TCPmaker Embedded web server software also provides several ways to enter data as text, and send it to your device.


The versatile Is (Input String) control has 5 different modes, as shown in the image below:

  • Generic string - accepts any characters
  • Number - accepts only 0..9 and decimal point character
  • Password - accepts any character, but typed values only display as dots
  • IP - useful for entering IP addresses like
  • MAC - useful for entering MAC addresses and hexadecimal numbers


The Is control has extra capabilities that are useful for making [link] submit groups.


The It (Input text) control acts like a little terminal screen.  The upper part is a scrolling text terminal window, and the bottom line is an input box.  If you type a string in the input box and hit <Enter>, the string is sent to your PIC device and also added to the contents of the scrolling window, as a record.


The It can also show text sent from the device, which is displayed in the scrolling terminal window part.
