Hi Jeff,

If you use TN5250J (http://tn5250j.sourceforge.net/), a free 5250 emulator, the display attributes mode is available by right-clicking on the screen (or pressing alt-D), choose Settings, and in the Show Attributes section, select Hex. Each attribute byte is shown as a hex code in a tiny font.

I remember something similar being available in iAccess for Windows, but I don't see it in the version I have (5.8).

Tried that.
Mapped a key to TEST REQ (the only "TEST" function defined.
Tried it on a 5250 session, receive error Function key not allowed.

Back in the Good Old Days of Twinax displays, there was a key you

The 5250 device, display verification\capabilities /test/ feature?

That function doesn't seem to be available in CA.
The emulator feature, defined as a key, for a key-function defined by
possibly one of [Test] [TestRq] [TestReq] [TestRqs] [TstRqs] [TstReq] ?

Reading on Google I found reference to a macro you could run. Course
the full test of the doc requires a subscription...

A link; maybe some title and supporting text that was included? A
reviewer might be able to learn at least as much, to get an idea; or
perhaps to offer an alternative [source for the same or equivalent].

Anyone know how to do this and willing to share?
I am unsure what is being asked, but I offer my reply in i.c.as400 that
may provide leads to something helpful, even if not directly helpful:
