Set flag in inherited class when SerialPort.DataReceived fires?

I've created MySerialPort, which inherits from SerialPort, and want to set an
internal flag when DataReceived is signalled. If I were firing the event
myself, it would be a simple matter of

flag = true;
if ( OnDataReceived != null) OnDataReceived();

The ugly way out is to create a public SetFlag() method and call it from the
DataReceived callback routine in the main program. Another alternative is to
poll for data myself and fire my own event, but that strikes me as both
redundant and wasteful. It seems there ought to be a better way to do this.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
