Key Sequence Task Properties

Display Name (required)

Enter a display name for object.



Click the color picker button in the display name text box to select a color. In the User Interface settings you can configure to show the color in the navigation tree, the connection tab or as connection border.



Click the icon picker button next in the display name text box to select and assign a custom icon to the object.


Enter a description for the object.


Execution Mode

Some connection types may provide a different way to send key sequences (Direct Mode). For example, the Rebex based Terminal connection allows to send commands directly to the server - which might be faster and not error prone to user interference. Choose one of the following options for the key sequence task:


No confirmation required

If checked, tasks executed from the Favorite Key Sequence Tasks menu do not show the Task Context confirmation window.


You should only check this option for simple and harmless tasks, such as PING. Tasks which can cause damage if executed for the wrong selection (such as a reboot) should not have checked this option.

A task executed from the Navigation panel or Tasks panel always requires confirmation, regardless of the setting.
