Serial Decode Improvements

Post by OmironB » June 28th, 2020, 11:52 am

A few suggestions for simple things that in my view would improve serial decode:

- Do not show the "h" suffix in hex mode. It's unnecessary and more often then not it causes the "..." to appear when there is more than room enough to show the actual data. Very annoying.

- In fact the "..." often seems to appear at random where you have a string of bytes that display properly and then suddenly one that shows the "...". With a fixed width font this should not happen and is clearly a bug.

- For UART decode: packet mode is pretty useless because you cannot specify the end byte, you have to - it from a predefined list. Also for many protocols you need to specify a start byte not an end byte. For example the protocols I work with start with a fixed byte then some data and a CRC at the end.
