Uart Terminal Display, Can't See Last Line

Assistance Requested

Help Robot Doc with their question and receive $10 of EZ-Credit to get more robots and parts from our store. The following information was provided about their previous efforts searching tutorials for a resolution.

Robot Doc claims to have checked these sources:

When using UART 0 Serial terminal to read ASCII output from the Roomba diagnostic tests, as each test is printed out, the last line of text cannot be seen at the bottom of the terminal screen. It would be helpful if the screen could keep the output ASCII data above the bottom of the terminal screen.

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


I'm unsure what you mean? Can you be more specific please


As each test is printed out and displayed on the terminal screen, the last line of text is below the displayed text box.

oh! Thank you for the screenshot - that makes a world of difference! i'm on it Smile


One workaround solution could be done using an EZB-Script command to clear the text displayed on the screen just before the next test is requested. Would that be possible?


Or wait for the next update Smile. But 100 points for a creative idea!

Update should be tomorrow


WHoo Hoo, Thanks DJ nevermind then, I'll wait


forgot to mark resolved in my excitement.......


Bump, DJ is this still on your list for the next update ?


It is done. Was it not in the last update or has the last update not been finished yet? There's a hundred things on my plate so the last update might be the current update.

It's held back from the request for the brookstone rover 2 support. It has taken a lot of time.
