    Hi,
    I have got two boards on hand.
    One is the light sensor board that is connected to 232M1A0CT.
    232M1A0CT is connected to the pc via serial port.
    But i need help to read 232M1A0CT analog port 1 using visual basic 2005.

    Thanks.

    Can you view the output using Hyperterminal?

    Verify all hardware is working before adding more software. Visual Studio 2005 has an example serial comm app available as well.

    But i think for me i don't need hyperterminal.
    Do you know where to find the example serial comm app?
    I know how to use when it is connected to a modem but connect to the 232N1A0CT board, i dont know hw to.:)
