CHR$(13) is the ASCII code for Carriadge return. LabVIEW has the same syntax as C. The ASCII code for Carriadge return in C is \r. To send this character to the serial port, create a string control (or constant). Right click on it and choose "'\' Codes Display". You can now type your command like this: "?R\n".

Here are some of the C ASCII codes:
- \r : carriadge return (hex 13)
- \n : line feed (hex 10)
- \t : tab (hex 09)
- \s : space (hex 20)

I hope it will help you.
