GETTING AROUND IN THE CPS
All CPS functions can be accessed using the menus, and some can be accessed using
keyboard shortcuts as described on page 38. Data in the phone codeplug block can be
accessed from the tree and content view of the codeplug window. These methods of
navigation are explained below.
USING THE MENUS
There are six menus in the CPS, as shown below:
The Edit menu and some functions in other menus will be available only when a codeplug
block is already open in the CPS or based on the context. For instance, the Copy function
will be available only when you highlight item(s) that can be copied.
Refer to the menu map on pages 36 and 37 to familiarise yourself with the functions you
can perform from each menu.
21
4 Tutorial
USING THE TREE AND CONTENT VIEWS
When a codeplug is opened, the CPS will display its contents in a codeplug window. The
codeplug window is divided into two areas – the tree view and the content view – which
make it easy to view the codeplug structure, and view or modify field values. The
illustration below shows the relationship between the tree and content views.
This column displays
the field name.
This column displays
the field value.
Highlight an item in the tree
view to display its contents
in the content view.
Click on plus and minus signs to
expand and collapse (that is,
open and close) folders.
This column contains a Reset
button if a field is resettable.
Clicking the button resets the
field to its default value. If
there is no entry in this
column, the field cannot be
initialised.
Click on an editable or initialisable field to modify the field
value.

Section 4: Tutorial
If you are new to the CPS, we
suggest that you try these
operations on a backup
codeplug file until you become
thoroughly familiar with the
CPS.
This tutorial provides an overview of the tasks you will perform most frequently using the
CPS. Refer to the “Help on Specific CPS Tasks” section in the on-line help for a more
comprehensive task list.
Before you start, make sure the CPS is up and running as described on page 10. You will
begin by opening a codeplug (or reading a codeplug from the phone) and making a backup
copy that you can use in the tutorial.
OPENING A CODEPLUG FILE
If you wish to read the codeplug from a phone, proceed to the next task. To open a
codeplug or archive file from disk:
1
Select File/Open.
2
In the File Open dialogue box, navigate to the drive and folder or directory where the
codeplug file is located.
3
Double-click the desired file name or highlight it and click OK. The CPS will display
the codeplug window.
4
Click on the (+) sign next to the Codeplug folder in the tree view. The codeplug
window should look similar to the one on page 19.
23
4 Tutorial
Never disconnect the
programming cable from the
phone during the programming
process or power off the PC
while the codeplug file is in
memory. This will destroy your
phone data.
Note: If the progress bar does not appear or
an error occurs, go through the checklist in
the “Troubleshooting: Unable to Read
Codeplug” topic in the on-line help.
READING A CODEPLUG FILE FROM THE PHONE
If you have already opened a codeplug file from disk, proceed to create a backup copy of
the file as described in the next task. To read a codeplug:
1
Set up the programming hardware as described in “Section 2: Setting Up the
Hardware” section on page 11.
2
Select File/Read Phone. A progress bar will appear and should begin progressing
toward 100%. When the read process is complete, the CPS will display the codeplug
window.
3
Click on the (+) sign next to the Codeplug folder in the tree view. The codeplug
window should look similar to the one on page 19.
4
When you have completed viewing the phone codeplug information using the CPS,
select Tools/Reset Phone before disconnecting the phone from the programming
cable. This function returns the phone to its normal mode of operation.
24
4 Tutorial
CREATING A BACKUP CODEPLUG FILE
To avoid loss of data, you
should make back up copies of
all codeplugs that you work on.
Backups can be extremely
useful in restoring codeplugs
that get corrupted or are
inadvertently erased.
To make a backup of the codeplug file:
1
Make the codeplug file active by clicking on its title bar.
2
Select File/Save As. In the File Save As dialogue box, navigate to the drive and
folder where you want to save the file.
3
Enter a new file name in the File name field and click OK to save the file.
Take a few moments now to review the CPS menus and the various features of the
codeplug window. These are described in the “Using the CPS” section beginning on
page 19. Then proceed to the next task.
25
4 Tutorial
CONFIGURING USER PERSONAL DATA
Fields relating to User Personal Data are grouped in the Ergonomic Parameters and Call
List block of the codeplug. In this example, you will program the phone to automatically
resend an emergency alarm in case no acknowledgement arrived. You will set the number
of retries to 3.
TIP: Use the Find feature in the Edit
menu to easily locate a field in the current
content view. Enter your search keyword and
the CPS will locate the first field in the
content view that contains the search
keyword. If necessary, use the Find Next
feature to search for the next occurrence.
1
In the tree view, click on the plus (+) sign next to the User Personal Data folder icon.
2
Click on the Ergonomic Parameters block, then on General. The contents of this subblock will be displayed in the content view.
3
Locate the Emergency Alarm Retries field in the content view. To set the number of
rings to 3, enter “3” in this field.
This is the same procedure that you will use to configure other user ergonomic features for
the phone.
TIP: For help on a field, press F1 while
the cursor is in that field. Or right-click the
field and choose Help from the popup menu.
26
4 Tutorial
CONFIGURING CALL LISTS
Note: You can use upper or lowercase
characters, punctuation and extended foreign
language characters such as “ç” in a call list
alias. The phone will display uppercase,
lowercase and punctuation. However, it may
not display extended foreign language
characters correctly.
In this example, you will add a couple of entries to the Phone List.
1
Click on the plus (+) sign next to the Call Lists folder in the tree view.
2
Highlight Phone List in the tree view. The phone list spreadsheet will be displayed in
the content view.
3
Add the entries listed below to the phone list. Click on an empty row in the Phone list
and add the first phone number alias by typing “LOCAL” in the Name column. Then
type “5551212” in the Phone Number column. Repeat this procedure for the second
entry.
TIPS: Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, Redo,
Clear, and Find functions are available from
the Edit menu. The Find function makes it
possible to locate an entry in the current call
list that contains the search keyword.
For a list of Call List editing shortcuts, refer

