<p>The MERGCBUS Event Table displays event information on your <a href=
"../../../../../../../html/hardware/can/cbus/index.shtml">CBUS</a>
connection.</p>

<p>Both incoming to JMRI and outgoing messages are logged to the table.</p>

<p>While the window is open, it will maintain a list of short on / off events, long on / off events, extended OPC on / off events, on / off accessory response events.</p>

<p>The table will always start with no entries, data is not maintained between sessions.</p>


<p>Short event codes will be stripped of any node number contained within the event CAN message.</p>
<p>All numeric values decimal.</p>


<h3>Columns</h3>
<p>The Event Table displays the information in 5 columns (the column
order can be rearranged by dragging a header, so it could differ on your system). : </p>
<ul>
<li>CAN ID</li>
<li>Node</li>
<li>Name</li>
<li>Event</li>
<li>Type (On or Off)</li>
<li>Comment</li>
</ul>
