technology for the Clearpath from the developers of Open/A®...
cutting-edge technology that is supported by a large number of
the most popular development platforms and applications. Its
flexibility and ease of use allows for application development
at speeds not obtainable from other technologies. The Asgard
Connectivity Suite™ is a set of ActiveX®
controls specifically designed to meet the needs of Unisys®
Clearpath users and programmers. The suite consists of a
T27 Emulation ActiveX® control, a file transfer
ActiveX® control, a TCP/IP communications ActiveX®
control, and a T27 printer ActiveX® control. Both 16
and 32 bit controls are available. They connect directly to the
Clearpath with no gateway required, and allow for all
communications parameters to be configured easily through
control properties. Included are online help files, Delphi
examples, Visual Basic examples, Microsoft C++ examples, HTML
examples, and pre-packaged files for downloading from the
Internet/Intranet. Additionally, all of the controls work with
Internet Explorer, Netscape, Visual Basic, Delphi, Visual C++,
Access, and many other programming environments.
Emulation ActiveX® control is a full
featured emulator. The control provides asynchronous TCP/IP
operation, with your choice of ComSock or Unisys protocols, and
optional persistent connections which allow the connection to
stay open when the application exits. It drops into Internet
Explorer and Netscape with no additional software needed.
Configuration, keyboard maps, and scripts may be loaded from
local files or remote files on the Internet/Intranet.
Additionally, it supports programmable keys, imports other
popular emulator keyboard maps, contains an optional built-in
status bar, and performs high quality color printing.
By providing built-in
configuration dialog boxes and more than 200 methods,
properties, and events, this control provides for total
programming flexibility and fast application development.
Support for mouse navigation through forms screens, clipboard
support, OLE drag and drop support, optional automatic font
or VBScript under the control of your application will maximize
File Transfer ActiveX® control provides
fast asynchronous file transfers to and from the Clearpath. It
supports text, binary, code, and compiler file transfers, and
allows reading and setting of appropriate Clearpath attributes.
More than 50 methods, properties, and events , full support for
Clearpath security, and asynchronous operation make this control
a powerful programming tool. For increased performance, the
Clearpath server component is written in DCALGOL.
Communications ActiveX® control provides
for asynchronous TCP/IP operation, with your choice of raw,
ComSock, or Unisys® protocols. It supports client
and server communications and its optional persistent
connections allow the connection to stay open when your
application exits. It contains more than 20 methods, properties,
Printer ActiveX® control allows you to
customize high quality pass-through printing. It also provides
asynchronous TCP/IP operation, with your choice of ComSock or
Unisys® protocols. It contains more than 50 methods,
properties, and events.
Asgard Connectivity Suite™
not only replaced our current emulator, but allowed us to do
many things that were previously impossible."
