TN3270 Emulator Numeric SessionID
We are trying to work with TN3270 emulator, the problem we are facing is on the generic winhllapi we are unable to set the appropriate sessionID because in Pega robotics the session ID combobox is having only the Alphabets(i.e A,B,..Z) but the terminal we are using is having the Numeric SessionID(i.e 1,2,..99). How to handle this.

HLLAPI uses A-Z as the short session name. I am not sure what the "1" is for in your screenshot except maybe the window title. Would you please you take a screenshot of the API settings and what the short session name is? The version of the emulator you are using may not support HLLAPI and might not have that setting. If that is the case, you'd need a new emulator.
I have not worked with this emulator (at least I don't remember anyway). If it supports HLLAPI and you provide the text adapter the correct short session name and the correct HLLAPI dll, then it should connect in my experience. I can't really provide you instructions on the specific emulator though as that information should come from that vendor. I would ask your TN3270 vendor where and how to set the HLLAPI short session name.
