Dialog: Edit Send Sequence
The index of the sequence displayed below. The first sequence has index 0 (zero).
1 - Name
Unique name for this sequence (e.g. "Set modem speaker volume"). This name is for referencing the sequence. It is not the data that will be sent out through the serial port. See "2 - Sequence" below.
2 - Sequence
The character sequence that will be transmitted through the serial port.
3 - Additional Settings
•Repeat - Check the "Send periodically..." option to define a sequence that is sent periodically. A time interval between 0.01 seconds and 9999 seconds can be specified.
NOTE: The Windows reference time used for this purpose has only limited precision. Time intervals < 0.03 seconds will usually not be accurate.
•Checksum - Perform automatic calculation of any type of checksum, including any type of CRC standard such as MODBUS, CCITT, CRC32.
Wildcards can be used to introduce parameters into a Send Sequence that you wish to insert manually each time the sequence is sent. See section Sending commands with parameters for details and examples.
Control Character Shortcuts
Using keyboard shortcuts is a great help when editing a sequence that contains both printing characters (letters A-z, digits 0-9, ...) and non-printing control characters (ASCII code 0 to 31). Predefined shortcuts are:
Ctrl+Enter for carriage return / <CR> / decimal code 13
Ctrl+Shift+Enter for line feed / <LF> / decimal code 10
Use Options... --> Control Character Shortcuts to define other shortcuts you find useful.
