    Follow these steps to sequence IDA codes to create a mini-macro.



    Internally within CETerm, every application operation has an associated ID Action (or IDA) codes defined. These IDA codes can be chained serially to force a sequence of events (which is a mini macro). This sequence of events can be remapped to any key.
    All supported IDA codes are listed in an Appendix in the User's Manual.

    You can define the mini macro (sequence of IDA codes) in a User Text. To create your mini macro follow these steps:

    • Go to [Session] -> [Configure] -> Options tab -> Config KeyBars and Keys -> User Text tab
    • Enter your IDA sequences for "Text n" entries, where "n" is 1 through 65. The syntax is demonstrated via the following examples:

                       Text 1: \IDA_SESSION_S1\\IDA_SLEEP_5000\\IDA_SESSION_CONNECT\ 

                       Text 2: \IDA_SESSION_DISCON_ALL\\IDA_PROGRAM_EXIT\

    • Now you can remap "Text n" to any applicaction, hardware or keybar key. Refer to articke KB1126 for key remapping details.
