    Fantastic! That was a very fast update! Sorry for the delayed reply – time zones 😉

    Some more 1st impressions for you:

    1. I like the hide config option – this is better for taking screen-grabs of com outputs for use in blogs etc. If I need a COM terminal output in any of my future blogs/documents I will use your application 🙂

    2. I can’t seem to send new line characters. Am I doing something wrong? I tried checking & unchecking CRLF but it didn’t seem to make any difference. For example, if I put a loop-back on my serial port and type “hellohello” the com shows “hellohello” on the terminal regardless of whether or not CRLF is checked.

    3. The echo now works as I was expecting – great! Except for the fact that there are no new lines, but that is probably related to point 2.

    4. I have had a quick play with the logging and so far it seems to work well. I will try some more extensive logging when I get home and let you know how it goes.

    5. I couldn’t seem to get the send text file option working. When I try to send a simple text file (with just the text “hello world” in it, I get an exception. Also, I noticed that the same exception (with the same exception message) occurs even if I don’t select any text file but I select cancel instead. The exception message I see is:

    System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type ‘System.Windows.Forms.TextBox’ to type ‘System.IConvertible’.

    6. It would be good if the text file didn’t have to have a .txt extension. Sometimes, for example, I use .dat files but they just have ascii text in them. Or sometimes I use files that have no extension at all.

    7. What is the time entry box (default 250mS) for?

    RE point 2: I did type hello(enter)hello(enter) in my comment but I use brackets so the comments system took out my “enter” descriptions and printed it as “hellohello”. Sorry for the confusion. Here is point 2 again without the confusion:

      Hmm, again it took out my pointed brackets! Okay no problem – I will not use any pointed brackets in your site comments. But I think my point is now clear anyway 🙂

    🙂 Thanks for the reply again, ill take a look at those issues… The time entry is for line delay… some PIC/ARM devices i create can only handle a certain amount of data at a time or depend on 1 line, then perform a action then another line and perform a action, where the action may take a few hundred ms to perform. Thanks and expect a fix today.

    • brianjhoskins says :

      Ah okay yes – I understand about the PIC/ARM interfacing. That’s useful.

      I will continue to use your terminal program and I’ll feed back any weird behaviour if/when it crops up.

      Cheers!

      Brian.

        As a side note you can set to 0 and it will not delay at all. I had some PC issues (C# would not open) but im back in now… and ill get working on the above fixes.

        Thank You! for testing and using and basically helping out. 🙂
