Boolean

 

Description

Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether Reflection replaces spaces with tabs during ASCII file transfers from the host. You can replace consecutive spaces with tabs by setting this property to True. Replacing spaces with tabs can save a lot of disk space. The SpacesPerTab property determines how many consecutive spaces Reflection will translate into a single tab character.

On the PC this value is also used to control replacement of tabs with spaces when logging to disk or copying from display memory.

Values

The default value is False.