COPYING CALL LIST ENTRIES BETWEEN CODEPLUGS
Note: CPS copy and paste operations will
function only under certain conditions. For
instance, if you copy a set of cells and
highlight another set of cells in which to paste
them, the row and column sizes of the copied
cells and the highlighted cells must match.
Refer to the “Copy and Paste Operations”
topic in the on-line help for details.
Note: If you paste the new entries over
existing entries, the existing entries will be
erased.
A new feature in the Windows CPS makes it possible for you to copy call list entries from
one codeplug to several other codeplugs. For the purpose of this example, you will copy
the entries from the same codeplug file you used in the previous task. You will need a spare
backup codeplug file to copy the entries to. (See page 25 for help on creating a backup
codeplug file.)
1
Double-click on the Call List folder in the tree view to open the folder.
2
Click on Phone List in the tree view. The two entries from the previous example will
be displayed in the content view.
3
Click and drag the cursor across the two entries in the content view to highlight them.
(To copy the entire Call List, highlight the desired type of Call List in the tree view.
Then click the Copy button on the toolbar.)
4
Select Edit/Copy. The highlighted entries will be copied to the clipboard.
5
Select File/Open. Locate the spare backup codeplug and double-click on the file
name to open it.
6
When the file is opened, double-click on the Call List folder in the tree view. Click on
Phone List.
7
Click (that is, highlight) the cell in the codeplug content view where you want to
begin pasting the entries from the clipboard.
8
Select Edit/Paste to complete the operation.

SAVING A CODEPLUG FILE
Note: The CPS identifies codeplug files by
their .dbf file name extension. If you do not
use this extension when saving a codeplug
file, the CPS will automatically add this
extension to the file name when it saves the
file.
TIP: If you wish to save the file under a
different name, select File/Save As.
When you have finished programming the codeplug, make sure you save a copy to a hard
disk or diskette before writing it to the phone. To save a codeplug file that is already open
in the CPS:
1
Click on the title bar of the codeplug file to make it active.
2
Select File/Save.
3
If the codeplug file is being saved for the first time, the File Save dialogue box will
appear. Specify the file name and directory location where the file should be saved
and click OK to complete the task.

