), press the Alt and Sys Rq keys to clear the 
display and switch the display station between the control (or master) program and 
application programs. Contact your supervisor or refer to a system user’s guide for 
additional information about this key combination.

IBM 3274) and the host CPU with which they are attached. The RTM is accessed and 
exited by pressing the ExSel key, followed by the F19 key (122-key or 104-key 
keyboards). Consult the control unit operator’s manual for additional specifications and 
operating procedures. 


Keyboard Switch Settings 


The keyboard switches are set at the factory according to the keyboard ordered. You 
should not need to change them. If the settings are inadvertently changed, set them 
according to the table on Page 4-16. If needed, use a pointed instrument to gently change 
the settings. 

Some keyboards do not have access to the keyboard switches. If you have this kind of 
keyboard, you can set the switches through key sequences. See “Setting the Keyboard 
Switches through Key Sequences” on Page 4-16 for the key sequences.

Operating Procedures 


Display Indicators 


Power-On 


When lit, the Logic element Power-On indicator indicates that the Logic element is 
powered on and the Display element Power-On indicator indicates that the Display element 
is powered on. 


Cursor 


After the display station has been powered on and has completed its warm-up period, if 
it is attached to a controller with an inactive host, the cursor is displayed in the upper left 
corner of the screen. If the host is active, the cursor is positioned as specified by the host. 
When you enter data characters through the keyboard, the cursor moves to the next 
available screen character position. 


Using the Light Pen to Select Data 


You can use the optional light pen to select data from fields that are defined for light pen 
operations. Ask your supervisor to tell you which fields on the screens you use are set up 
for light pen selection. 

Do the following to select an item with the light pen: 

• Press the light pen to the screen on the field you want to select. 

• If you’ve turned on the Light Pen clicker, a click sounds when the field is selected. 

• If the field is preceded by ?, the ? changes to > when the field is selected. 

• If the field is preceded by &, processing begins as soon as you select the item. 

If necessary, complete the selection by pressing a keyboard key (for example, Enter) or 
perform an additional light pen selection (like pointing to an End command).

Operating Procedures 


Using the Electronic Security Lock 


To invoke the secure (locked) mode, the operator enters the Lock sequence (Right Alt 
key. Right Shift key, and Enter key). The control unit displays 0-r. on the status line and 
the display adds a 3 to act as a prompt for a user-definable three-key password to “unlock” 
the display. To unlock, type in the three-key password. Each key decrements the prompt 
number. If the password does not match, the 3 redisplays on the status line. When the 
password matches, the display is unlocked and the control unit removes the 0-" symbol. 

Powering off the display while locked means it will be locked when powered on next 
time. Upon power-on 0-^ 3 is displayed, requiring all three password keys to be entered 
to unlock the display. To change the password, see “Changing the Keyless Password” on 
Page 3-14. 

If the Dim Timer is not “off,” and the keyless password is not “off’ when the Dim Timer 
expires, the display station locks. Pressing the space bar once and entering the password 
“unlocks” the display.

Entry Assist 


In addition to the format controls (discussed below) supported in Change Format mode, 
the following functions are supported in Document mode: 

• Screen margins 

• Tabbing 

• Audible alarm indicating the approach of the end of the line 

• Word wrap automatically moving an unfinished word to the next line when the word 
would extend beyond the right margin 

• Autorepeat word forward and word reverse cursor movement 

• Autorepeat character deletion 

• Autorepeat character-deleting backspace in Insert mode 

• Word deletion 

Once formats are established, further data entry takes place in Document mode with the 
entry and editing functions listed above. Once text is entered, it remains in the given 
format even if the format is changed later or the terminal is taken out of Document mode. 


Entry Assist Functions 


Entry Assist functions consisting of formatting controls, cursor movement, and editing 
functions are described here for display stations with 102/103-key, 104-key, and 
122-key keyboards attached. 


