The AppLock program is part of the factory installed software load. HX2 AppLock is setup by the Administrator by tapping Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administration.
  • Page 80: Setup A New Device

    Setup a New Device Devices with the AppLock feature are shipped to boot in Administration mode with no default password, thus when the HX2 is first booted, the user has full access to the device and no password prompt is displayed. After the administrator specifies the applications to lock, a password is assigned and the device is rebooted or the hotkey is pressed, the device switches to end- user mode.
  • Page 81: Administration Mode

    Administration Mode Administration mode gives full access to the mobile device, hardware and software configuration options. The administrator must enter a valid password (when a password has already been assigned) before access to Administration mode and configuration options are allowed. The administrator can configure the following options: Create/change the keystroke sequence to activate administrator access.
  • Page 82: End User Mode

    End User Mode End-user mode locks the end-user into the configured application or applications. The end user can still reboot and respond to dialog boxes. Each application is automatically launched and runs in full screen mode when the device boots up. The user cannot unintentionally or intentionally exit the application nor can the end user execute any other applications.
  • Page 83: End-user Switching Technique

    A checkmark indicates applications currently active or available for Launching by the user. When Keyboard is selected, the HX2 default input method (Input Panel, Transcriber, or custom input method) is activated. The check to the left of the application name indicates that the application is active.
  • Page 84: Using The Switch Key Sequence

    Using the Switch Key Sequence One switch key sequence (or hotkey) is defined by the administrator for the end-user to use when switching between locked applications. This is known as the Activation key. The Activation key is assigned by the Administrator using the Global Key parameter.
  • Page 85: Application Configuration

    Application Configuration The default Administrator Hotkey sequence is Shift+Ctrl+A. Administrator mode allows access to all features on the device. When the hotkey is pressed to switch into Administrator mode, a password prompt is displayed (if a password has been configured). A password must be entered within 30 seconds (and within three tries) or the password prompt is removed and the device remains in end-user mode with the focus returned to the locked application.

    Manual (Launch) Default is Disabled. Enabling this option allows the end-user to launch the specified application(s). Upon bootup completion an application with Manual enabled is listed on the Switchpad accompanied by a checkmark that indicates the application is currently active or available for Launching. When an application name is tapped by the end-user, the application is launched (if inactive) and brought to the foreground.
  • Page 91: Allow Close

    Allow Close Default is Disabled. When enabled, the associated application can be closed by the end-user. This option allows the administrator to configure applications that consume system resources to be terminated if an error condition occurs or at the end-user’s request. Error conditions may generate a topmost popup requiring an end-user response, memory resource issues requiring an end-user response, etc.
  • Page 92: Match

    Match Match Default is blank (match is not used). AppLock works by associating display windows with the launched process ID. If an application uses different process IDs for windows it creates, the Match field must be used. Use the Match field to specify up to 32 characters of the class name for the application. For example: DOS applications using a standard DOS display box should specify condev_appcls in the Match textbox.

    Options Panel AppLock contains several types of delays and timeouts to accommodate different applications. Please note that the delays specified on the Launch panel are delays before AppLock attempts to start the specified application(s). The timeouts specified on this panel are delays after AppLock has attempted to launch the application. Launch timeout This timeout specifies the period of time for AppLock to wait for the application to initially launch after the application has been called.
