OMG

I hope it is a joke :) a 8051 isn't something wich much ressource. ASM is still the better for any mcu code at my point of view, or C even.

Basic seem something people like, but VB............ ;)

VERY careful with VB for serial port programming connecting to the embedded system.
Usually VB use two-byte Wide character set instead of single byte character. So characters in other Locales not considered in developing will be ruined.

That is WHY I hate the VB!!!

hai,


use the demo c compiler like

www.8888.com

it has the good resources for serial port
so u compile the c code to 8051 and download rhe code to demo board
connect the seial port to vb

open the vb
open sample dir
open mscomm project in ur msdn cd
if u dont have it
download from
www.microsoft.com
run it
it will show the ur send code from 8051 boad

if any difficulty call on

bye

visual basic to serial 8051 source code

Hi,
For learning VB the bet site is
www.planet-source-code.com
search for serial communication on site.


For simple working on 8051:
www.mcselec.com use BASCOM from there.

VB is great and simple for normal work.

------------
Great Pakistan

basic 8051

Yes, Bascom51 is really great for fast development of easier projects, but in the long term, Assembler is a must on µC.

basic for 8051

I agree with Mr.mip. ASM is a very good basic if you want to practical in 8051. Just try it is not too difficult. :)

mscomm vb bascom avr

vb is totally imposible to implement some real-time and high-speed (not so high) system. for effective system implementation, asm is the only choice.. yeah.. i think so.. even c..

I am attaching a list of very good articles that explain PC serial and parallel port interfacing using VB. Some of these work well however with Windows 98.

vb application for 8051

i don'w know why i feel that VB is a very stupid language and MS insists to support like here son, even this son brings nothing but troubles,
any way my friend, try another langage, ASM, C then
interface it to Borland C++Builder to make it visual project, it's the optimum

vb compiler for 8051

Well i guess you can find exactly what you are looking for in the book Serial Port Complete by J.Axelson ,
It explains 8051 and serial port interfacting in VB .

Its available for download at our forum.

And as a lot of debate has been going on VB ,i'd also like to add up that
"VB is like eating the cake without knowing its ingredients and recipe at all "

Hence its enjoyable and good to use ,but when someone with a real sense of caution or awareness meet it , for him/her its just too bad !!!!!

Still VB holds a good market !!!

Goodbye !

visual basic onto 8051

hi my dear
did u tried
www.planet-source-code.com
first this web site is very good site to find some source codes for most popular applications.
but i think u are using dot net now not vb 6 or older versions . so if u use vb or vc then the final step will use the same compiler for all visual studio languages
there is no effect if u use vb or vc " two faces for the same coin" try vs.net is the best
