Type

Since configuring type options is possible for both attributes and recordset fields, select either the Attribute Properties tab or the Recordset Fields tab to view the Type box. These options allow you to specify whether or not data can be accessed by one of the Host Integrator connectors. If both Read and Write are cleared, the Host Integrator will reject any attempt to save the entity.

The choices include the following:

Read
Select this check box to allow Host Integrator to read the host data contained in this attribute or recordset field at runtime. By default, this option is selected if protected fields exist on the entity. Note: The Read check box should not be selected if the attribute or recordset field contains or is to contain secure information such as a password.

Write
Select this check box to allow Host Integrator to write host data to this attribute or recordset field at runtime. This check box is available even when an attribute or field is not writable to cover cases the protected state can change dynamically based on the data sent from the host.

Note: When configuring a write attribute, do not use the Any Row or Any Column to specify start position or end position.

Hidden
Select this check box to hide the existence of the attribute or recordset field from one of the Host Integrator connectors.
Enable terminal attributes
Select this check box to make terminal attributes accessible from a Host Integrator connector.

Note: You must select this check box to enable and read terminal attributes using one of the Host Integrator APIs, specifically when using the EnableTerminalAttributes method. Search for "EnableTerminalAttributes" in the Host Integrator API Reference for more information.
