How to Clear RS232 Input buffer

hi, All!

I try using PurgeComm(hComm, PURGE_RXCLEAR) to Clear RS232 Input Buffer before reading.
But It is not working, it always get the same message. Somebody could tell me how to do it.
And I also hope to clear input buffer automaticaly after I reading RS232.

1 - Does the function return success?
2 - If its failing, what is the error code (message)

eg:

  if not(PurgeComm(hComm, PURGE_RXCLEAR)) then
     ShowMessage(SysErrorMessage(GetLastError));

You're using it correctly.
Make sure hComm is correct handle.

This is an example of clearing the rest of buffer after reading nCount bytes from it
    ReadFile(m_hPort, PChar(buf)^, nCount, nReceived, nil);
    PurgeComm(m_hPort,PURGE_RXCLEAR);

Thanks all,

I find problem is from the other code. PurgeComm function is working well.
