Just upgraded firmware and downloaded latest beta comfigurator...

Noiced that in the UCM Universal ucm module there seems to be a new tab....Commands to device...

Should we define commands here now and then call them from response rather than defining all the commands in the response?

Actually just tried playing and its much easier to do it in the response still :-)

Cheers

Stuart

We have not documented the changes to the Universal UCM yet as this is one of the major changes to Comfigurator and the Universal UCM

The Commands to Device Tab will be used to send commands to the external device
Commands are defined here instead of the Response Wizard

This makes it easier to reuse the commands for a new device by saving the template

The Response wizard is used to send send a command that has been defined, rather than defining the command itself

So if someone has spent the time entering the commands to send to a new device, these commands can be saved as template and reused in a new installation

This was not possible in the old system as the commands were in the Response Wizard


Why do you find it more difficult to enter commands in the new way?

By the way, if you are using universal UCM, this version of the software is still being tested so it is advisable not to write to a live system unless you are prepared to test it and have a backup of the old cclx file

lol - too late but thank god all seems to be working - ok will play more and give some proper feedback!

It's not that its difficult just perhaps not so menu drop down driven......

I'll try both ways document feedback and experience for you.
