The following list describes the information displayed in the status line of the 5250 Applet.


The session is in the indicated state: connected or disconnected. When menu items are highlighted, an explanation of the menu item is displayed.


These indicators are only true when red.

SA (System Available):

The AS/400 is operating and is available to the PC.

MW (Message Waiting):

The AS/400 has one or more messages for you.

KS (Keyboard Shift):

The keyboard is in shifted mode.

IM (Insert Mode):

Characters inserted into an existing field will not type over the existing data.

II (Input Inhibited):

Keyboard input is not being accepted by the AS/400. Try pressing ERROR RESET. If it is still highlighted, the system is processing your request.

KB (Keystroke Buffering):

Keystrokes are being saved in a temporary buffer (storage space), because keyboard input is not being accepted by the AS/400 (as indicated by the II indicator). After the II indicator goes off, the keystrokes will be processed. To clear the keystroke buffering, press ERROR RESET.


These indicators appear only when the applet is connected to the AS/400. The following are examples of system and device indicators:

S1011025     The name of the AS/400 you are connected to.
BHAMWAS1     The name of the active device.
