    What's New in Version 5.7


    Version 5.7 contains many enhancements to the CETerm Scripting objects that provide a rich extension and customization environment.  We implement most new features via scripting to provide the greatest flexibility.  Here are some highlights of the new features and enhancements:


    • Signature Capture Object.  CETerm now contains a signature capture object that can create images of signatures or an array of coordinates for a compact representation.  The Signature Capture object is accessible via scripting and can be used by both web and terminal emulation sessions. See the CETerm Scripting Manual for complete details.
    • Digital Clock Display.
    • Extensive Additions to CETerm Scripting.
    • New Scripting Automation Objects.  Here is a list of the new automation objects in CETerm scripting:
    1. Device.SignatureCapture – Signature Capture control.
    2. Device.SmartCard – Contactless SmartCard (CASIO)
    3. Device.GPS – Access and control GPS device.
    4. OS.SIP – Soft Input Panel control.
    5. OS.Network.ConnectionManager – Network connection control.
    6. CETerm.Session(i).Screen – New scrolling controls added.
    • Additional Web Browser Extensions.  Our Industrial Web Browser has been fully featured for years.  Recent enhancements are mostly found through CETerm Scripting, but we have added a page progress indicator (Windows CE only) and improved the browser loading indicator.  We have added the ability to clear cache elements and save the source (Windows CE only).  META key actions can now be accessed and changed from scripting.  As expected, you can access all CETerm Scripting objects directly from HTML pages to control the device, peripherals, and application behavior.  It is truly the most robust platform to build web based Data Collection applications.  We continue to support legacy Symbol Pocket Browser and Intermec IBrowse Meta tags as well. The Web Browser is available for all Windows Mobile and Windows CE devices.
    • Installable Codepages for VT220.  CETerm now supports the installation of single-byte and double-byte code pages for VT220 that are not available from the native Windows “National Language Support” (NLS) on the device.  These code pages can also be customized for special applications.
    • IBM Emulation Enhancements.
    • More Network Awareness Features.
    • Barcode Scanner Control Improvements.
    • Additional Updates. In addition to dozens of other enhancements, we added support for new device platforms and current Windows CE versions from all major hardware vendors.
