Question

How Do I Create a Key-Macro Using a Custom Escape Sequence in Wavelink?

Facts

The escape value always needs to be a four digit HEX value. The remaining characters can be symbols, numbers or letters. You cannot use just 1B, you have to have 001B. The \ indicates that you are using a HEX value. The following would also work: 3B00:\001B\005B\0032\0038\007E F1 = ESC [ 2 8 ~

Answer

The format for creating a Key-Macro as a custom escape sequence is the same for AirBEAM, Avalanche, or ActiveSync WaveLink Emulation Packages.  Obtain the four digit HEX value for the key that you want to re-map.  This can be done by going in to Diagnostics within the emulation software.  Go in to Keyboard Test and press the key that you want to re-map.

Example:  F1 = 3B00
Example of Custom Escape Sequence:  ESC[28~

KeyMacro would be:  3B00:\001B[28~

We see 001B is ESC
  1. To set the Key Macro go to the Wavelink Cionfiguration Manager and go to Emulation Parameters

  3. Enter the string sequence
  4. Hit OK
  5. Then go to the Task Bar and hit FILE then SAVE
