This function is told you about open, close,read, write Comm Port

BOOL CommFunction()
{
      ///////////////////////////////////
      //Open COM Port
      //////////////////////////////////
      HANDLE CommHandle = CreateFile("COM1", GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE, 0, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, NULL);
      if(CommHandle == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
      {
            return FALSE;
      }

      //Set Speed
      char cc[500];
      COMMCONFIG* pCC = (COMMCONFIG*)cc;
      pCC->dwSize = 500;
      pCC->wVersion = 0x100;
      
      //Set TimeOut
      COMMTIMEOUTS timeout;
      timeout.ReadIntervalTimeout      = MAXDWORD;
      timeout.ReadTotalTimeoutMultiplier = 0;
      timeout.ReadTotalTimeoutConstant = 0;
      timeout.WriteTotalTimeoutMultiplier = 0;
      timeout.WriteTotalTimeoutConstant = 0;
      if(!SetCommTimeouts(CommHandle, &timeout) ||
           !CommConfigDialog("COM1", NULL, pCC))
      {
            CloseHandle(TivhCommHandle);
            return FALSE;
      }

      //Set DCB
      DCB dcb;      
      GetCommState(CommHandle, &dcb);
      dcb.BaudRate = pCC->dcb.BaudRate;
      dcb.ByteSize = pCC->dcb.ByteSize;
      dcb.StopBits = pCC->dcb.StopBits;
      dcb.Parity   = pCC->dcb.Parity;
      SetCommState(CommHandle, &dcb);

      ///////////////////////////////////
      //Read Data
      //////////////////////////////////
      char sBuf[MAX_BUF];
      int  lLen;
      while(<When Read Data Stop>)
      {
            if(ReadFile(CommHandle, sBuf, 1, &lLen, NULL) && lLen > 0)
            {
                  //All Data in sBuf,Read Length in lLen
                  ..........
            }
      }

      ///////////////////////////////////
      //Write Data
      //////////////////////////////////
      WriteFile(CommHandle, sBuf, lLen, NULL, NULL);

      ///////////////////////////////////
      //Close Port
      //////////////////////////////////
      CloseHandle(CommHandle);
