See more: C++
I live in Pinellas County, Florida just outside of Tampa. Is there anyone who can offer lessons in C++? I need a little help to get up to speed and I have exhausted the local community college.

Thanks

...no, only C++ structs, on the phone. :-)
(Please don't get offended by this little joke -- hard to miss a pun which is already embedded in the question. I live too far from you...)

Serial port example (helped me a lot).

And better to use button "improve question".

Well at least we probably have better weather than you. Judging from your name, I am guessing Siberia?

I guess what I am trying to do is to use WIN API's. I more or less know what all that in the tutorials are. Although I should say thanks, because that is a great reference!

But I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. I am trying to develop applications that are window based. These applications need to access the serial port.

Any ideas of what I could use as an example?

Thanks,

See Solution 4 for a first impression on serial port comm.

Solution-4,

That seems to work great. except I do not know how to write any code to utilze that fine piece of code.

That's where the big gap in knowledge is for me. I have used C to program microprocessors for years. I am not too terribly great at it, but I get by. I took a couple of courses at the local college to learn C++, but they don't have anything advanced enough to get me to the next step.

If you had the original source code, I could probaly modify the the WIN API windows enough to do what I want and then i could just write some code that would suit my new application.

What do you think? Oh yeah, thanks for the input.

Modifying the WIN API is not really the right way (and not really possible).

Source of the example you can download from there: http://coad.net/Blog/Resources/SerialPortTerminal.zip

And please try using comments and do nost post any comment as Solution. It helps to keep it short.

E.g. to answer to this simply use the Reply button one inch above :)
