RE: where can I find an active x controller to access serial port ?

MSComm comes with VB
Click "Project" menu "Components"
look for Microsft Comm Control

Here is some code for it

Private Sub MSComm1_OnComm()
'put this in the sub above
Static Buffer As String
If MSComm1.CommEvent = 2 Then
Buffer = Buffer & MSComm1.Input
If InStr(Buffer, Chr$(13)) Then
Text1 = Left$(Buffer, Len(Buffer) - 1) ' strip off chr$(13) cariage return

Buffer = ""
End If
End If
End Sub

Saxcomm makes a good 3rd party control that can be plugged in with little trouble. It has many more features than MSComm including built in protocols like Xmodem and Ymodem. Although fairly expensive I have used it and there is a 30 day trial.

Thanx positran
But I can't use the trial version in my work,
beside that the Mscomm works so good Till Now :)))
