Predefined messages

Frequently used messages may be stored into the database of predefined messages. Further we may use that database as source for automatic identification of messages (CAN ID Dictionary) which is set in Options.


1 Window with list of predefined messages. Double-click of the left mouse key will overwrite selected message into the field for manual entry of message (11).
2 Subjoining of the message, which has been filled in the field 11, into database. Description is added subsequently by double-click on the subjoined message, further its entry into the field 12 is carried out by depressing Set description.
3 Deletion of database selected message.
4 Replace, message from field for manual message entry will replace selected message in the window of predefined messages database
5 Saving of predefined message database.
6 Loading of predefined message database.
7 Selected database is loaded and joined to currently loaded database.
8 Sliding of selected message by a position above.
9 Sliding of selected message by a position down.
10 Tool for mass data changes in a database. For example it is possible to change value of identifier in predefined message window for another one.
11 Field for message manual entry and sending off.
12 Editing field for description entry and key of its setting for selected database message.
13 List of message selection. There we may define message cluster in a database that cluster is sent off by depressing of the key Send selection (15). That characteristic will find practical use in cases  when we need to send en masse more messages onto bus, which will carry out device initialisation, for example.
14 Keys for selection setting and their selection. Using the key Set the messages, which are marked in the window of predefined message database, are saved into selection. There is carried out selection of predefined messages using Ctrl + mouse clicking for single message selection and Shift + mouse clicking for message block selection in the window of predefined messages. Text on relevant line in selection list will be used for marking of selection. The key Select will carry out marking of message selection.
15 Sending off of selected messages to CAN. Marked messages sending off  will occur, i.e. we may carry out message cluster selection and before their sending off  to carry out additional amendments, i.e. marking/unmarking.

Function Change

        Use of  predefined messages database is very practical, however provided that we put together such a database for some device we will also want to use that database even for same device of different address. Together with this it does not matter where in that message that address lies. Just we need change in messages for example Id1 = 512 on 520. That will do only to open the window Change and click on homonymous key in left central part of main window. It will do then in this window, which value will be replaced, which value will be replaced with and where it lies. There are functions not only for retrieval itself but also for retrieval provided with automatic substitution.
