RFID TAGS, READING AND WORKING WITH MY VB.NET PROGRAM?
Posted on 2004-11-16
First time on the vb.net post so I hope you can help.
I have never used vb.net, but I am undertaking a project using RFID tags and have just purchased a demo kit with a reader and tags to play with.
I have chosen to use vb.net to experiment with as I have some understanding of asp.net as it seems a lot alike.
I have order visual studio on the way so have not played with vb.net yet but would like some advice before I start
Fist of all, how to I get my vb.net program to communicate with the reader? This is my main question. I don’t truly understand yet how to do this. It uses a com port and works at the moment with a vb program that come with it. But I want to design my own, so I need to know where to begin or any sample code anyone know which will help me understand and be able to get the reader to commutate with my program ie. Read a tag ID.
In layman’s terms would be good lol.
Anyone’s help on this matter would be much grateful, thanks.
