Newbe help. Sending serial data

Hello everyone,
I'm new to visual VB and I am trying to setup communications to the
outside world. I found the example listed below in the help section of
Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. Using the Hyper Terminal
should I be able to see the string "Hello" or am I completely off base
here? Thank you in advance for all and any help.
Best regards, Ken

Sub SendSerialData( ByVal data As String)
' Send strings to a serial port.
Using com1 As IO.Ports.Serial Port = _
My.Computer.Por ts.OpenSerialPo rt("COM1")
com1.WriteLine( "Hello")
End Using
End Sub

I suspect the Modem adds a comm port through the PCMCIA slot purely
for it's own means so theres no way you can use that one.
If theres no other comm ports shown in Device Manager, then I suspect
that it is disabled in the laptops BIOS. Have a poke around!
It should end up on Com1.

I need to send information through a USB port, so I can control certain machine on the other side. The data goes through a USB to serial cable, so I'm only interested in sending data (Though knowing how to receive it, is always a plus!). The thing is I've been searching for a USB API for VC++, and I can't seen to find any functions or libraries that might get the job done. I've read some things about creating a driver for the device I'm...

Hi all, I copied this code from the examples. "How to: Receive Strings From Serial Ports in Visual Basic" When I call the function and using the single step method it hangs at Dim Incoming As String = com1.ReadLine(). I don't have anything connect to Comm1. Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks for the help. Regards, Ken Function ReceiveSerialData() As String ' Receive strings from a serial port.

Hi, I'm trying to send information to a PIC. I have the PIC setup so when it receives the letter "A" it outputs a high to portB pin4. I know this works because when I send the character using a terminal the pin sets and the LED lights. My problem is when I try to send using VB the LED flashes momentarily. I think that VB is sending extraneous information and causing the port to go low again. I think I might solve this problem by sending...

The same thing can be written as ser.write("\x80\x10\xF0\x01\xBF\x40") Are you sure you're talking to the right device, /dev/ttyUSB0? Are the comm parameters correct? (BTW, if you get more than a single character per loop, the print statement will fail - try with ser.read(1))
