Short Description URGENT: Need to make lean 3270 passthrough screen for demo on pocket-pc

Categories Type: Question   Department: Product   Category: Evaluation
I am preparing demo applications for pocket-pc devices to 
show at Ford Motor's E2K expo next week.  One of the 
applications we are doing is simply providing 3270 
application access over a wireless LAN connection from a 
pocket-pc device.

The primary challenge is fitting the typical 24x80 3270 
screen on the small form-factor of a pocket pc device.  
I've already got the default screensurfer web page (going 
to "toy mainframe") up on IE on the ppc device.  All I need 
to do is show the raw 3270 screen without the decorations.

Is there a quick way to set up (or modify an existing) 
template to pass just the 3270 screen (and maybe some very 
small buttons for PF keys) to the browser?

I am in a rush to get this demo functional so would 
appreciate a quick response.

We will set-up a global.stml file with what you are looking 
for and post it to our ftp site.

When it is ready we will update this ticket to let you know 
the file name, etc.  This should be in 15 minutes or so.

Basically we will be modifying the global.default section to 
be as you described.

We have a minimalist GIF for function keys but don't know if 
it will be right for you--have you tried-out the ActiveX 
control, which will make your function keys work like the 
function keys of a terminal?  Not always best for browser 
users, but works fine for users more accustomed to 3270 
terminal usage.

OK, a global.stml is available at:


Templates are in \screensurfer\hostserver\templates

To activate it, you should rename your current global.stml 
to global.bak.stml, then copy pocketglobal.stml to become 
the new global.stml.

The provided global.home section has a definition to connect 
to the Harvard Library System, one of our customers.  You 
may want to edit your global.bak.stml and copy any host 
connection links from it to the provided (new) global.stml.

Note that if you want to reduce the size of the font, you 
need to let us know, and we can provide specific settings to 
ensure that columns line up, etc.

Colors,etc. can be changed in the global_body section as you 
see them in the HTML.

By the way, the provided file is hard-coded for the function 
key GIF's--if you would like to use the activeX control to 
remap the keyboard let us know and we can provide

Customer replied via e-mail (please go to SupportCenter for 
follow-ups :)

Got following errors when restarting screensurfer service 
after substituting pocketglobal.stml for global.stml.  Are 
these to be expected?

Also (and maybe this is a result of the above errors when 
the service starts), the page still has the IE Screensurfer 
gif at the top as well as some others at the bottom.  Can 
these be removed too?

OOPS, we made a mistake--you need to rename your 
global.bak.stml to global.stml.bak -- your original 
global.stml is still being compiled because it has an 
extension of .stml, and the new one we sent you isn't even 
being used at all.

Once this is fixed & you re-compile, the GIFS will all be 
gone and you will just get a minimal browser window...
