Reading .fcpx files in notepad

Post by cobra1 »

Hi,
I was hoping to look at what commands you are sending to the ESP8266 wifi module in the attached component file.
I tried to open it in notepad but its just jargon.

When i look in the customise c option in flowcode itself i can see only this

// Read Server IP
// Call Component Macro: data=WLAN_ESP8266::CheckTCPServerIP()
FCD_08181_WLAN_ESP8266__CheckTCPServerIP(FCV_DATA,20 );

Is it possible to see what commands you are sending over the serial port for each macro ?

Hello,

The .FCPX file is XML text so if you open the file in TextPad or NotePad++ then it should look ok.

If you go into the Flowcode project and then click Build -> View C Code, or you can directly view the C code .C file using TextPad or NotePad++. This should contain all the info your looking for.

Hi Ben,
Thank you for your reply.

In notepad++ this is an example of what i get when opening the above file.

Is there any reason you know why it would do this?

I cannot view the code directly from FLOWCODE 6 as my demo has expired and i use flowcode 4. Thats why i wanted to view what commands you send and look closer at how you send the commands to make the webserver work.

Components are encrypted, as a result you can not view the code in an editor.

If I'm not mistaken, even with an expired license you should be able to view the source of an earlier version of the component that has been posted. Look for attachments with the fcfx extension. Also fcfx is unencrypted XML code.

How would i look at the source for a specific component?? When i goto build, view c. Notepad pops up and in place of c code i get instead sinething like you do not have permission. I cant remember the full text as im not home right now.

Is there a specific component your wanting the source code for Cobra? If so then I might be able to upload the source .FCFX file for you.

The source you are looking for is attached here: http://www.matrixtsl.com/mmforums/viewt ... 362#p63105 It is the last attachment in the message.

I tried to point to forum attachments in my previous message (as I recalled Ben posted this source some time ago), but should probably have worded it more clearly...
