HACP Extended Edition (HACP EE) v1.4 is now available with additional features of color remap, status bar, and download as image which will enhance the user experience with emulator screen. Below is a quick list of all the new features.
Color remap is a powerful feature of IBM Host On-Demand (HOD) that allows users to change default colors of elements on the terminal screen or the Operator Information Area (OIA).
Starting v1.4, HACP EE client shows the colors of the elements on the terminal screen and OIA as mapped by HOD administrator in a session definition created for either a 3270 or a 5250 display terminal.
For example, if HOD administrator had mapped OIA status indicators’ default color to green, user will see OIA status indicators in green color when they open the session from HACP EE’s dashboard.
HACP EE user can also edit the color of different attributes and save their changes, from the “Settings” panel.
This version also comes with a new status bar for both 3270 and 5250 display sessions. Status Bar shows the connection details and interprets the OIA (Operator Information Area) messages in text. Status Bar is disabled by default and can be enabled from the “Settings” panel.