Entering Document Mode 


To enter Document mode, press the Document mode key (FI), then press the Change 
Format key (F3). A format scale is displayed at the bottom of the screen, enabling various 
format parameters to be altered. Cursor movement and editing controls are given to 
certain keys upon entry into Document mode. When in Document mode, the display 
shows the DOC message on the status row. The DOC message disappears when the 
display is taken out of Document mode. 


Format Controls 


Once the display is in Document mode, press the Chg Fmt key to display the format 
scale. This scale is displayed at the bottom of the display screen. A reverse video block 
cursor is displayed on the format scale in the same column position as the chosen cursor 
in the display area (the display cursor’s vertical position has no effect on the format scale 
cursor’s position). Refer to Figure 5-1 on Page 5-3 for an example of the format scale.

Figure 5-1. The Format Scale 

To hide the format scale, press the Chg Fmt key again. 

Use the Cursor Left (•«— ) and Cursor Right (—►) keys to move the format scale cursor to 
the desired position. Once the format scale cursor is in position, press the appropriate 
format function key. When a function key is pressed, the format scale cursor disappears 
and leaves in its place the appropriate format symbol. To make the cursor reappear, press 
the Cursor Left or Cursor Right key. 

All of the format parameters are saved whenever the display exits Document mode. The 
last values established for the format parameters before exiting Document mode are in 
effect when the display returns to Document mode. The following format parameters 
(shown with their corresponding format symbols) can be changed on the format scale: 

• Left margin ( < ) 

• Right margin ( >) 

• Tab stops ( _ ) 

• End-of-line signal position ( * ) 

• Alternate right margin type ( I) 

• Format scale origin (changes the scale origin from 1 to 0 and vice versa) 

Left and Right Margins 


To set or move the left or right margin, move the format scale cursor to the desired 
position, then press the less than symbol key ( < ) for the left margin or the greater than 
symbol key ( >) for the right margin. The symbol is displayed on the format scale in the 
selected position. Only one left margin and one right margin can be defined on the format 
scale at a time. 


701344-003 


5-3 



















Entry Assist 


When a margin is redefined, the margin symbol is replaced by a symbol for the new 
margin. Tab stops and the end-of-line signal marker are retained even if they are placed 
outside the new margins. If the new left margin is to the right of the old right margin, the 
right margin is moved to its default position (the far right scale position). If the new right 
margin is to the left of the old left margin, the left margin is moved to its default position 
(the far left scale position). The right margin cannot be entered in the left margin default 
position, and vice versa. 

When data is entered between the margins, the cursor can be located over the left 
margin column, and data can be entered in this column. However, the cursor will wrap 
before it reaches the right margin column. Data cannot be entered in this column during 
normal typing. 

Even though a margin is defined and the display is in Document mode, data still can be 
entered to the left of the left margin or the right of the right margin. The left and right 
margins are established to stop the cursor during normal data entry. The Cursor Left and 
Cursor Right keys allow you to move the cursor beyond the margins, where data can be 
entered and modified the same as between the margins. 

Alternate Right Margin Type 


The standard right margin remains in effect during Document mode whether the 
Word Wrap function (described on Page 5-6) is active or not. However, some typing 
situations call for a margin release in which no right margin is observed. Setting the 
alternate right margin type allows you to define a right margin that is in effect when 
Word Wrap is on and that is ignored when Word Wrap is off. 

When the right margin is disabled (the alternate right margin set and Word Wrap is 
turned off), the right side of the screen acts as the right margin and text wraps at the 
screen’s margin regardless of word divisions. When Word Wrap is turned back on, the 
right margin previously in effect is reinstated. 

To give an existing right margin the alternate right margin attribute, place the format 
scale cursor over the right margin symbol, then press the Cursr Sel key. The greater than 
symbol ( >) turns into a broken vertical bar (!) indicating that the right margin is released 
when the Word Wrap function is turned off. To restore the standard right margin, place 
the cursor over the broken vertical bar and press Cursr Sel again. The greater than symbol 
returns to the format scale. 

