Let's assume that I run a program which reads/writes to a serial port (com3). I known that the program uses baud rate 19200 and dynamically sets parity bit (mark parity or space parity). When I use following command (cmd):
mode com3
during program execution I get following info: Device COM3 is not currently available.

 Is there any way to check serial port parameters in the "realtime" ?
