create an ActiveXEXE to get input from a device through serial comm?
Posted on 2003-02-24
Hi, i wanna create an activeXEXE to get input from a device through serial comm port?
I mean,I'll be always to fact serial comm programmin. get data from same device. So, i don't need to write again the coding for that. you may be ask "why do you have to crate an activeXEXE? why not an activeXDLL?"
that answer is because my application (main application) has a routine task on every second. that it'll not disturb the routine.
actually, i have created what i excatly wanted, but i couldn't fire my event in the mssomm1_event (recieve event). it could open/close port, just couldn't get input from device.
oh ya, I have PCI communication Port installed to my computer (Port 5 and 6). but when i scanned using mscomm i just got 2 default comm port (1 and 2). My pci comm port is RS485.
does mscomm has limited to 4 ports (1,2,3,4) ?
Please help me to solve this problem..
