Re: Request: Store column widths in transmit lists

Hi, the widths of the columns in a Transmit list window are actually taken from the columns of the default Transmit list in the in the Receive/Transmit window. I admit this is awkward, but it has been fixed in the upcoming release 6.4.0, where the column widths are stored in the layout file of the p...

Re: Connection Bitrate and logging

Hi, setting the individual bit rate parameters is only required for CAN FD Nets, which is the same as in PCAN-Basic when calling the InitializeFD function. If you define a Net e.g. for a standard PCAN-USB (NXP SJA1000 CAN controller) you can use the RegisterNet overload that accepts an UInt32 bitrat...

Re: PCAN OEM Driver 4.2.0 certificate expired

Hi, what an absurd requirement. The validity dates of the original certificate with which the device drivers were signed have absolute no meaning other than the actual signing process can only take place within that date range. The signed driver package does never "expire". Code signing certificates...

Re: Send message in macro VBS

To send a frame without data, set DLC to 0 in your symbol:

Code: Select all

[TestNoMux]
ID=001h
DLC=0
And use this (simplified) code from the previous post to send the frame:

Code: Select all

Sub Send_TestNoMux()   
   SymbolsManager("Ctrl").Item("TestNoMux").DefaultMultiplexer.Send(1)
End Sub

Re: Automation: Help with executing Transmit list

To access your transmit list you do not need the Project object, only the Documents collection. Here is an example how to open your transmit list and access the messages in it: IPEDocument doc = app.Documents.Open("MyTransmitList.xmt"); if (doc != null) { IPETransmitMessages list = (doc.ActiveWindow...

Re: Automation: Help with executing Transmit list

Hi, I don't know how complex your testing app is going to be and what specific tasks it hast to accomplish, but if the focus lies on sending and receiving CAN messages perhaps it would be better to write a C# application that uses our PCAN-Basic API so you can communicate directly with the CAN bus a...

Re: VBS macro: how to wait transmit queue to be empty ?

No, for J1939 connections there is no XmtQueueEmpty property yet.
But we have already started to implement it, in the next version 6.3.3 it will be possible.

Re: VBS macro: how to wait transmit queue to be empty ?

Hello, when you start the cyclic transmission of a message, PCAN-Explorer builds a transmit queue that holds messages for the next 500 ms. Therefore, when you stop the cyclic transmission, and the cycle time of your message is 100 ms, up to 5 more messages will be sent. The following example macro c...

Re: Signals embedded in a bitmap

Thanks for the clarification. You're right, in the Symbol Editor you cannot select multiple signals at once to drag them to a symbol. The easiest way do do that is to open the Symbols file in a text editor. When you have fully configured one symbol, just copy-paste the block of message signal assign...
