I am using following below Code. I need to display only 17 B5 elements. what should i do ? Thank you !

            serialPort1.PortName = "COM15";
            serialPort1.BaudRate = 115200;
            serialPort1.DataBits = 8;
            serialPort1.Parity = Parity.None;
            serialPort1.StopBits = StopBits.One;
            serialPort1.DataReceived += new SerialDataReceivedEventHandler(serialPort1_DataReceived);

        public enum MessageType { Incoming, Outgoing, Normal, Warning, Error };
            private byte[] HexToByte(string msg)
            //remove any spaces from the string
            msg = msg.Replace(" ", "");
            //create a byte array the length of the
            //divided by 2 (Hex is 2 characters in length)
            byte[] comBuffer = new byte[msg.Length / 2];
            //loop through the length of the provided string
            for (int i = 0; i < msg.Length; i += 2)
                //convert each set of 2 characters to a byte
                //and add to the array
                comBuffer[i / 2] = (byte)Convert.ToByte(msg.Substring(i, 2), 16);
            //return the array
            byte[] newbuffer = comBuffer;
            return comBuffer;

        private string ByteToHex(byte[] comByte)

            //loop through each byte in the array
            foreach (byte data in comByte)
                //convert the byte to a string and add to the stringbuilder
                builder.Append(Convert.ToString(data, 16).PadLeft(2, '0').PadRight(3, ' '));
            //return the converted value
            return builder.ToString().ToUpper();

        #region DisplayData
        private void DisplayData(MessageType type, string msg)
           richTextBox1.Invoke(new EventHandler(delegate
                richTextBox1.SelectedText = string.Empty;




        private void serialPort1_DataReceived(object sender, System.IO.Ports.SerialDataReceivedEventArgs e)
            int bytes = serialPort1.BytesToRead;
            //create a byte array to hold the awaiting data
            byte[] comBuffer = new byte[bytes];
            //read the data and store it
            serialPort1.Read(comBuffer, 0, bytes);
            //display the data to the user
            DisplayData(MessageType.Incoming, ByteToHex(comBuffer) + "\n");

What's the problem? Display the element you want...
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:31am
I dont know, what need to be change in above code to display that specific elements.
jibesh 31-Dec-12 1:36am
or is that the value at the given index ie 19 & 29 want to display?
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:38am
Right now i am getting this large output
7E 45 00 FF FF 00 01 0A 00 93 00 00 01 00 00 01 00 02 17 B5 70 20 7E

I just need to extract 17 and B5 from above output.
Then I don't know what you possibly may not know. If you display all elements, it means that you know how to display any of them...
jibesh 31-Dec-12 1:40am
but can you make sure that you want only the 17 followed by B5 combination? and this value did not come any where in the middle?
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:41am
yes i want to display values at given indexes 19 and 20.
I dont know, where i need to change my code for it.
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:43am
I dont need that combination. i just need to display elements at index 19 and 20 as values are changing in every minute at serial port.
jibesh 31-Dec-12 1:49am
Check my updated solution. I think i said the wrong index 19 and 20 including the space and other char it will start from 54. please double check the index with your own data.

Solution 1

How do you know you need to display 17 B5.

just modify the code
DisplayData(MessageType.Incoming, ByteToHex(comBuffer) + "\n");

and write that logic.
or express the logic i will help you
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:45am
I just need to display values at Index 19 and 20. Whatever the values are at index 19 and 20.

Solution 2

Update your display method like below. get the substring from the msg

string substring = string.Empty;
if( message.Length > 54)
 substring = msg.Substring(54, 4); 
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:53am
ok thank you so much for your solution.
I am trying your solution now.
Thanks once again.
jibesh 31-Dec-12 1:54am
you welcome. good day to you.
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 1:56am
good day to you too.
ontheline89 31-Dec-12 2:02am
Jibesh just one thing more,
Why you have used values 54 and 4 in your solution ?
