Just create a string constant, right-click on it, select '\'Codes Display
and enter \03 (a ^C)

Then use this to send to your RS-232 port using VISA Write or Serial Port
Write; whichever takes your fancy

Good luck

Thanks Keith Fuller & Ivaylo Iltchev, it worked fine!
Do you have a list containing "all" of the hidden characters? I.e. Ctrl-v, F1 etc.?
Thanks again!

You need the standard ASCII code table and a keyboard scan code table (for things like F1). I've got a little book called Pocket RCRef that I've had for years but you should be able to find them in numerous places. Try doing a web search. Good luck.

1 -> Place Text control or Constant
2 -> Right Mouse Click
3 -> '\' Codes display
4 -> Type in control \03
5 -> End 😉

Or search on ascii tables

Hope this helps.
