That is correct.

The protocol that I am using over the RS-485 bus has some tight timing requirements. Because of that, I had to simplify the code that looks at the incoming export data. It only...

Your mechanical switch is likely bouncing.

Right now there isn't a really good way to do proper per-control debouncing in the DCS-BIOS Arduino library, but here's a crude but effective way to do...

newValue[0] is the first character of that string. If you pass that to a function that expects a number, it will just display the ASCII value of that character.

Ok, that's really weird. You shouldn't have to edit anything -- the %COMPORT% will be replaced by the value in the COMPORT variable, which is 6.

No, there is no support for a key matrix in the DCS-BIOS Arduino Library. That means you can't expect to copy and paste a code snippet and have things work out of the box.

You should also get a readable command, such as "TACAN_TEST".

Can you post a screenshot of that situation (connect-serial-port.cmd window after button press on the Arduino, without DCS running)?
