Error description

  • Headline/Abstract:
    CTRL key mapped to Enter is sent to all Host Connect  windows in
    Rational Developer for System z
    
    APAR Error Description:
    
    Abstract:
    When a RDz client maps a  CTRL key to Enter function, and has
    more than one Host Connect emulator windows open, then pressing
    the CTRL key in one window has the effect
    of sending the Enter function to the other windows as well.
    
    Error Description:
    
    To create the problem
    1. Using Windows-?Preferences-?Generel-?Keys-?Host Connection
    Control Keys to Enable CtRL key to Enter mapping
    2. Open two Host Connect windows
    3. Press CTRL while one of the windows is in focus
    
    Observe that the other window has also received the Enter.
    
    
    Local fix:
    Do not use CTRL if more than one host connect windows are in
    use. Use the keyboard Enter key instead.
