The monitor shows all received data on a particular connection, either Serial or UDP. Check out our Getting Started with Arduino Serial Monitoring article for step by step instructions.
Open a Monitor visualiser, select the connection that you have set up in the Connection Manager, any data being sent to your computer on that connection will be listed in order of arrival.
- There are a number of escape codes you can use including \n (newline), \r (carriage return), \t (tab), \\ (slash) and \xnn (send hex value, n=digit)
The Message Monitor allows you to separate messages from all the other data that is coming across the connection to the micro. These messages can also be tagged to further group and filter from other messages.
Send a serial string in either of these formats to your computer:
channelName = "Secret"
An example Arduino code function is shown for sending Messages to MegunoLink Pro (pass an empty string (“”) for
channelName for no channel):
void MessageMonitor(String message, String channelName)
