WaitForCursorAtAttr "Entity", "Attribute", "Timeout"


Begins a wait that is satisfied when the specified attribute data is received from the host. The operation containing the command is paused until the wait expires or is satisfied.

Use WaitForCursorAtAttr only if you are connecting to your host using a host application that uses character mode rather than block mode. (In character mode, incoming characters appear on screen in sequence, and existing lines of text scroll out of sight as new lines appear. In block mode, you see complete screen displays, beginning with the login display screen.) You can also record a login command list to determine which command is appropriate for your connection.

Command Parameters

Entity Argument type: String
  The entity on which the attribute is defined.
Attribute Argument type: String
  The attribute data that can terminate the wait.
Timeout Argument type: String
  Specifies an interval of time in HH:MM:SS format that can terminate the wait. If this method times out, an error occurs.
