The User Defined Tab

This tab allows any functional key to be programmed with a user-defined sequence. User-defined keys (UDKs) are a subset of functional keys.

The UDK group box contains a list box with currently defined keys for a current emulation mode. This box allows you to map key symbols to the Unshifted, Shifted, Mode Switched, and Shift-Mode Switched states of the key. You can select a key symbol and then clear (with the Clear button), define or re-define its function value (in the Definition edit field).

You can use UDKs like a macro defined for a functional key: whenever you want to forward a user-defined control string to a host you press the key combination to activate the value. (Also see the List Assigned Functions dialog box in the Keyboard Mapping option below for already defined functional keys.)

Note: some function key combinations are reserved by MS Windows and cannot be redefined.

Upon terminating Telnet sessions or pressing OK, UDKs are stored in the terminfo.ini file (in the emulation mode section; see Appendix B for details), so they will be defaults for the next session when the file will be read in.

Lock against future definition

Use this check box to lock/unlock UDKs listed against future redefinition (from a remote host).


This edit field is used to enter new control string codes for UDKs. The string can include any combination of escape sequences, control sequences, or text (without any separating character). The string should be in valid format for the terminal emulation mode. You can scroll the field left or right as needed to allow longer strings to be entered.


This button assigns the value entered in the Definition field to the UDK currently selected in the list box (for the current terminal emulation mode). This key combination will activate the value whenever it is pressed.


This button removes a value for a currently selected UDK.

Clear All

Click this button to delete the mapping for all UDKs listed.


Pressing OK saves current UDK settings and quits the dialog box.


You can cancel any changes you made to the dialog box by clicking on this button.
