Rs232-class question

P: n/a
Hi!

My application uses Rs232-class, which was shipped with "101 VB.NET
Samples\Framework - Using the COM Port".
I need to sent certain kind of string into peripheral equipment attached to
COM1-port , and after receiving this string of my application this equipment
should return string back into my application.

Is it possible by using this Rs232-class to get return string after sending
string into COM-port first? I haven't succeeded yet :(

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

In the vb.net resource kit there is the free sax.net community
edition control. It supports sending and recieving from serial ports.
Maybe that will help.

Thanks Ken of your reply!

I downloaded and installed Resource Kit, but haven't take a look at it
before. So could you, or somebody else, give me more tips where in Resource
Kit can I find this sax.net control and maybe example code too.

Maybe I'll find it by myself soon, but I have some problems with IE (as
usually dispite of SP2 and IIS configured for WinXP Prof.) as you can see
of the attached picture. I thought earlier IE is web-browser, and not only
HTML-viewer :) Because of these problems I prefer Mozilla browsers these
days.
