We require a PC based tool that will allow a device connected over a RS232 (COM) port to be configured with simple point and click controls. When initially connecting to the device the tool will need to send a series of commands that will return the values for each field. Each time the user alters the value in a field the new value needs to be sent to the device. The value of fields are read using a READ command and are changed using a matching SET command. The attached document contains more detail and also a mock-up of the application to give an indication of what is involved. It also outlines several enhancements/future projects that would build on this application. We can supply a device to test against, but please note that the safe return of the device is counted as a project deliverable and is required before the project can be counted as completed. The full command specification will be supplied to the successful bidder, but please see the example in the attached document. Please note this application must be written in Delphi and we must be able to edit and compile it using Delphi 2007 or Delphi 7. No other languages will be considered.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows? (depending on the nature? of the deliverables):
a)? For web sites or? other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software? installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
