TCPIP command to turn CW sidetone on or off

I'm playing around with Node-RED and looking for TCPIP commands that will turn the CW sidetone on and off.

transmit set mon_gain_cw=6 (from https://github.com/flexradio/smartsdr-api-docs/wiki/TCPIP-transmit) will set the CW monitor to a level of 6, for example, but if the sidetone has previously been turned off it this command will not turn it on. It appears that sidetone level and sidetone on/off require 2 different commands.

Suggestions appreciated.

    Hi Tim, the commands are:

    "CD95 | cw sidetone on"
    "CD95 | cw sidetone off"

    I Wire Sharked it and found:

    "cw sidetone 1"

    "cw sidetone 0"

    Perhaps the same as "on/off"

    Hi Alan, The documentation says "on" and "off", but "0" and "1" works just as well.

    Where might I find this documentation? Is there a resource other than https://github.com/flexradio/smartsdr-api-docs/wiki/TCPIP-transmit

    Hi Tim, that GitHub wiki is the only source of the API documentation that I am aware of.

    Home · flexradio/smartsdr-api-docs Wiki (github.com)

    Scroll down and see all the categories of commands:

    Click on the command name to get all the variants. For example, Click on CW and there you can find the sidetone on/off commands. Sometimes the commands are not where you expect them, so some poking around is usually required to find what you are looking for.

    Thanks, Alan and Len. That works. And Len, yes, I am learning that the commands are not always where I expect to find them.

    I guess that it is not too surprising, given the complexity of the 6000 radios and the enormous number of commands they support. It is a bit like learning a new language - at first the grammar and syntax doesn't make much sense, but then as you get to know it, you start to use it without much struggle.

    My biggest epiphany came when I discovered binding my non-GUI Client application to a GUI Client. All kinds of things became available after that!

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
