Hello everyone

All I want to do is get a msgbox to show on my vb.net application that contains the message that the arduino leonardo sent via serial.

arduino code:

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
Serial.write("Hello");
}

I've heard that you have to do something different with the Leonardo in particular about the handshaking process. :/
Does anyone know of a vb.net code that i can use?

Thanks

With aruduino, I am pretty sure you need to use the Serial.writeLN("Hello") Command.

and in vb.net you need to find out what comport your arduino is connected to.

then you csn set up a comport connection with serialPort and use that to communicate to the arduino.

here is a link with some serial comunication instructions for vb.net
Link to serial communications

Here is one for the Arduino side. LINK

The arduino link was no help at all, the Com port is COM3. Baud rate=9600. But what vb.net code do i use that works with the LEONARDO? it's different to other arduinos.
