Introduction

The ZIE for Web-Client provides an additional capability to provide an alternative screen size other than the standard screen size available for the 3270 host in a customized way. By default, the session definitions are defined by the administrator. With this feature, the user can modify the session properties on the client end. The overridden values precede the initial session properties set up by the administrator.

Pre-requisites

Configure the ‘screensize’ parameter value as ‘(17) 62×160’ under session properties by the administrator (This is specific for the 3270 host only).

Quick Actions to get benefit out of this feature:

To start with, the admin needs to set the following parameter in the Deployment Wizard, Advanced options🡪HTML parameters of ZIE for Web Emulator server.

Parameter name Description Valid values
AltScreenSize Defines the number of rows and columns on the screen. value=rows x columns

E.g., 40×80

 

In template file update hHod_AppletParams variable with all the custom parameters.

E.g.:

hHod_AppletParams[“altscreensize”] = “40×120”.

Now, if the user launches ZIE Web-Client page in the browser and launches the alternative screen size configured session of any 3270-display session, the terminal screen size would be overridden by a customized parameter.
