Deployment of a BX-24 application

Started by jack_rabbit_1962 October 31, 2005
Once I downloaded a program into a BX-24 and sent it to a customer, is
there an easy way to let the customer personnalize 2-3 variables in
the EEPROM?

Can I use package a small VB program to generate an ASCII file that
would be downloaded to the BX-24 using the Downloader to that it would
redefine persistent variables in the EEPROM?

I would like to avoid the need for 2-3 rows of dip switch on the BX-24
board and still let the customer select a few values before running my
application.

Any ideas?


This might help

You cound set it up so that the first time the customer uses the
program, it will ask for the personalized data. Then it will never do
it again. Check FirstTime().

when a certain condition exists:

- if a pushbutton switch is closed when the device powers up
- if a certain set of keys are pressed simultaneously or a certain
sequence of keys is pressed
- if the device receives a certain character sequence on COM1 within
the first few seconds after power up

You may be able to think of other similar "setup mode" triggers.