Tab Stops 


Setting tab stops on the format scale allows the tab keys to function as they do on a 
typewriter, treating the defined column positions as tab stops. Once they are set. tab 
stops are used in Document mode by pressing the Forward Tab ( -H ) or Reverse 
Tab ( h- ) key to move the cursor to the next tab stop to the right or left. 


5-4 


701344-003 




Entry Assist 


Tab stops are set by placing the format scale cursor in the desired position, then pressing 
the Forward Tab key. The format scale displays an underscore ( _ ) in the new tab stop 
position unless a margin symbol or end-of-line signal symbol is in the selected position. 
Even if the tab stop symbol cannot be displayed in a position, the tab function is still in 
effect. 

Up to 20 tab stops can be defined in any position on the format scale. Attempts to enter 
more than 20 tab stops are ignored. 

To clear a tab stop, place the format scale cursor on the tab stop symbol in question, then 
press the Delete Character key ( 2 ? ). To clear all tab stops from the format scale at once, 
press the Clear key. All tab stop symbols are removed from the format scale. 

End-of-Line Signal 


For the end-of-line signal to work, the audible alarm feature must function. When the 
end-of-line signal is set, the display sounds the audible alarm as the cursor enters the 
selected column position. This function can be used to warn of the approach of the right 
margin, like the right bell on a typewriter. 

To set the end-of-line signal, place the format scale cursor in the desired position, then 
press the Asterisk key (*). An asterisk is displayed in the selected position. The end-of- 
line signal function is then enabled and remains in effect during Document mode until 
the asterisk is removed. 

To disable the end-of-line signal function, place the cursor over the asterisk, then press 
the Delete Character key ( a*). The asterisk disappears and the function is disabled. If a 
tab stop is located at the end-of-line signal position, removing the asterisk also removes 
the tab stop. 

The Format Scale Origin 


The format scale numbers can be shifted so that the scale begins with Position 1 instead 
of Position 0. Tab stops, margins, and end-of-line signal positions are not shifted with 
respect to the screen when the scale numbers are shifted. 

To change the scale origin, place the format scale cursor at the leftmost position on the 
scale, then press the CrSel key. The numbers on the line are shifted one space to the left. 
Pressing CrSel again returns the origin to 0. 


Cursor Movement and Editing Functions 


Cursor movement and editing functions are active whenever the display is in Document 
mode. These functions are subject to the limitations imposed by the format parameters 
currently set on the format scale. 

Cursor movement and editing functions available in Document mode are the following: 

• Word wrap. 

• Autorepeat cursor movement to next word. 

• Autorepeat cursor movement to previous word. 


701344-003 


5-5 




Entry Assist 


• Delete word to the right. 

• Autorepeat deletion of character to the right. 

• Tab function inserting space characters. 

• Backtab function. 

• Backspacing with deletion. 

• New line function observing left margin. 

Word Wrap 


The Word Wrap function is turned on and off in Document mode by pressing the F2 
(Word Wrap) key. This parameter, like other format parameters, is saved when the display 
is removed from Document mode and returns to its last state when the display returns to 
Document mode. The Word Wrap symbol ( 0 ) indicates that word wrapping is in effect. 
When the function is on, text entry is subject to word wrapping between the left and right 
margins. 

Word wrapping occurs when a word being entered would extend beyond the right margin. 
When the character is entered that would go beyond the right margin, the entire word is 
moved down one line and to the left margin. If a space is entered in the position one 
character left of the right margin, the cursor is moved to the left margin of the next line 
without word wrapping. If the cursor is one space left of the right margin and the Dup 
key is pressed, the Dup character appears on the right margin and the Dup function 
works as defined outside of Document mode. 

The positions previously occupied by the first part of the word are replaced by space 
characters. When a word is wrapped to the left margin of the next line, any null characters 
to the left of the left margin are changed to space characters to preserve the format when 
it is sent to the host CPU. 

