DoSubOption Property

A Telnet SubOption to send to the server with the SubOption command.

Syntax


 telnet.setDoSubOption( doSubOption_Buffer, [callback])

Default Value

""

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for the getDoSubOption([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err, buffer){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'buffer' is the value returned by the method.

The callback for the setDoSubOption([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

For a list of valid Telnet suboptions and their descriptions please look at the Telnet RFCs.

You don't need to specify the suboption start and suboption end codes. Those are appended automatically by the class. For example, to send a terminal type suboption to request setting the terminal type to 'vt100', you must send ASCII 24, followed by ASCII 0, followed by "vt100" (without the quotes).

This property is write-only and not available at design time.

Data Type
