    Lightbulb Simple Renard Tester Version 1.0

    Here it is, a simple way to test your renard controller. Select your serial port setting, enter the number of channels you have, select your start channel and then slide the track bars to the value you want. No fuss, no muss. Quick, small and easy to use.

                                     as an approximation of the output color.  Minor code refactoring.

    I like it, tried it this morning at 57.6k and 115k and works fine, I like the fact that it's a click and go type file, very easy to setup and handy for testing.

    Thanks.

    One enhancement already requested is the use of an ini file to store settings, channel names and group names.

    What a great idea! (Good timing also) :D
    Just yesterday, I was testing a Ren48LSD, and wished I had something like this.
    I check in today, and there it is! I appreciate your efforts.
    Thanks loads!

    He kept talking about it and asking me to help him understand the protocol, finally, I was done building my controllers and couldn't wait for it anymore, so I just built the darn thing. There was no "Tom Sawyering" involved :D When I build the second thing with him as inspiration, then I might become a little suspicious.