COPYING THE CODEPLUG TO THE PHONE
Note: If the progress bar does not appear or
an error occurs, go through the checklist in
the “Unable to Copy Phone” topic in the online help.
This task is synonymous with “writing partial codeplug” to a phone. This function enables
you to clone a group of phones with a working codeplug and does not change the Radio
ISSI (Individual Short Subscriber Identity) and other parameters during the cloning
operation.
1
Set up the programming hardware as described in “Section 2: Setting Up the
Hardware” section on page 11.
2
Select File/Copy Phone. A progress bar will be displayed and should begin
progressing toward 100%, indicating the progress of the write process.
30
4 Tutorial
Remember to save the original
codeplug data before you make
any changes, so that you can
restore the phone to its original
state if the programming goes
wrong.
Never disconnect the
programming cable from the
phone during the programming
process or power off the PC
while the codeplug file is in
memory. This will cause
damage to the radio.
WRITING THE CODEPLUG TO THE PHONE
This task is synonymous with “writing entire codeplug” to the phone. A codeplug read
from one phone can only be written to that same phone using this process.
1
Set up the programming hardware as described in “Section 2: Setting Up the
Hardware” section on page 11.
2
If multiple codeplugs are open in the CPS, make the correct source codeplug file
active by clicking on its title bar.
3
Select File/Write Phone. A progress bar will be displayed. After a few seconds, it
should begin progressing toward 100%.
Note: If the progress bar does not appear or
an error occurs, go through the checklist in
the “Unable to Copy Phone” topic in the online help.

WRITING CODEPLUG TO THE PHONE USING THE COPY WIZARD
TIP: Use Copy Wizard when you want to
clone multiple phones with the same set of
codeplug data. Once the data is written to one
phone, simply connect the next phone and click the
Write button. Repeat this process until you have
cloned all the phones.
Note: Set up the programming hardware as
described in “Section 2: Setting Up the Hardware”
section on page 11. Select Tools/Options to
check the setting in the Serial/Parallel Port field.
Never disconnect the programming
cable from the phone during the
programming process or power off
the PC while the codeplug file is in
memory. This will cause codeplug
data to be corrupted.
In the previous task, you wrote codeplug data from a file to the phone. With the CPS Copy
Wizard function, you can read codeplug data from a phone or a file, select the codeplug
blocks to be copied, and write the codeplug to one or more phones – all in one step. In this
task, you will use the Copy Wizard to write a codeplug to the phone.
1
Select Tools/Copy Wizard. The first Copy Wizard dialogue box will be displayed.
2
Click the appropriate radio button depending on whether you want to read codeplug
data from a phone or from a file. In this case, select “Read from a file”.
3
In the space provided, specify the correct path to the data file. Click Next to display
the second Copy Wizard dialogue box.
4
In the scroll list, select the codeplug blocks that you want to write to the phone. Click
Next.
5
Click the Write button to transfer the selected data to the phone. A progress bar will
be displayed and should begin progressing toward 100%.
6
When the process is complete, click Done to exit the Copy Wizard.
Note: If the progress bar does not appear or an
error occurs, go through the checklist in the
“Unable to Copy Phone” topic in the on-line help.

WRITING SOFTWARE TO THE PHONE (FLASHING)
Notes:
Set up the programming hardware as
described in “Section 2: Setting Up the
Hardware” section on page 11.
If the progress bar does not appear or an error
occurs, go through the checklist in the
“Unable to Write Software” topic in the online help.
This function enables you to update the phone software application version.
1
Select Tools/Write Software.
2
Click the Write button. After approximately 15-30 seconds, the progress bar should
begin to move toward 100%.
Never disconnect the
programming cable from the
phone during the programming
process or power off the PC
while the codeplug file is in
memory. This can cause call list
data to become corrupted.
