Hello all, I was wondering aboutpink string variables. specifically from my understanding each pink variable can hold up to 64 bytes of data while the bs2 series can only hold a total of 26 bytes of variable data. If I wanted to have a web form with text fields how can I get at those extra 40 bytes of pink data? I realize I can use one byte(xx) variable to read multiple text fields in as long as I send them out to my serial device before reading in more data, is ther a way to read, say, half a pink variable in and then the next half?

Thanks for any help you can give,
Matthew

The example in the PINK documentation uses a BS2P and the scratch pad ram to grab bytes. For the BS2 this obviously isn't an option.

Is there a way to do this with the BS2SX? It has the scratch pad ram but not the SPSTR function...

thanks!