Word wrapping does not occur unless the entire row onto which the word is wrapped 
contains only nulls or spaces. In some cases word wrapping cannot occur. In these cases, 
input is inhibited and the status row shows the Too Much symbol ( X S > ). Press the 
Reset key for additional entry. The following conditions prevent word wrapping: 

• The word takes up the entire length of the line. 

• There is already text on the next line. 

• The current line is the last line on the screen. 

• The next line begins with a protected field. 


5-6 


701344-003 





Entry Assist 


If the display is in Insert mode and a word is inserted on a line, any word pushed beyond 
the right margin may be wrapped to the next line if the next line contains enough spaces 
after its last word or its margins contain enough nulls to make room for the wrapped 
word. If the word cannot be wrapped onto the next line, input is inhibited and the Too 
Much symbol is displayed on the status row. 

Move Cursor to Next Word (Autorepeat) 


To move the cursor to the next word, press and hold the Alt key, then press the Cursor 
Right key ( -•-►). The cursor moves to the first character in the next word, or, if currently 
in a word at the end of a line, to the first space or null character following the current 
word. The cursor does not move into protected fields with this function. 

The cursor is moved to the next word regardless of the location of the margins. If text is 
located outside the margins, the cursor moves to the text without recognizing the margins. 
The cursor wraps to the next row only when there are no more words in the current row. 
When the last word is reached on the last row, the cursor is wrapped to the first word on 
the first row of the display. 

Continuing to hold down the Alt and Cursor Right keys causes the function to repeat 
automatically. 

Move Cursor to Previous Word (Autorepeat) 


Press and hold the Alt key, then press the Cursor Left key ( ) to move the cursor to 

the beginning of the current word (or, if already at the beginning of a word, to the beginning 
of the word to the left). If the cursor is located at the first word on a row, it is wrapped to 
the beginning of the last word on the previous row. If at the top left position on the 
screen, the cursor is wrapped to the beginning of the last word on the screen. 

Continuing to hold down the Alt and Cursor Left keys causes the function to repeat 
automatically. 

Delete Next Word 


The Delete Word key ( aast ) is the alternate function of the Delete Character key ( ^ ) 
when the display is in Document mode. Pressing the Delete Word key erases the character 
at the cursor location and the remainder of the word to the right of the cursor. If the 
cursor is on the first character of a word, the whole word is erased. If the cursor is on a 
space or null, only the space or null is erased. Punctuation and spaces following a word 
are also erased (unless only part of the word is erased, in which case the space or null 
remains). 

When a word is deleted, the cursor remains in place and subsequent data on the line 
moves to the left. Shifting does not occur for attributes, characters to the right of attributes, 
or subsequent lines of data. If deletion is attempted on an attribute or a protected field, 
input is inhibited and the Go Elsewhere symbol ( X ■*- i -*■) is displayed on the status 
row. Press the Reset key to enable additional entry. 


701344-003 


5-7 







Entry Assist 


Cursor Tabbing 


Pressing the Forward Tab key ( -H ) causes the cursor to move to the next unprotected tab 
stop. Intervening unprotected null characters are converted to space characters to preserve 
the format when data is transmitted to the host CPU. If the cursor reaches an unprotected 
attribute before it reaches a tab stop, it will stop at the attribute. If no tab stops and no 
attributes are defined, the cursor moves to the top left position on the screen. 

If there are tabs or unprotected attributes on the screen, tabbing does not allow the cursor 
to wrap from the lower right corner of the screen to the upper left corner of the screen. 

For some programs, the introduction of additional data (in the form of nulls being converted 
into space characters) may cause problems. Programs should be verified for use with the 
tab function in Entry Assist. 

Backtab Function 


The Cursor Backtab function works like the Forward Tab function except that the cursor 
is moved to the previous tab stop or the first unprotected character of the current or 
previous field. Pressing the Backtab key ( h- ) causes a backtab operation. Nulls are not 
changed to spaces when a backtab operation is performed. The cursor will not wrap from 
the upper left corner of the screen to the lower right corner. 

