Notes on Using This Function

  1. The Wait function is used to give host requests like those made by the Send Key (3) function the time required to be completed. Using the Set Session Parameters (9) function, you can request the TWAIT, LWAIT, or the NWAIT option. See item 12.
  2. You can use this function to see if the host OIA is inhibited.
  3. The Wait function is satisfied by the host unlocking the keyboard. Therefore, a return code of 0 does not necessarily mean that the transaction has been completed. To verify completion of the transaction, you should use the Search Field (30) function or Search Presentation Space (6) function combined with the Wait function to look for expected keyword prompts.
