I am writing a program in vb2005 which needs to send binary data which will be used to control a FTDI UM245R chip.
I thought i could use the HEX values of keys like #9786; but this only works for values that appear on the keyboard like @. I need to send single high bits like 4, 8, 16, 32 ,64,128 in binary to control the airship.
Anything you send over a serial port is binary... If you could give finer-grained details, that would be helpful. Could you clarify (perhaps through examples) the meaning of “...need to send single high bits like 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128...”?
