For business I am still working on the AS400 legacy system. Is anyone aware if these have the ability to use or have F Keys? I am not sure the Ipad or xoom or any of them can, but am hoping. If not I might as well stay with my laptop.
Can you map the key board or download anther key board that has F-Keys?
Not that I am aware of. And since AS400 relies so heavily on Fn keys, you might be out of luck. However, if you or anyone finds a keyboard that provides Fn key abilities or at least the mapping capabilities to do so, please post it here. I'd be curious to see that myself since I still work in some legacy systems from time to time requiring use of the Fn keys.
The TinyTERM for iPad app, an emulator, has (working) Fn keys. I have installed and used this on the iPad. I used Century Software's terminal emulator TinyTERM on the PC many years ago and found it to be one of the best available. Their iPad emulator is the best I have used on a tablet.
Now if I could only get one for my Android phone (HTC Evo 4G)...
From what I've noticed, the problem is that the Ctrl key is not supported on the Android. Since F1 is actually Ctrl + \, F2 is Ctrl + ], F3 is Ctrl + ^, F4 is Ctrl + _, etc... it's not possible to program these keys if the OS doesn't support Ctrl. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I think that's why I haven't found an emulator which supports these keys for the Android.
