I need to gather data from an equipment sending-only status to a VT100/ANSI terminal using rs-232 comm's.
Data appearing on serial can be properly decoded and display in PuTTY, the raw content of communication is of this type:

Code:
7<abcdef>87<abdef>87<abcdef> <itm1> <col1> <col2> <col3> <col4> <col5>  <itm2> <col1> <col2> <col3> <col4> <col5>  7<abcdef>8<abcdef> <itm3> <col1> <col2> <col3> <col4> <col5>  <itm4> <col1> <col2> <col3> <col4> <col5> 
[/font][/font][/font][/font][/font]

I need a component that decodes ANSI/ECMA messages in a data source type component, to retrieve data from the <col1..5> fields in the message.

I found other company decoding ANSI in straight way but only from telnet/tcpip, do you have appropriate components for the aim?

Cheers.

Our Advanced Serial Data Logger software can decode data from these terminals too. But this isn't a component.

I can not get it working, beside the vt100 option is enabled output is like simple rs232 monitor.
In receive mode (tx not used):
- The escape sequences are not interpreted
- The cursor position is always incremented with data received
General usage:
Sometime it does not start because port is already in use (not true).

Regarding your statement, it is not a component, it means the ocx has not all features of the application?

Beside all this, price is interesting if only I can get it working. For quick evaluation, do you have a saved configuration with ANSI decode?

Cheers.

Our software implements a simple emulation only (line feeds, carriage returns, tabs). It doesn't work as a terminal program.

OCX (ActiveX) works as an extension for our software and can't be used separately.

Remove escape sequences, send acknowledgments when necessary.
