  • Are you trying to automate an Emulator. If yes, which one?

  • K, I guess it's a 3270 screen

    When integrating a 3270 application, several options are available:
    If the emulator provides an HLLAPI interface, then this option is the best.
    If the emulator does not provide an HLLAPI then:
    1. You have to look if an automation API is available. I am not familiar with Blue zone but this should be documented
    2. You may consider HIS Session Integrator if you want to replace the UI of your 3270 screen
    3. Consider backend integration

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Could you please forward sample program or the url where I can get more detail information. I am new to CCF 2009. I have EHLLAPI.dll. I can make use of it.

    Thank you

  • Just create a hosted control (use the samples in the quickstarts)

    Make a reference to your EHLLAPI.dll (it will use interop), then it's straight forward..Here is an axample about opening a session, sendint text and press the ENTER button

            //in this scenario the session ID is A. This code will connect the HLLAPI API to the session
            uint result=EhllapiWrapper.Connect("A");
            //0=successfully connected
            if (result == 0)
                //Put the cursor in the right position
                //Write the username for DemoAgent2
                //There is no password
                //Press ENTER
