Hi guys,

Im making an application sending sms via 3g modem using the gsmcomm library.

After i connect to the port via clicking Connect button , the code below is executed.Then when I close the form and when i try to connect again to the same port..It says "The process cant access the file..because it is being used by another process " ..and it works behind Task manager..if i say "drop the task"..there is no prob as well

But if i close the form by clicking disconnect button..there is no problem after i reopen form and reconnect..

What can i do it ?

For closing event , i wrote port.Disconnect(); but doesnt execute..
int port = int.Parse(drpPort.Text);
int baud=int.Parse(drpBaudRate.Text);
int timeout = int.Parse(drpTimeOut.Text);

 comm = new GsmCommMain(port, baud,timeout);
 if (comm.IsOpen())
     btnBaglan.Enabled = false;
     btniptal.Enabled = true;
     MessageBox.Show("Porta başarılı bir şekilde bağlandınız!!", "Dikkat!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information);
     lblBeklemede.Text = "Porta Bağlandı";

Try closing the port before you exit your application.

"doesn't work" is completely meaningless.

Because you open the port and do not close it, the port remains open and in use until teh Garbage Collector comes along to free up the memory and Disposes of it. I would suggest that if possible you use a using block to construct your port instance, or ensure that you call Close and Dispose on it when you have finished with it.

It is worth getting into the habit of doing this for all objects that implement IDisposable - at some point if you don't, it will come back to bite you, as it does here.
