The purpose of this test dialog is to help MODBUS slave device developers to test the device with any string of their own composition.

The selected string is sent when the "Send" button is pressed.
With the "Save list" button you can store the strings in a text file.
Check the "Add Check" check box if you want to add a CRC or LRC to the end of the input string.
