HTML DDS keyword

Using the HTML DDS keyword in IBM® i display files allows the sending of HTML fragments along with the 5250 data stream. This feature is not intended for display with standard emulation programs; it is only sent to 5250 Workstation Gateway devices, and host access products such as ZIETrans, that have been enhanced to show this HTML data in a browser

HTML DDS is available as a component when the host type is specified as 5250. The use of this component is not part of the default rendering and must be added to either the default rendering or custom transformations, if needed.

The HTML DDS Keyword component is responsible for recognizing this HTML data if it is present in the 5250 data stream

This component can be rendered using the Label widget.

The following settings can be configured for this component:
Ignore DDS data using filter
Click this button if you want to recognize the DDS data as it was sent in the 5250 data stream, or as it was sent except for those tags which are specified by these "ignore" filters.
Ignore these tags
Enter any tags (without the < and > characters) that you want to ignore. The data between the tag and its end tag is kept. For example, specify a <b>b</b> if you wanted to keep some data surrounded by the bold tags, but not the tag itself.
Ignore all DDS data in these tags
Enter any tags (without the < and > characters) for which you want to ignore the data between the tag and its end tag.
Accept DDS data using filter
Click this button if you want to recognize, from the HTML DDS data in the 5250 data stream, only the HTML tags which pass these "accept" filters. HTML DDS data which doesn't pass these filters is ignored.
Accept these tags
Enter any tags (without the < and > characters) that you want to keep. The data between the tag and its end tag is ignored
Accept all DDS data in these tags
Enter any tags (without the < and > characters) for which you want to keep the data between the tag and its end tag.
You can include a keyword, HTML, which will allow you to embed raw HTML data into the data stream for interpretation only by browser-like recipients. This support in ZIETrans will enable data that is sent from a host application in the HTML DDS keyword to be used in either default rendering or custom transformation.
To enable HTML DDS keyword support for a connection definition, take the following steps:
  1. Open the Connection Editor by clicking your main ZIETrans connection in the ZIETrans Projects view.
  2. Select the Advanced tab and click the Add button to configure an advanced connection setting.
  3. Select HTMLDDS for Name from the drop-down list and type in true in the Value field.
  4. Click OK.
