I'm not sure what THIS makes me but I'll go ahead and empty my clipboard (code copied from here GS - one of many[^] ). What I do when I have questions like yours is use Google. Sometimes there's nothing and I get flummoxed. Other times there's something which inspires me to continue working and not just pack it in for the day and get some exercise.

using System;
using System.IO.Ports;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace SerialPortExample
  class SerialPortProgram
    // Create the serial port with basic settings
    private SerialPort port = new SerialPort("COM1",
      9600, Parity.None, 8, StopBits.One);

    static void Main(string[] args)
      // Instatiate this class
      new SerialPortProgram();

    private SerialPortProgram()
      Console.WriteLine("Incoming Data:");

      // Attach a method to be called when there
      // is data waiting in the port's buffer
      port.DataReceived += new 

      // Begin communications

      // Enter an application loop to keep this thread alive

    private void port_DataReceived(object sender,
      SerialDataReceivedEventArgs e)
      // Show all the incoming data in the port's buffer
