Hi!

I've worked in a project. It is currently working with the Hyper Terminal (BUT) I want to use Visual Studio instead. Where can I find a clue to start my job?

What I'm looking for is:
How the data or commands are being sent/received between the Microcontroller & the Graphical Interface (PC) ?

Visual basic comes with built in activex control for serial port communication. I think it is called MsComm activex control. Refer to the following link for more info.

you may check this #1261232 code for serial port communication in VB.Net to replace hyper terminal function with VB.NET GUI
