I am new to Absolute and trying to see if I should buy the full version or not. The main factor will be the ability to re-purpose the F1-F12 keys.

I need to be able to send the following command when pressing F1

(CONTROL)A@(CONTROL)M

The (CONTROL)M is basically ENTER.

I am SSH2 connecting to a LINUX server using VT100.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am using the 9.49 CR 29

Thanks

You can do this through the Keyboard Mapping feature under Options->Properties->Vtoptions->Edit Keymap.

Once on this dialog, do the following:

1. click 'Add'
2. press the F1 key when prompted for key to remap
3. Enter the text you want to send in place of the default F1 sequence.

HINT: To send unprintable characters, such as control characters, you have
to use the hex version of the character like this: \x0D for control-M (carriage return)

So, I think you want this:

\x01@\x0D

Let me know if this helps.

x01@x0D didn't help.

It basically just outputs that to the screen.

Sorry, the website munged the exact text. There *should* be back-slashes in here.

Here, let me try again:

/x01@/x0D

[color=#FF0000]NOTE: forward-slash above needs to be changed to back-slash. However, the forum won't let me put the back-slash in. It *eats* it.[/color]

Putting the slashes in fixed the issue.

I just purchased a license. Thanks
