Chr(13). Serial data baud rate is adjustable between 300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400. Data length is 8 bits, and there is no parity. Data will be sent only after standstill condition is reached. Order of bytes in each package is as follows:

Put a comm control on a form

Call this sub to open the form

Public Sub OpenCommExample()
With frmMenu
.Comm.Settings = "9600,N,8,1"
.Comm.CommPort = 4
.Comm.RThreshold = 1
.Comm.HandShaking = comNone
.Comm.PortOpen = True
End With

Send Data to form

Public Sub CommSend(ByVal sData As String)
frmMenu.Comm.Output = sData
End Sub

Make Data String

Public Function MakeDataString(ByVal sDataIn As String) As String
Dim sX As String
sX = Chr$(2)
sX = sX & sDataIn
sX = sX & vbCr
MakeDataString = sX

End Function<.pre>
