DECTABSR—Tab Stop Report

The terminal sends this sequence to the host in response to a request presentation state report (DECRQPSR) sequence. DECTABSR informs the host of the terminal's current tab settings.

Programming Tip
Applications can use information in the tab stop report to save the current tab stops. Later, the application can restore the saved tab stops.

This operation is useful for applications that need to temporarily change the terminal's tab stops. When the application is finished, it can restore the tab stops that were in effect before the application changed them. You use the restore presentation state (DECRSPS) function to restore tab stops. Refer to DECRSPS—Restore Presentation State for additional information.
