I use the library from many years. :)
I use it for send and receive textfile. I use Moxa materiel for have a Serial Port (Moxa 5110) (it has a buffer)
When, for any reasons, i have a problem on the middle of the transfer (for exemple in a RTS/CTS mode) and i try to Close the COM port it take 30 sec to close the port and freeze my application during this time.
So when i have Character on the moxa buffer and i try to close the port it take too many time.
Anybody have a explaination on that problem?
Thank's for advance.
it's the PurgeComm() methode in the ClearBuffer() method that do not her job.
In fact When clearbuffer is called the buffer is not flushing…
The failure of PurgeComm to function is a fact that you have to learn to live with when you use certain brands of USB to Serial converters. I have not had this problem with a physical PCI serial port. These days people use USB to Serial converters and forget that there is a lot of custom magic involved in those.
If it is annoying you, buy a different convertor that uses a different chipset. My favorite is the FTDI chipset. I buy cheap $5 ones from my local PC "bone shop" that imports them directly from somewhere in Asia, and when I find the FTDI ones, I stock up so I always have enough of them.
Thank's for your response.
But it's not a USB to Serial, It's an expensive industrial ethernet to serial material :) I hate the USB to serial converters indeed ;)
So have you any idea about this problem with this material? It's only a constructor fact or can be a Programming way in my code?
