Crosslines support in cursor

Postby slefeber » Fri Dec 31, 2010 11:19 pm

Hi,

I saw a post from a few years ago asking how to turn crosslines off. I'm wondering how to turn them on.

Right now I'm running tn3270 on Mac OS X, and WC3270 on Windows XP. Is there a setting for either of those that would turn them on, a different emulator I could get, or a different terminal type I would need to emulate?

Thanks in advance,
Steve

crossline cursor support depends on the emulator being used
if supported You should be able to turn it on/off following the procedure used for other cursor preferences ( underline/block/and friends)

tn3270x ( brown' s university 3270 emulator ) does not support it!

Would you be able to give me an example of an emulator that does?

QWS3270

Every once in a while I turn them on by accident, and it's always a struggle to figure out how to turn them off!
