Need Help with Xbee XBP24-B packet transmission

by don007 on Sat Nov 24, 2012 9:40 am

I have Xbee XBP24-B module and i am using it with Arduino Uno.i want to make a packet with following configuration. it is like a structure or 2D string array. now making this kind of message is not a problem. This is a 10 field message and i think Xbee only allows uint8_t type to be sent over the air using ZBTxRequest message. So is there any API or way to send a structure of string type over the air?

Field = Datatype (max length)
1 = string field (2)
2 = string field (4)
3 = string field (8 )
4 = string field (8 )
5 = string field (8 )
6 = string field (8 )
7 = string field (10)
8 = string field (10)
9 = string field (10)
10 = string field (10)

much appreciated!!!

Strings are composed of characters which are 8-bit bytes. C++ will allow you to cast a character to a uint8_t.
