Notes : textbox2 in multiline mode and my weight bridge weighting is ricelake IQ+355
This is code above working good his result is ok according to weight bridge value
but it is not asyncronusly
i make timer is enabled but also it is not asyncronusly meaning you need close application and open again to take the value of weight bridge
Now How i make code above asyncronusly working and changes when weight bridge in same time
thanks
