I have an VBA application that talks to a serial device, which acts as a converter and talks to another device. I would like a way for the application to timeout if it doesn't recieve a response in a certain period of time.
The trouble with the timeouts built in to mscomm (that I know of) is that they will only detect if the serial device is there when the app is transmitting, but I need to know if the third device is not responding.
Thanks and sorry if I wasn't clear enough.
