Serial port access, always monitoring query

Posted 22 February 2009 - 02:28 PM


I have set up a Google Code project at in order to show my problem.

What I'm trying to achieve here is read some data from a serial port and update a label element on each new input.

What I think should give the desired result instead appears to be hanging in a loop.

The specific code I am having trouble with is...

			/* define the connection to the CurrentCost meter */ 
			SerialPortAccess meter = new SerialPortAccess(); 
			meter.ComPort = "COM7"; 
			CurrentCostUpdate ccUpdate = meter.GetSingleUpdate(); 
			/* get a single update from the CurrentCost meter */ 
			CurrentPowerLabel.Text = ccUpdate.Channel1Watts.ToString(); 

Please view the SerialPortAccess.cs file for the business end.

Thanks in advance for your help
