RE: [BPQ32] TermTCP for Andriod
- Thanks, Dave.The legend on the return key should change to "Send" (or something similar - on one of my devices is shows an image of an envelope!) when the cursor is in the input box.I had considered adding a "Send" button to the top row, but had hoped to avoid it. It is beginning to look like it may be needed for some devices.Once I get all the basics working, I'll look into adding things like a monitor and multiple hosts.73, John

Subject: Re: [BPQ32] TermTCP for AndriodJohn,
Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this project.
I have installed BPQTermTCP on my ASUS ME172V 7" tablet running Android 4.1.1. The tablet supports two different on-screen touch keyboards, ASUS Keyboard and Google Keyboard. The tablet behaves the same in either keyboard mode.
I can connect normally and receive 'Connected To TelnetServer' as expected. I can enter text on the input line and edit normally. I touch the on-screen carriage-return key to send the text but it is not sent. There is no response from the BPQ switch and the input line is not cleared. (Maybe a dedicated SEND button???)
The only comment I would make on the interface is the one host setting. We had discussed the eight selections for Windows and I am sure this is a limitation on the Android implementation. I can access the BPQ web page using the tablet so I do have a functional connection. However, I would like to use the BPQTermTCP app since it is much more direct.
That's my feedback on the thread. Thanks again, take some time to go sailing...

Subject: [BPQ32] TermTCP for AndriodThe saga continues!I've borrowed my daughter's Nexus 7 (Andriod 4.3) and this verison works on that and my HTC phone (Andriod 2.3).Just to be clear, this program is designed to work with BPQ32/LinBPQ, connecting to the port defined in FBBPORT. It may work with other systems, but that isn't supported.73, John
Greeting all. I will appologize up front for this but. What is the exact name for this app on the android playstore ? I am using a galaxy S4 and have searched, I thought for everything obvious. Such as bpqterm qnd tcpterm etc and cannot locate the app.
Thank you for the help

Keyboards switch to numeric mode and the numbers appear at the upper row of keyboard, but when typing numbers nothing is shown on the input line, so typing is ignored. But all other characters from the numeric mode keyboard can be typed to the input line, just the numbers not.
