Description

The Wavelink Emulator is released with default keymap assignments and some customers need the keys remapped for specific PDA's with limited keys.

Detail Steps

To determine the present scan code of the function key:

  1. From the “No Host Connection, Enter to connect” screen or from the login screen, you must press FUNC, CTRL, D to get the to the PROGRAM DIAGNOSTICS screen.
  2. Press K for Keyboard test.
  3. Press the key that you wish to have remapped (for example F7) and it will indicate what the scan code is for that key (F7 has a scan code of 4100 )


To determine the scan code to be assigned:

From the Keyboard test, press the key combination that you want assigned.
For example, if you wish to have F7 re-assigned to ESC key. (The scan code for ESC is 001B).


Now that you have the two scan code values, you must modify the configuration of the emulator and add aKEYMACRO. Choose the appropriate method for modification based on whether you are using ActiveSync or Avalanche, below:

  4. Insert the desired scan codes. For example to remap F7 to ESC, you would insert: 4100:\001B
  5. Save & exit the configurator.
  6. ActiveSync the new configuration to your terminal.