Backspacing with Deletion 


Pressing the Backspace key ( t — ) in Insert mode deletes the character to the left of the 
cursor and causes the cursor to move left one character space. Characters to the right of 
the cursor on the same line are moved one character to the left. Attributes and characters 
to the right of attributes are not moved. 

If the cursor is located at the left margin when the Backspace key is pressed, input is 
inhibited and the Go Elsewhere symbol ( X S -►) is displayed on the status row. Press 
the Reset key to resume entry. 

New Line Function 


Pressing the New Line key (<—I) causes the cursor to move down one line and return to 
the established left margin. If the left margin is protected, the cursor moves to the first 
unprotected position to the right of the left margin. Unprotected null characters to the left 
of the left margin are converted to spaces as long as there are no fields between the nulls 
and the cursor. 

If the cursor is on the last row of the screen and the New Line key is pressed, the cursor 
is positioned on the first row of the screen. 

If there are no unprotected locations between the margins, the cursor moves to the left 
margin of the first row on the screen.

Diagnostic Testing Function 


The 1483 Display Station can perform two types of diagnostic tests: offline tests that 
check the operation of the display station independent of its attached control unit, and 
online tests that check the 1483 as it interacts with the attached control unit. For puiposes 
of customer problem determination, some offline tests are presented in this section. 
For information about online tests, refer to your controller’s user’s guide. 


Offline Tests 


The display station temporarily enters Offline Test mode each time it is powered on. The 
display station’s own series of Basic Assurance Tests (BATs) are run each time the display 
station is powered on. If an error is detected, the alarm sounds and an error condition 
may be displayed in row 1, column 1. K is displayed for a keyboard error and L is 
displayed for a logic error. 

Flold down a key while simultaneously turning on the Power-On/Off switch to enter 
Offline Test mode. From Offline Test mode, you can enter Setup mode to set or change

Preventive Maintenance 


Preventive maintenance for the 1483 is limited to keeping the display station clean and 
dust-free. Use a nonabrasive solution (such as alcohol or window cleaner) and a soft, 
lint-free cloth to clean the screen. All ventilation ports must be kept free of dirt and dust.

Chapter 8. Operating the Split 

Screen Feature 


With the 1483 Display Station, you can display and operate two sessions on one monitor 
in either a top and bottom format or a zoomed session (that is, one of the two sessions 
occupies the entire display surface and you toggle between the two sessions). You can 
also copy fields from one session to the other, in either top and bottom format or zoom 
format. Split screen sessions are supported on a display configured as a Mod 2 only. 


Installation Requirements 


In addition to the installation requirements in this section, see Chapter 2, “Customer 
Installation,” for additional installation information. 


Controllers 


To support Split Screen mode, the controller must be configured for two or more logical 
sessions on the display terminal’s port. In addition, PC File Transfer mode must be set 
for those ports that use the mark/paste function of the 1483. 


Display Requirements 


The 1483 split screen feature is provided by a special software program on the main 
logic board. The display station must be in Mod 2 mode to be able to exercise the enhanced 
split screen features. Flost Addressable Printing must be disabled before the 1483 can 
enter Split Screen mode. 


Other Requirements 


Only 122-key keyboards are supported. 

The light pen is not supported in Split Screen mode. 

Split Screen mode is not supported during Partition windowing if the display station is 
set up with Partition ON or if Partitioning loads a Mod size other than Mod 2. 


701344-003

Operating the Split Screen Feature 


Operation 


The following sections tell you how to enter Split Screen mode and use the split screen 
enhancements. 


Entering Split Screen Mode 


To enter Split Screen mode, press and hold down the Alt key while you press the Dual 
key. The display station remains in Split Screen mode until you ran the Alt-Dual key 
sequence again or go offline. While the display station is in Split Screen mode and is in 
communication with the controller, such enhanced functions as top and bottom display, 
mark/paste, and special key assignments are available. 

When the display station is not in Split Screen mode, it operates like a standard 3270 
display. 


