iOS 7 Compatibility

Friday, September 20th, 2013

iOS 7 introduced a number of changes. This causes TinyTERM ITX products — TinyTERM Enterprise, TinyTERM Pro, TinyTERM ITX 2, TinyTERM ITX 3270 and TinyTERM ITX 5250 — to behave differently than under prior iOS versions. In addition to cosmetic issues stemming from the look-and-feel changes in iOS 7, the following issues have been identified:

  • The title bar at the top of the screen overlaps the status bar.
  • The content window, emulator or browser, is 20 pixels too short.
  • The top iPhone configuration color selector displays behind the title bar.
  • Enabling certain Debug Settings can cause an application exception.
  • Username and password popups don’t accept input, requiring that these items be saved in the configuration.
  • The Connect button fails after changing the printer settings from within the configuration.
  • Bluetooth devices such as keyboards and scanners drop characters.
  • With Hide Title Bar turned on, the “show titlebar” arrow overlaps the status bar.
  • Print alignment is incorrect in some jobs.

Note that development on TinyTERM for iPad v1.2.5 and TinyTERM ITX for iPhone v1.0.2 ended in June 2012. These products will not be updated for iOS 7 compatibility.

Wyse50 Doesn’t Clear Screen Properly

Monday, January 21st, 2013

In TinyTERM ITX 2, Wyse50 emulation does not always clear the screen as it should. This leaves characters behind from previous screens, causing display problems with new screen display.

keyChar Values 281-283 Send Incorrect Character

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

When creating a keyboard layout for any TinyTERM ITX product, keyChar values 281-283 no longer represent the numbers 0-2 on the numeric keypad. Instead they produce the letters v, s and t respectively. The correct keyChar values for the numeric keypad are:

AirPrint Transparent Print Uses Extra Pages

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

When using AirPrint for a transparent print job, a full 80-character line that ends in a carriage return/line feed pair (CRLF) is counted as two lines, even though it prints as one. This throws off the page length counter, causing the print job to feed a new page before it’s needed.

Ctrl-J Sent to Host as Ctrl-M

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

TinyTERM ITX 2 and TinyTERM Pro for iOS both convert all Ctrl-J characters (ASCII 10) sent from the on-screen keyboard to Ctrl-M (ASCII 13) before sending them to the host. This change was made deliberately for customers who prefer the standard iPad keyboard. However, there is no way to revert this behavior if the ^J character is needed.

CR 1101, fixed in March 2013 releases

Text Zooms After Scan

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

In TinyTERM Pro for iPhone, use the keyboard scan key to scan a bar code  in landscape mode. On returning to TinyTERM Pro, the text size is at maximum. This happens with any other function that resets the keyboard and display also.

German Code Page Support

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

TinyTERM ITX 3270 for iOS does not currently include code page support. Century Software, Inc., has received a request to add multinational code page support, in particular German.

Siri Integration

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

No TinyTERM ITX product currently uses Siri for text dictation. Siri is very good at interpreting natural language. However, a typical shell prompt does not accept standard text. Adding Siri support to TinyTERM will require the ability to parse commands along these lines:

ls -lR | grep .obj | more

Clear Screen Capability on iOS

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

No TinyTERM ITX product has a user-driven clear screen capability at present. The host system must clear the screen. Century Software has received a request to add an option to clear the screen on demand.

keyHeight Should Not Be Used at Beginning of Row

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

All TinyTERM for iOS products support the creation of custom keyboard layouts. When creating a custom layout, the keyboard key at the beginning of a row sets the default height value for the entire row. As such, using the keyHeight argument in the definition of the first key in a row changes the height for all subsequent keys. This causes display problems with the keyboard: either rows that are too short, or blank rows next to keys that are supposed to overlap the next row instead.

The workaround is to insert a thin blank key of standard height at the beginning of the row:
