Reading The Serial Port - Read And Display The Whole 16 Bytes In One Go?

Jul 8, 2009

I'm working on a project involving reading RFID tags, I've written the code and it reads the tags ok by using the recieved data handler and displaying the result in a listbox, the only problem is that the data displayed has a couple of unreadable characters at the start (I'm using ReadLine() command.)If I read the buffer byte by byte the data is all readable.How can I read and display the whole 16 Bytes in one go??

Reading Serial Port Using .net 2008?

Oct 2, 2011

I have microcontroller interfaced with serial port of my computer. In my microcontroller I have 2000 sample data and my primary target is to read those data. Now I can read those data in hyper terminal, but when it comes to my application it doesnt show anything.

Private Sub sp1_DataReceived(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.IO.Ports.SerialDataReceivedEventArgs) Handles sp1.DataReceived
sp1.Open()
MsgBox(sp1.ReadExisting())
End Sub

this simple code block should show me the data.But it doesnt.data format coming Microcontroller is in this following formate :

nitialization successful !,1023
Starting sampling process... 1023,1023 1023,1023
0,2 1023,1023 1023,1023 1023,1023 212,686 1023,1023 1023,1023
1,5 1023,1023 1023,1023 1023,1023,659 213,689 1023,1023 1023,1023

now, I dont understand why it doesn't read anything :NB: SP1 has a baudrate of 19200,Databits 8 and no parity,COM1 port. I aisnt sure whether I will be needing a buffer or not

Reading Serial Port On Win7 64-bits?

Oct 26, 2011

I have a strange problem. We are upgrading a software that works perfectly in a 32-bits environment.Software have to connect to a serial port (or a virtual serial port) and read data and do wathever it has to do with it. Program uses the IO.Ports.SerialPort object.

Now, under Win7 64-bits, is works well when using "real" serial devices, with a DB-9 connector. But using USB device, with a virtual serial port (provided by the manufacturer), it doesn't work at all. I receive nothing on the DataReceive event. But it works fine on a Win7 32-bits.

Strangely, it also works on the 64-bits PC using a program like realTerm. When connected to the virtual serial port, data are received and it's fine. But from our software, it don't. I don't get anything from the serial port.

VS 2010 Reading Data From Com / Serial Port?

Apr 3, 2012

Private Sub receive_data(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.IO.Ports.SerialDataReceivedEventArgs) Handles SerialPort1.DataReceived
Dim aBuffer(255) As Byte
Do While SerialPort1.BytesToRead > 0

[code]....

Basically, what I am trying to do is everytime I receive data from the serial port, I turn that data into an array (aBuffer) and I then call another sub using that info.The problem I'm having is that everytime I receive data, the array only fills up to the first 8 bytes! This isn't a problem when I receive smaller packets of 6 bytes but anything else gets chopped off.

What is really frustrating is that it seems quite fickle. I've read somewhere that this happens because the computer is handling the bytes received faster than they are being put in the buffer?? Not really sure but if I put a couple of breakpoints during debug, sometimes the array fills up correctly... Note the maximum size of any one incoming message would be 255 bytes.

VS 2010 Reading Hex Data From Serial Port

Apr 23, 2010

This is an amateur radio project. I have a TNC (modem) that receives a digital stream (AX.25) from my radio. The TNC decodes the AX.25 frames and translates them to KISS frames (the protocol used between the TNC and the PC, see documentation here: [URL] It sends the data as HEX values.

What I'm looking for on the serial stream is the beginning of a data frame marked by 0xC0 0x00 and ending with 0xC0. Should be easy. Using serialport.readbyte() I should get binary data that I can convert to hex and look for the beginning of a data frame and then convert the subsequent data to ascii, as it will be text from a chat session.

Just to try it out and see the raw data coming from the port, I use teraterm or realterm and capture the data and it's a mix of junk (control frames and what not) and valid text. When I display the same data in a text box in VB I get data that look like this:

Reading Data From Serial Port For Barcode Scanner

Aug 28, 2009

I am developing a Winforms application which read barcode from barcode scanner. It's an Human wedge scanner. This will work if I placed the cursor in any textbox or notepad. But i don't want like that. Reason is that it's cordless scanner. If some want to scan some thing in store they will move around, so there is possibility of screen saver coming or system gets locked if that happens the barcodes wont capture, but the user who is scanning the barcodes won't know this thing.

So i am reading the data using serial port communication and my scanner sending the data character by character, Not a whole string. so for that I wrote the following code. Thsi code will works if i am writing to any textbox. But it is not working if want to store it in any global string. Only first character is storing in the string. The below code is working perfectly fine. but if want to save the string in Global String variable instaed of textbox the only first character in the string is storing.

Unable To Close Serial Port After USB / Serial Converter Disconnected

I have a stand alone VB.Net 2005 application that uses a serial port that generally stays open while the application runs on a Windows XP system. In trying to bullet-proof the UI, I ran into a problem when the USB to Serial Converter normally used to provide the serial port is disconnected while the serial port is open. In trying to handle the resulting error when accessing the port, I find I cannot close the port.

When trying to do so, the error message says something like "unable to close the port. You may not have sufficient permissions." Reconnecting the USB/Serial Converter does not reactivate the port.
