At my first job the lower right Ctl button was mapped to field exit and
I've used that ever since. I've seen a lot of different mappings doing
remote sessions with customers too, but most use the + on the numeric
keyboard (which is a stretch for me used to Ctl).

I'm wondering if the old emulator had field exit mapped to enter? It's
possible that it could have acted like enter if the field was created with
'auto record advance' or whatever that's called.

Hi Linda

This is typical behavior when you need to press a field exit key of some
flavor to go on - we get the same thing when editing numeric values in DBU.

Maybe the older client had a setting for this, it'd be nice to have it,
but my memory says that in PC5250 I still have to press field exit or
field + or something like that.

Cheers
Vern

We have a dspf with the weirdest problem. This is only a problem with
the ACS emulator. Old iSeries Access emulator is fine.

The screen only has one entry field, which is defined by referencing an
11p0 field. There is no edit code on the field and this dspf was created
in 2000. In ACS if you enter a value and press enter or if you press any
of the fkeys allowed, it throws error "Enter key not allowed in field".
There is no way to get out of the screen. By chance, I discovered that if
the cursor is moved to any place on the screen besides in the actual field,
both enter and fkeys work. There is nothing out of the ordinary about the
dspf. I finally tried adding an edit code to the field and now it works
fine.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? This make me very leery
about rolling this emulator out to our users. We have hundreds of display
files and many of them are old and don't always have edit codes when they
should. This application is also used by an external client and is fronted
by LegaSuite (formerly JWalk) so I can't add the edit code without having
to change the panel.

Thanks,
