How to I change these lines in vb.net Serial? Thanks
MSComm2.CommPort = 4
MSComm2.PortOpen = True
MSComm2.Settings = "9600,N,8,1"
MSComm2.InBufferCount = 0

RE: Serial in vb.net


has a number of overloads to enable you to open the port with a variety of parameters.

RE: Serial in vb.net

Alternatively drop a SerialPort component on your form and set its properties either through code or through the PropertyGrid.

RE: Serial in vb.net

is this is correct?

My.Computer.Ports.Serial.CommPort = 4
My.Computer.Ports.Serial.PortOpen = True
My.Computer.Ports.Serial.Settings = "9600,N,8,1"
My.Computer.Ports.Serial.InBufferCount = 0


RE: Serial in vb.net

I've never used any form of port control with VS. The last time I directly programmed serial or parallel ports was in assembler under DOS.

I've just given you a couple of alternative things for you to experiment with.

You can also look at System.IO where all the port control methods reside. (My.Computer) just uses a small subset of them.
