I am writing a serial port communications app for configuring Cisco routers and switches. I have it pretty much finished, except for one thing. I cannot figure out how to send an arrow key through the serial port, as it does not generate an ASCII value.

The arrow keys are used to cycle through the previously entered commands.

Does anybody know how to send arrow keys over a serial port in VB 2008?

Thank you, sir! That seems like it would be best!

Though, I wonder still how to send a signal via serial indicating an arrow key has been pressed... this answer is perfect for my purposes!
