Hi, i have an app which sends data to a LED display device. I have created a thread which will call a sub which will continuously loop and send data to the LED display device. But i realised that now besides continously looping checking for differences in data and send it to LED display, i also need to send data to the LED display every 1 or 2 min regardless there are differences in data or not.
So the situation now is........i have a thread that check for differences a send data when required and i think i will create another thread which will start a timer and sends data to the device every 1 or 2 min. But what if at the same time...both threads try to send data through the comm port...will there be any implications? Are there better ways to do this? thanks
