The window has a dockable dialog bar at the bottom that is used to send information down the channel. Typing information in the edit box and clicking the Send button will store the information in a buffer. The information is sent when requested by the target. The Left to send counter displays the number of bytes that are left in the buffer.

Sending information

To send information to the target, type a string into the edit box on the dialog bar and click the Send button. The information is sent when requested by the target, in ASCII character codes.
