Title: Serial connection without flow control, but manual control of the control wires
Post by: RainBold on December 01, 2014, 10:19:18 AM
I have to drive an external hardware via an RS232 port without flow control (3-wire mode). The Power supply is done via DTR / RTS and some states are recorded on CTS and DSR.

How can I access to the control wires manually, or how do I get the handle of the connection (need for the "GetCommModemStatus" or "EscapeCommFunction" functions) ?

Hello,

Unfortunately currently it is not supported in WCL (as WCL developed for wireless communication, Serial is mostly for legacy app support). But if you need it we can add it into WCL (for serial connection).

That would be very good if you can do that.
