Status Bar contains brief information about serial port and status of signal lines.
Hint: To get short information about program interface, place mouse pointer over particular menu, toolbar, etc.
IRP: Represents a counter of passed IRPs (Input/output Request Packets)
Read: Displays a number of bytes read from serial port
Written: Displays a number of bytes written to serial port
Serial port control information: This is a string of 4 or 5 items, separated by dash:
- nBaudRate : Defines serial port baudrate. Possible values are: 110, 300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 14400, 19200, 38400, 56000, 57600, 115200, 128000 and 256000. By default, 110 value is taken.
- nDataLength : Defines data lengths in a packet. Possible values are: 5, 6, 7 and 8. Default value is 7 bits.
- cParity : Defines parity in one of the following values: (E)ven, (O)dd, (M)ark, (S)pace, or (N)one. By default (N)one is taken.
- nStopBits : Defines a number of stop bits. Possible values are: “1”, “1,5” and “2”. Default value is “1”.
- cHandflow : Defines flow control value. Possible values are: Hardware (P), Xon/Xoff (X) and None. Default value is None.
Serial/modem control lines state:
- RTS : Request to Send line indicator
- CTS : Clear to Send line indicator
- DSR : Data Send Ready line indicator
- DCD : Data Carrier Detect line indicator
- DTR : Data Terminal Ready line indicator
- RI : Ring line indicator
The gray circle stands for undetermined state. The red circle stands for low line level, and green circle stands for high line level.
