TelnetCE getting garbage characters on application input fields

Article ID: 54673716

Issue / Question

What causes garbage characters to appear on my application input fields?

Applicable To

TelnetCE, CE7, WinCE, WM6.5, WM, Wavelink

Resolution / Answer

The garbage characters that appear on your input fields are usually the result of the "Use Timing Mark Heartbeat" Emulation Parameter:

By Default, this parameter is set to Yes.

This parameter can sometimes result in the host sending garbage characters back to the device after the device sends a Timing Mark to the host to see if the session is still active.
If you are experiencing these garbage characters, change this Emulation Parameter to No and retest.
