Control Terminal Action—Setting Properties

The Control Terminal action is used to change the properties of an active terminal session. The terminal session must be created in an earlier step using the Connect Terminal action.

To set Control Terminal properties

  1. From the Task Builder Available Actions pane, open the Terminal folder and double-click the Control Terminal action or drag it into the Steps pane.

  2. In the Action box, select Show terminal window, Hide terminal window, Clear terminal window, or Set cursor position.

  3. If the action is Set cursor position, enter the cursor row and column in the applicable boxes.

  4. In the Session name box, enter the session name. If your task has only one terminal session and you did not change the default session name when you created it (recommended), you can use the default entry.

  5. To set the Description tab properties, refer to Description Tab Options.

  6. To set the Error Causes and On Error tab properties, refer to Step Error Handling.

  7. When finished, click OK to save settings and close the properties dialog window.
