With the "communications" component "Serial1" I can get a 'true' result from call serial.close and a fale from call serial.open which indicated that the component is somehow working (it kicks up an error if i try to call serial.open before serial.Initialise) however i can't serial.open and get a true result... and i can't transmit data. (I am using a pl2302 board) it works with other app store serial apps.... i see leds flashing and ger data back via a jumper across Tx and Rx.
But there is NO HELP ANYWHERE on this component. I am sure that someone would know the answer but i have been trying on and off for years to get data in and out via a use serial board. No i do not wish to open the non-functional otg.usb.serial.bridge app or any other app.aix i just want the serial component to work !
Anyone out there in the whole wide world who can help without asking me why i want to use it or how about bluetooth or how about a bespoke software ? ? ?
