This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.

this is my code when i call this on button then wpf unresponsive

Dispatcher.Invoke(DispatcherPriority.Normal, (Action)delegate()

while (_continue == true)
if (!port.IsOpen)
port = new SerialPort(CmbComPort.SelectedItem.ToString());

message = port.ReadExisting();
if (message.Length > 0 && message.Length >= 15)
if (message.Contains("^"))
AA = message.Substring(1, 2);


_continue = false;


1 solution

Read the documentation:[^]
"Dispatcher.Invoke Method

Executes the specified delegate synchronously on the thread the Dispatcher is associated with."

So if you are executing that code on your UI thread, then the UI will stop responding until it exits the loop.

Try using the SerialPort.DataRecieved[^] event and processing the data character by character instead.
