Can not send a SMS

Hi All,

I have written an application which communicate with a GSM modem. I have problems to send 'CTRL+Z' to finish the sms text.

When I use the GSM-Modem testsoftware it works fine. I mean I can send a sms. My software works fine when I am using a Edit field to input the text and copy the text from the testsoftware to the Edit field. But it does not work when I input the data in the programme to send the text including 'CTRL+Z' to the modem.

'CTRL+Z' is a Windows keyboard shortcut for undo and this is exactly what my programme is doing. For example it copies some text to it but do not send the 'CTRL+Z'.

I tried quite a lot to solve the problem. I have sent the hex code such as (1A='CRTL+Z')
ComPort->WriteString("\0x35\0x31\0x2E\0x31\0x32\0x33\0x34\0x45\0x36\0x3B\0x2D\0x33\0x2E\0x31\0x32\0x33\0x34\0x35\0x36\0x1A\0x20\0x20\0x0d");
It does not work.

When I use the testsoftware it sends a sms with the following text: '> Test-SMS  '. '' seems to be 'CTRL+Z'. I have written my programme with the Borland C++ Builder 6 and it does not compile '' with the error message 'Unterminated string or character constant
'.

Is there anybody who had similar problems and can help me?

Cheers,
Ronald

Make sure you do NOT send a CR (0x0d) after the CTRL-Z, and make sure your program waits for the > prompt after sending the initial AT+CGMS command.

Most people send the second line too quickly causing the problem.
