    hii.. i'm new to VB6 and PIC.. i have problem to send data from VB6 to PIC.. actually my project is to measure current temperature and control on/off valve using zigbee module..

    The problem is when i click command button in VB6, the PIC doesn't receive the signal. I'm not sure on the coding in VB and PIC. Is it correct to send a character in VB6 to PIC? Can PIC receive a character?

    My VB coding:
    Private Sub Command1_Click()
    MSComm1.Output = ??
    End Sub

    can anyone give example on the coding..plz help me..

    What interface/hardware exists to make it possible for the PC to communicate with the PIC?
