Hi,

Do you know how to use serial port in VisualBasic.Net and
what is the object name to use.

Thanks,

Hi Gurinder,

There's no serial port class the .NET Framework. If you're familiar with
MSComm then you can still use it. Add a refernce to it in your project,
Imports it into your code and do what you know.

Here's a page with a list of links regarding serial access. It's in German
but the links are just as valid.

There may be a bug because design time licenses are missing:

Hi,

You can download NETComm.ocx from my homepage. It wraps MSComm32.ocx, so
that it may be used without any restrictions under .NET. See the other
replies for other links.
