serial i/o control

I'm just getting started programming in vb 6.0. Is their a freeware or shareware activex control for the serial port I can download?

There is the MSCOMM control included with VB6. This is actually relatively easy to use.

Just drop the control onto a form and set the properties.

You can then use the ONCOMM event to monitor what is actually happening.

The component is called Microsoft Comm Control 6.0

Located in MSCOMM32.OCX in \Winxx\system32.
