Specify the callback function to execute when the CD, CTS, DSR, or RI pins change state


You configure PinStatusFcn to execute a callback function when a pin status event occurs. A pin status event occurs when the Carrier Detect (CD), Clear to Send (CTS), Data Set Ready (DSR) or Ring Indicator (RI) pin changes state. A serial port pin changes state when it is asserted or unasserted. Information about the state of these pins is recorded in the PinStatus property.

    Note:   A pin status event can be generated at any time during the serial port session.

If the RecordStatus property value is on, and a pin status event occurs, the record file records this information:

  • The event type as PinStatus

  • The pin that changed its state, and the pin state as either on or off

  • The time the event occurred using the format day-month-year hour:minute:second:millisecond

To learn how to create a callback function, see Create and Execute Callback Functions.
