Docklight Scripting offers two ways to control the transmit data timing: 1) Use the DL_OnSend() event procedure for additional processing on every Send Sequence before it is actually transmitted. The sample script below splits the Send Sequence into individual characters and transmits them using a user-defined pause between the characters. (The sample can be used with the evaluation version of Docklight Scripting.) 2) Use a so-called “function character” to introduce an additional delay at certain character positions of a Send Sequence.
