How do I read a serial port?

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi,

 

I am a complete Labview newbie and was hoping that one of the pros could point me in the direction of a tutorial on how to acquire data from a Serial port. I have downloaded some of the programs on here but I have really no clue what is going on in them. I've also tried searching for the tutorial and through the forums but everything I've found is way too specific and would really just like to know how to go about reading the data.

 

Thanks!

Search for Serial in the NI Example Finder (Help >> Find Examples) then choose the Basic Serial Write and Read.vi.
