Serial port and C++ .NET

Hello,

Someone can help me about serial port with C++ .NET (Windows forms
application). Like setting port, opening it, transmiting, receiving,
closing, etc.

Thanks very much (for me and my students)

Hi,

you can open a com port with CreateFile (filename "COM1:") and operate with
normal read and write. I think
it's still the same in .NET.

Or just download ACE (Adaptive Communications Environment)
for free and get a lot more power. :-)

For C++ you could use:

CSerialPort v1.03 - Serial Port Wrapper
http://www.codeproject.com/system/cserialport.asp

Serial library for C++

Do you need a memory-leak finder ?

Has that been ported to .NET now?

Thanks,

There is a decent article here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...m/default.aspx

The code is in C#, you can convert easily if you must. This basically
accesses the native API's; you have all the "power" you need.

Unfortunately we do not provide any mechanism in the framework to easily
accomplish serialport communication. This is a highly requested feautre and
we are seriously considering it for the next release.

However there is some documentation that might help you. The following has
a few links under the Accessing COM ports from C#/VB.Net that might be
helpfull:
http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/csharp/code/default.aspx

This has some samples implementations that you could use:
http://www.gotdotnet.com/community/u...x?query=Serial

I have personally used the following sample and it provided all of the
functionality that I needed:

I'm writing a driver in Python for an old fashioned piece of serial equipment. Currently I'm using the USPP serial module. From what I can see all the serial modules seem to set the timeout when you open a serial port. This is not what I want to do. I need to change the timeout each time I do a "read" on the serial port, depending on which part of the protocol I've got to. Sometimes a return character is expected within half a second,...
