E1078: Gweb, f-keys in browser could not be used as f-keys

Product: Gweb
Platform: All
Status: Fixed/enhanced for 6.2.1. Fix available for R6.2.0. MSIE only
Last updated: 2005-09-30 12:00:52

The F-keys in the browser have default functions, most noticeably the
F1-key calls the browser help.

Because of this Gweb has assigned the F-key functions for the terminal
emulations to Alt/1 etc.

We have discovered a method of cancelling the default actions of the
F-keys in Microsoft Internet Explorer only, inluding the F1 key which
requires special handling. Enabling the f-keys to be used for the F-key

The fix/enhancement consists of a new gweb.js, gwebkbd,js and a -jsbody
parameter that must be added to the default section of gweb.cfg in order
to activate a new event handler for the body tag.

The fix is available as fkeys.zip. The Javascripts are for the browser,
rather than Gweb itself, and so the fix will be added to the fixes for
all platforms. As usual a fix is only available to customers with a
service contract.

Netscape etc. are still under study, but we have found no solution at
this time.
