Programming Serial Ports Using Visual Basic 2005

While serial port programming was absent in .NET version 1.1, Visual Basic developers who grew accustomed to the MSCOMM control in VB6 will be glad to know that this functionality is supported again in .NET 2.0. Learn to use the SerialPort class to make two computers talk to one another or even to manipulate a mobile device from your computer using Bluetooth.

This post is really useful, thanks! Anyway I am trying to do another kind of chat. I want to "chat" with an analytical balance (i.e. I need to send to the balance a special command to establish communication and the balance will send me back the weight on it screen). Any ideas on how-to?
