Hello Experts,

The following is a part of script that performs a carriage when executed on a router:

& chr(13)

Can someone please tell me if its possible to convert that into an equivalent command like

|

Someone came up with the following:

aryCmds = Split(szCommand, "|").

It does work when directly connected to the device but now through a terminal server.

Cheers

Carlton

Use Replace.

Replace(Variable, "findCharacter(s)", "ReplaceWithCharacter(s)")

When you need to replace special characters, use the VB equivalents -

vbCr
vbLF
VbCrLf
vbTab

(for example)

Experts,

I found out that the carriage return script is keymap used in SecureCRT for VBS is "\r". Maybe that needs to be converted instead of "& chr(13)"? I need help with that.

Update,

The carriage return is either & vbcrlf or just & vbcr.

Maybe I need to have that somehow represented in the script???

leew,

Thanks for responding. I've looked at the example, however, how would I replace

 "|" with vbCr?

Cheers

The actual full script is as follows:

# $language = "VBScript"
# $interface = "1.0"
' SendToAll.vbs

Sub Main()
   
    if Not crt.Session.Connected then
        szSession = crt.Dialog.Prompt("Enter session:", "", "", False)
        if szSession = "" then exit sub
   
        crt.Session.ConnectInTab("/S " & szSession)
        crt.Session.ConnectInTab("/S " & szSession)
        crt.Session.ConnectInTab("/S " & szSession)
    end if

    ' Find out what should be sent to all tabs
    szCommand = crt.Dialog.Prompt("Enter command to be sent to all tabs:", _
                                  "Send To All Connected Tabs", "ls", False)
    if szCommand = "" then exit sub
   
    If crt.Dialog.MessageBox(_
        "Are you sure you want to send the following command to " & _
        "__ALL__ tabs?" & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & szCommand, _
        "Send Command To All Tabs - Confirm", _
        vbyesno) <> vbyes then exit sub
   
    ' Connect to each tab in order from left to right, issue a command, and
    ' then disconnect...
    aryCmds = Split(szCommand, "|")

   
        For nIndex = 1 to crt.GetTabCount
            Set objCurrentTab = crt.GetTab(nIndex)
            objCurrentTab.Activate

            If objCurrentTab.Session.Connected = True then
                For Each strOneCmd In aryCmds
            crt.Sleep 500
                objCurrentTab.Screen.Send strOneCmd & vbcr
                crt.Sleep 1000
            Next
            End if
        Next
   
    MsgBox "The following command was sent to all connected tabs:" & vbcrlf & _
        vbcrlf & szCommand

End Sub
                                           
And I need  "|" changed to vbCR, I think....