Active and Suspended Screens 


Split Screen mode permits a standard 1483 single-imaging device to simultaneously 
display two host sessions. Because two or more sessions must be managed, one session 
is selected as the active session and the other as the inactive or suspended session. The 
active session is always displayed and, because the split screen 1483 can concurrently 
display both the active and the suspended sessions, the active session is the session that 
contains the cursor. For this reason, use either a block or a blinking cursor for Split 
Screen mode. 

The top session is displayed with 24 lines of Mod 2 data plus the status row information 
with a separator line below the status row. The bottom session is displayed with 18 lines 
of data with the status row information below those 18 lines.

The following commands and features are available in Split Screen mode. 


Zoom 


Press the Zoom key ( □—□) to alternate the display between unzoomed (top and bottom) 
format and zoomed (normal) format. The zoomed format is identical to the standard 
Mod 2 format.

Operating the Split Screen Feature 


Select Top 


Press the Select Top key ( ?~\) to position the cursor in the session on the top of the 
display when the display is in split format. The Select Top key operates in zoom and split 
modes. The session on the top is now the active session and receives immediate screen 
updates. The session on the bottom is “frozen,” which means it does not display new 
screen updates until it becomes the active session. The Select Top key has no effect if the 
top session is already active. 

Select Bottom 


Press the Select Bottom key ( ) to position the cursor in the session on the bottom of 

the display when the display is in split format. The Select Bottom key operates in zoom 
and split modes. The session on the bottom is now the active session and receives 
immediate screen updates. The session on the top is “frozen,” which means it does not 
display new screen updates until it becomes the active session. The Select Bottom key 
has no effect if the bottom session is already active. 

When the screen is in split mode and the bottom session is active, there are only 18 lines 
displayed of the 24 available. To see all 24 lines simultaneously, press the Zoom key. 
Press the Zoom key again to return to split mode. While in split mode, the 18-line display 
window can be scrolled up and down with Alt-Up/Alt-Dn arrow keys. 

Since the cursor can be anywhere in the 24 lines of data, it can be located outside the 18 
lines that are displayed. When this occurs, the cursor will appear as a reverse video block 
in the bottom status row. Even though the reverse video block appears in the status row, 
it is still possible to type and enter data through the keyboard.

Step Active Session 


Press and hold the Alt key while you press the ChgSc key to change the active session to 
make the next highest session the active session. Do not change the active session using 
any other keystroke sequence. The session that is not selected is not affected. 

For example, suppose three sessions are available. If Session 2 is the active session (the 
cursor is in Session 2) and is on the top and Session 1 is on the bottom, press Alt-Change 
Screen to increment the top to Session 3. Session 3 displays on the top and has the cursor. 
Session 1 is still on the bottom (see Figure 8-3, below). If you press the Select Bottom 
key, Session 3 is still displayed on the top and Session 1 is still displayed on the bottom, 
but now Session 1 has the cursor.

Mark 


To select a field as the source field for a subsequent paste operation, hold down the Alt 
key while you press the F4 key (Mark). See “Mark/Paste” on Page 8-7 for a complete 
description. 

Paste 


To select a field as the target field and paste source data into that field, move the cursor to 
the target field and hold the Alt key while you press the F5 key (Paste). The data in the 
source field is pasted into the target field. If there is already data in the target field, that 
data is overwritten with the data from the source field. See ''Mark;' above, for instructions 
on how to select a source field. The target field cannot be in the same session as the 
source field. See “Mark/Paste” on Page 8-7 for additional information about mark and 
paste. 

Paste Horizontal 


To select a field as the target field, paste source data into that field, and then select the 
next source and target fields, move the cursor to the target field and press and hold the Alt 
key while you press the F6 key (Paste Florizontal). The data in the source field is pasted 
into the target field, the field beneath the current source field becomes the new source 
field, and the cursor moves to the field beneath the current target field. If the current 
source or target field is the bottom field on the screen, the topmost field on the next line 
becomes the new source or target field. If the current source or target field is the last field 
on the screen, the Mark/Paste function ends. If there is already data in the target field, 
that data is overwritten with the data from the source field. See "Mark,” above, for 
instructions on how to select an initial source field. The target field cannot be in the same 
session as the source field. See “Mark/Paste” on Page 8-7 for additional information 
about mark and paste. 

