New Features and Resolved Issues

This release includes the version 16.0 features and fixes, as described in KB 7021849, plus the following additional features and fixes.

Key Improvements

  • Performance has been improved when loading multiple sessions or a layout file when the Reflection Workspace is configured for Centralized Management (using Micro Focus Host Access Management and Security Server, http://support.microfocus.com/product/?prod=MSS).
  • It is now possible to configure hotspots in unprotected fields if the session was created using the legacy InfoConnect session template.

API, Automation, or Macro issues

  • The “View.Closing” event will not be repeatedly fired when the InfoConnect Workspace is closed.
  • “Productivity” features that monitor keystrokes or record screen history are now disabled while a VBA macro runs, so that macro performance will be improved.
  • The “SessionFilePath” property has been added to the UTS/T27 and ALC terminal API objects.
  • The “IsPolling” property has been added to UTS terminal object.
  • A macro configured to run when InfoConnect starts will now execute correctly when multiple sessions are started from a layout file.

Other Resolved Issues

  • InfoConnect host sessions now load more quickly when using a redirected “My Documents” folder with “Offline files enabled”. Previously the InfoConnect Workspace would load quickly but the session settings file might appear to hang on load for 30 seconds to several minutes, depending on the environment.
  • The T27 session auto-complete feature will work even if the current field spans two lines.
  • UTS sessions will refresh display properly when the window is restored from maximized state.
  • Legacy InfoConnect sessions will now retain keyboard map selection after upgrading to InfoConnect Desktop 16.0.
