Distinct Itelliterm 32 Ver. 7.0
WinBatch Ver. 2003F
Here is a snippet of the code:
------------------------------------ ;ehllapi extender addextender("C:\Program Files\WinBatch\terminal_emulator_extender\WWHLL34I.DLL") ; Load the DISTINCT Mainframe HLLAPI Dll and uses the Enhanced interface specs. ehllapiInit("C:\Program Files\Distinct\ehllap32.dll",'',1) ------------------------------------I get this error everytime I run it.
"WIL Extender Error: 102: Enhanced HLLAPI Extender: Error initializing the HLLAPI Dll.On Line:
ehllapiinit("C:\Program Files\Distinct\ehllapi32.dll",'',1)I have tried all the different combinations of the personality flags and get the same error.
I checked in the help files of Distinct and this is the correct dll to use for Enhanced HLLAPI. I have assigned a short session name to the session profile that I am loading and attempting to connect to. API settings are global in Distinct and I have it set to Attachtmate EHLLAPI compatibility mode, the other option is IRMA compatibility. Haven't tried anything with it yet.
If anyone has any ideas for me to try or has examples of working code I would certainly be interested. I am a beginner i n WinBatch(as I am sure you can see from my code), but am certainly willing to learn.
In looking through the the knowledgebase articles about Intelliterm. The documentation indicates that the EHLLAPI interface in Intelliterm is compatible with the Attachmate Extra! EHLLAPI implementation. The first thing I'd try is to set up the EHLLAPI extender to behave as if it is using Attachmate and see what happens. The personality flag bit value for Attachmate is 4. The choice for standard or enhanced HLLAPI data structures would be to bit-wise "OR" either zero [16-bit] or one [32-bit] with the flag value for Attachmate.
ehllapiInit("C:\Program Files\Distinct\ehllap32.dll","",1 | 4)If that does not resolve it, dependency walker also has a "profile" mode where you run tour prgram from inside of dependency walker (getting the parameters correct may be "interesting") and it produces a log file of various DLL actions. Sometimes clues may be found in the log file.
;ehllapi extender addextender("C:\Program Files\WinBatch\terminal_emulator_extender\WWHLL34I.DLL") ; Load the DISTINCT Mainframe HLLAPI Dll and uses the Enhanced interface specs. DirChange("C:\Program Files\Distinct\") ehllapiInit("C:\Program Files\Distinct\ehllap32.dll",'HLLAPI32',5)
And guess what..NO ERROR MESSAGE!!(please excuse my enthusiasm.) the ehllapiconnectPS also works with no error message.
See, you have experienced yet another one of the inconsistencies in how EHLLAPI is implemented by various terminal emulator vendors' products. IBM's own EHLLAPI specifications state that the function name will be "hllapi" in lower case. However, it looks like Distinct has chosen to deviate from that particular part of the specification.
For more basic testing, call ehllapiGetWindowStatus() after you call ehllapiConnectPS(). Verify that things like the size of the window in rows & columns matches up properly. If the values don't look correct, then a lot of other ehllapi*() functions will probably fail to function properly.
