scrolling 13 Years, 8 Months ago  
In trying out 5.35 I have the vertical scoll checked and it is there but it doesnt remember history of previous screens. any help?
Also in using Informix software on a screen form using scoansi terminal I get some garage characters after entering my form and then pressing the delete key. They will go away if I use control R to redraw the screen. I am not getting this trying other terminal emulator programs. I trying to get your program to work because of the tabbing feature.

Re: scrolling 13 Years, 8 Months ago  
In trying out 5.35 I have the vertical scoll checked and it is there but it doesnt remember history of previous screens. any help?Usually, this type of thing is the result of your host program not really scrolling data off the screen. Often, screen oriented programs (such as vi, etc) appear to be scrolling data when they are really just repainting the screen over and over. There's not much I can do here unless you really believe the data is scrolling (such as catting a file from the command line which scrolls multiple pages onto the screen)

Also in using Informix software on a screen form using scoansi terminal I get some garage characters after entering my form and then pressing the delete key. They will go away if I use control R to redraw the screen. I am not getting this trying other terminal emulator programs. I trying to get your program to work because of the tabbing feature. Now this I'm sure I can help you with, but I'll need two things: a logfile and a screen snapshot.

To create the logfile, choose the File->Open LOG at the beginning of a session, then create your problem onscreen and use File->CloseLOG to close the logfile.

After closing the logfile, take a screen snapshot, zip the log and the snapshot together and mail them to me. Post back here when you are done.

Regards,

Brian

Are you using telnet, ssh1, or ssh2?

I was hoping you'd say that. Something is screwing up the data prior to passing it to the escape sequence processor. This could only mean the telnet option processor. I'm going to have to send you a new version with some more debugging to help track this down.

Re: scrolling 13 Years, 7 Months ago  
Right. RC11 was not supposed to fix anything. It just gives me more information to go on. I've tracked the problem down to extra telnet protocol IAC (hex FF) characters in the data. telnet commands are supposed to come in pairs (FF followd by another byte). In the data you sent me, the FF is followed by an escape sequence so the escape character is munched as the second (albeit invalid) byte of a telnet command sequence..

I've coded a workaround that ignores the FF byte if it is not followed by a valid telnet command byte. This should do the trick.

Give it a try here:

The version you downloaded is just a beta and will eventuall expire as all betas do. The changes, however, will make it into the next production release which will be out sometime in the next few weeks.

For now, just continue to use the beta.

Re: scrolling 13 Years, 7 Months ago  
Brian,

I've been having the same problem with the new version. After reading this thread, I have downloaded and installed the Beta twice. The scrollback function works properly the first time I open it, but after I save the settings for that session, it doesn't work again in subsequent sessions. This is getting rather annoying.

Quick update: I just tried an experiment. The scrollback works fine if I start my session from the Absolute Telnet program itself, as saved in my program files directory. It doesn't work if I re-open a saved sesion -- which of course is what I'd rather be able to do.

If you read back through this thread, you'll notice the beta never addressed the scrolling issue. It only addressed the improper drawing and placement of things on the screen. If you are having a scrolling problem, this is still unaddressed.