Paste Vertical 


To select a field as the target field, paste source data into that field, and then select the 
next source and target fields, move the cursor to the target field and press and hold the Alt 
key while you press the F7 key (Paste Vertical). The data in the source field is pasted into 
the target field, the field beneath the current source field becomes the new source field, 
and the cursor moves to the field below the current target field. If the current source or 
target field is at the bottom of the screen, the Mark/Paste function terminates. If there is 
already data in the target field, that data is overwritten with the data from the source 
field. See "Mark,” above, for instructions on how to select an initial source field. The 
target field cannot be in the same session as the source field. See "Mark/Paste” on Page 
8-7 for additional information about mark and paste.

701344-003 




Operating the Split Screen Feature 


Mark/Paste 


Use the Mark/Paste feature to copy data between sessions. With this feature, you can 
quickly mark and paste data between fields in different sessions. 

Mark Field 

The mark field is the field you highlight as the source data field. The data to be pasted 
must be within a displayed field. Data cannot be marked for pasting if it is in a 
nondisplayable field. Data can be pasted from protected as well as unprotected fields. 
You must select the mark field before you select the paste field. 

To select the source or mark field, position the cursor anywhere within the field, then 
press and hold down the Alt key while you press the F4 key (Mark). The field is displayed 
in reverse video to indicate it is selected. If the Mark key is pressed while a field is 
already selected, the selected field is deselected. The field is also deselected after one of 
the Paste keys is pressed or if the session with the selected field is reselected with the 
Select Bottom or Select Top key. A session with a selected field is frozen and does not 
receive coax updates. 

After you select a field as the source or mark field, use the Select Top or Select Bottom 
key to make the opposite session the active session, then move the cursor to the target 
field. 

Paste Field 

The paste field is the field that receives the data from the mark field and it cannot be in 
the same session as the mark field. The field that receives the pasted data must be an 
unprotected field. Standard data truncation rules apply when the paste and mark fields 
are of different lengths. If the paste field is longer than the mark field, data is replaced in 
the paste field only up to the length of the mark field. If the paste field is shorter than the 
mark field, data is truncated up to the length of the paste field. The data that has been 
pasted is temporary until you press an Aid key (Enter or F key), which means if you press 
a Select Bottom or Select Top key before you press an Aid key, the pasted data is lost. 

There are three forms of paste operations: paste, paste horizontal, and paste vertical. All 
three forms paste data the same way, but paste horizontal and paste vertical select 
additional source and target fields after they complete the paste operation. The Paste 
Horizontal key selects the next field beneath the current source field and moves the 
cursor beneath the current target field. The Paste Vertical key selects the next field below 
the current source field and moves the cursor to the field below the current target field. 
This makes it easy for you to perform quick row and column data copying by selecting 
the first mark and paste fields and then running successive Paste Horizontal or Paste 
Vertical operations.

source field, and the cursor moves to the field to the right of the current target field. If the 
current source or target field is the rightmost field on the screen, the leftmost field on the 
next line becomes the new source or target field. If the current source or target field is the 
last field on the screen, the Mark/Paste function terminates. If there is already data in the 
target field, that data is overwritten with the data from the source field. See “Mark,” 
above, for instructions on how to select an initial source field. The target field cannot be 
in the same session as the source field. See “Mark/Paste” on Page 9-7 for additional 
information about mark and paste. 

Paste Vertical 


To select a field as the target field, paste source data into that field, and then select the 
next source and target fields, move the cursor to the target field and press and hold the Alt 
key while you press the F7 key (Paste Vertical). The data in the source field is pasted into 
the target field, the field beneath the current source field becomes the new source field, 
and the cursor moves to the field below the current target field. If the current source or 
target field is at the bottom of the screen, the Mark/Paste function terminates. If there is 
already data in the target field, that data is overwritten with the data from the source 
field. See “Mark,” above, for instructions on how to select an initial source field. The 
target field cannot be in the same session as the source field. See “Mark/Paste” on 
Page 9-7 for additional information about mark and paste.

