ReadArray Method

The ReadArray method reads data from virtual serial port input buffer and returns as VARIANT type variable of Byte array.  

VARIANT ReadArray(
  	LONG Count 	// the number of bytes to read

Parameters :

  • Count [in]: The number of bytes to be read from the port.

Return Values : The ReadArray read communication data from remote serial port and returns it as variable of VARIANT type of Byte array (VT_ARRAY | VT_UI1).

Note: If virtual serial port was not created, the return value is 0 (zero). This method is identical to Read, however is specially created for VB6, C#, VB.Net development environments.

C# example:

byte[] Buff;
Buff = axVSPortAx1.ReadArray(20) as byte[];

VB.NET example:

Dim Buff() As Byte
Buff = AxVSPortAx1.ReadArray(10)
