DBCS

On the Rendering tab you can configure the following DBCS options for your project if your default connection specifies a DBCS code page.
Show unprotected Shift Out/Shift In characters as spaces
Select this box to display unprotected Shift Out and Shift In characters as spaces in the GUI for DBCS mix, DBCS open (O), DBCS only (J), and DBCS either (E) fields. If not selected, SO/SI characters are not displayed in the GUI.
Automatically convert SBCS characters to DBCS for G-type and J-type fields
Select this box if you want to automatically convert single byte characters to double byte characters for 3270 and 3270E G-type or 5250 G-type and J-type fields.
Eliminate maximum length in DBCS fields

If not selected, then characters that exceed the maximum length of the DBCS field cannot be entered into the IME.

If selected, then
  • If the Enable automatic field advance setting in the Project settings editor on the Rendering tab in the Client Settings section is selected, then characters that exceed the maximum length of the DBCS field can be entered into the IME. Also, when the user selects the IME candidate for the field, the excess characters are cut and pasted into the next field.
  • If the Enable automatic field advance setting is not selected, then characters that exceed the length of the DBCS field can be entered into the IME. However, when the user selects the IME candidate for the field, the excess characters are removed and not entered into any other field.
This setting is supported for the following field types:
  • 3270
    • DBCS mix
    • DBCS only (G)
  • 5250
    • DBCS only (J)
    • DBCS graphic (G)
    • DBCS either (E)
    • DBCS open (O)
Note:
  1. This setting is available only for DBCS code pages in Web projects.
  2. This setting is supported only for Internet Explorer.
