Pega Robotics Studio Text Adapter Emulator Session OIA.Xstatus?

Good morning,

I am developing a robotic solution that opens a Reflection Workspace emulator (IBM 3270 Terminal) and navigates several screens and takes many actions. On one of the screens, I am performing a hostkey/sendkey action and I need to wait until the session has stopped processing.

Unfortunately, this could take a varying amount of time depending on the processing required (anywhere from 500 milliseconds to 45 seconds or more). The screen will not change so I cannot wait for create on a screen. When I automated with emulators using visual basic, we could always detect the session screen's OIA.Xstatus and wait for a certain status after using sendkeys.

Is there any way Pega robotics studio can detect this OIA.XStatus and wait for it to be 0 before continuing? Do I need to add specific references to the application adapter or perhaps the text adapter?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
