Serial Communication in .NET Micro Framework

Celiker wrote a short demo how to use serial communication in .NET Micro Framework using the Tahoe-II device.

public SerialPort c1 = new SerialPort("COM1", 9600);
private void OnButtonUp(object sender, ButtonEventArgs e)
        switch (e.Button) // e is the event record
            case Button.VK_RIGHT:

                byte[] gond = System.Text.UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes
                     ("Second : "+DateTime.Now.Second.ToString()+"\n");

                c1.Write(gond, 0, gond.Length);
    catch (Exception ex)
        text.TextRuns.Add("HATA : "+ex.Message, Resources.GetFont
        (Resources.FontResources.small), Colors.Red);

Don’t forget to have a look at the SerialPortEx class on Pavel’s blog.
