    Re: Serial Port


    First, you have to start with the scale manufacturer's documentation. I
    have three scale examples in my book (see below), and none are exactly like
    the other. You can download the NETComm.ocx control from my homepage for
    the serial comms part (or use the native .NET code in my book).
