Hi, I haven’t used an Arduino in a number of years.
Tied up with life. Starting again from scratch to be honest.
But hoping to fast track. Building the project is my aim not to reinvent the entire wheel.
Never used process before.
If I can get some help, it would be appreciated.
That ‘Serial.list()’ parameter in the example frequently causes confusion. IMO we need a single post that explains it all properly. For now, easier to say: see what port you used to load the Arduino e.g. COM12, instead of ‘Serial.list()’ put “COM12” (with quotes).
When selecting a serial port (as well as other things in life), it’s always nice to know your options. Adding the following code up near the front of your project can help you make an informed decision: printArray(Serial.list());
Hi, this doesn’t work for me. It’s been quite some time since I have worked with USB’s and RS232.
I don’t have an Arduino to hand at the moment. Wnen I do connect an Arduino to my PC will it show up in my Device Manager automatically. With an RS232 address?
Yes, probably. It depends on what Arduino you get, and whether the driver is already on your PC. Finding (Google etc.) the driver usually takes < 5 mins. After that it works every time, straight away. (If difficult please ask, with type of Arduino or url where you bought it.)
