Flash to serial probs with serialnetinterface (Read 3485 times)

Hi all

Have been working on a project in Flash to control an external lighting control board using serialnetinterface, but have come across a problem that I hope someone will be able to help me with.

The board requires specific strings to be sent in the format #0016006387: (example turns on led 1) but when I send the string through to the serialnetinterface and check the serial traffic the string is sent as a number of single character messages rather than one long string. I am using the code supplied at http://people.interaction-ivrea.it/h.barragan/flashserialinterface.html

This whole area is new to me, so please go gentle on me if it's something blindingly obvious.

Thanks in advance!

A string is made out of seperate characters with a special character at the end.
This special charater is a ascii# 0.
It's perfectly normal for a string to be send as a sequence of chars.
If you connect a program like hyperterminal to your serialport you should be able to see that it is forming a normal stringlike sequence.

I hope this helps you out.