Operating the Dual Screen Features 


Mark/Paste 


Use the Mark/Paste feature to copy data between sessions. With this feature, you can 
quickly mark and paste data between fields in different sessions. 

Mark Field 

The mark field is the field you highlight as the source data field. The data to be pasted 
must be within a displayed field. Data cannot be marked for pasting if it is in a 
nondisplayable field. Data can be pasted from protected as well as unprotected fields. 
You must select the mark field before you select the paste field. 

To select the source or mark field, position the cursor anywhere within the field, then 
press and hold down the Alt key while you press the F4 key (Mark). The field is displayed 
in reverse video to indicate it is selected. If the Mark key is pressed while a field is 
already selected, the selected field is deselected. The field is also deselected after one of 
the Paste keys is pressed or if the session with the selected field is reselected with the 
Select Right or Select Left key. A session with a selected field is frozen and does not 
receive coax updates. 

After you select a field as the source or mark field, use the Select Left or Select Right key 
to make the opposite session the active session, then move the cursor to the target field. 

Paste Field 

The paste field is the field that receives the data from the mark field and it cannot be in 
the same session as the mark field. The field that receives the pasted data must be an 
unprotected field. Standard data truncation rules apply when the paste and mark fields 
are of different lengths. If the paste field is longer than the mark field, data is replaced in 
the paste field only up to the length of the mark field. If the paste field is shorter than the 
mark field, data is truncated up to the length of the paste field. The data that has been 
pasted is temporary until you press an Aid key (Enter or F key), which means if you press 
a Select Right or Select Left key before you press an Aid key, the pasted data is lost. 

There are three forms of paste operations: paste, paste horizontal, and paste vertical. All 
three forms paste data the same way, but paste horizontal and paste vertical select 
additional source and target fields after they complete the paste operation. The Paste 
Horizontal key selects the next field to the right of the current source field and moves the 
cursor to the right of the current target field. The Paste Vertical key selects the next field 
below the current source field and moves the cursor to the field below the current target 
field. This makes it easy for you to perform quick row and column data copying by 
selecting the first mark and paste fields and then executing successive Paste Horizontal 
or Paste Vertical operations.

Operating the Dual Screen Features 


Walk Through 


The following example shows you how to set up a dual screen session on the 1483. First, 
power on the display station, then follow these steps: 

1) Press the Alt-Dual key sequence. 

You enter Dual Screen mode. Dual screen enhancements are enabled on two side- 
by-side logic sessions. 

2) Press the Select Right key sequence. 

The cursor is displayed on the right side of the screen. The session on the right is 
now the active session. 

3) Press the Select Left key sequence. 

The cursor is displayed on the left side of the screen. The session on the left is now 
the active session. 

4) Log on. 

Log on to a host application using the session on the left side of the display. 

5) Press the Zoom key. 

The display consists of a standard, one-session format. 

6) Press the Select Right key. 

The session from the right side of the display becomes the active session. The screen 
is still zoomed and the right session is the only session displayed. 

7) Log on. 

Log on to a host application using the selected right session, which is the only 
session displayed. While the logon is processing, go to Step 8. 

8) Press the Zoom key. 

The display unzooms and consists of the side-by-side format. Wait for logon 
processing to complete. 


Screen Print Mode 


To perform a screen print in Dual Screen mode, you must zoom in on the session from 
which you want to print. The print session must be an active session. 

Follow these steps to perform a screen print: 

1) Select the session to be printed using the Select Left or Select Right key. 

2) Press the Zoom key so only one (active) session, is displayed. 

3) Print the screen using the normal screen print commands. 

4) Press the Zoom key to reenter Dual Screen mode.
