Pinned topic 5250 Host Connection Emulator 27x132?

‏2018-06-14T15:33:04Z | 5250 emulator

I haven't been using RDI long and saw an article today that showed how to open a 5250 emulation window within RDI.

Very useful I thought, and while I am aware that you have to define the key mappings, one thing I can't find is whether it's possible to change the width from 80 columns to 132.

In Client Access (which I have been using for more years than I care to remember) I normally set my sessions to 27x132 rather than 24x80, which saves having to scroll left and right.

Is this possible in the RDI emulator?

Thanks in advance.

    Yes it is possible

    if you go to the Host Properties tab of the emulator editor (on the bottom of the editor)

    Screen Size is one of the properties.

    Well blow me down with a feather!

    I looked at the properties tab yesterday and scrolled it up and down and just couldn't see the screen size property.

    But it was there this morning! I secretly think someone upgraded RDI overnight...

    Thanks for the help, it's all working now. Just had to disconnect and reconnect to get the size to change (same as Client Access).
