HP Transmit Functions

Most of the keys on the keyboard have an associated ASCII character. Several keys, however, perform functions for which there is no character defined; for example, Home and PgUp. Certain host software programs, such as HP Slate, need to be informed when you press one of these non-ASCII keys. Selecting this option signals the Host Integrator to inform the host system whenever you press one of these keys. When this check box is selected and the Design Tool is operating in character/remote mode, each time you press one of these keys the associated escape sequence is transmitted to the host.

Most applications that require this feature automatically send the escape sequences to enable and disable the feature, so you probably will never need to enable it manually.

 

This setting reflects the current terminal state, which can be changed by the host. The associated default setting, saved with the model, is HP Transmit Functions Default.
