I've not used it in, but C# is similar. Basically place a serial port on your window form and then use the read methods in the serial port object to read the data. You can probably just wait for characters to show up in the buffer (I don't remember the method, but it is one of the ones in the serial port class) and then issue a readline method call to get the whole thing into a string. Use of google and the visual studio help can be of great use here.
