Typing Input into a Terminal Emulator

Two TE Vuser functions enable Vusers to "type" character input into the PowerTerm terminal emulator:

  • TE_type sends characters to the terminal emulator. When recording, the VuGen automatically generates TE_type functions for keyboard input to the terminal window. For details, see below.

  • TE_typing_style determines the speed at which the Vuser types. You can manually define the typing style by inserting a TE_typing_style function into the Vuser script. Alternatively, you can set the typing style by using the runtime settings. For more information, see Runtime Settings Overview.

    Note: While recording an RTE Vuser script, do not use the mouse to relocate the cursor within the terminal emulator window. VuGen does not record these cursor movements.
