I'm revisiting Xojo after trying it out briefly back in 2011.
But it turned out not to be for me back then, for the particular project I was working on at the time.
So forgive me if my Xojo knowledge is a bit out of date.
I'm looking at starting a new Desktop project that requires communication with USB Serial devices.
And using Apple's IO Kit Framework in my usual Xcode enviroment requires a lot of work for USB Serial devices.
So I notice that Xojo provides the "Serial" and "SerialPort" classes in their Framework.
So my question is how easy and reliable are these classes for this type of project ?
As after reading some of the Xojo documentation, and trying some of the code examples.
I'm finding that the example code snippets do not deliver what they advertise.
For example, the documentation code snippet below.
For i As Integer = 0 To System.SerialPortCount-1 MsgBox(System.SerialPort(i).Name) Next
Results in a Message Box with only one port name, which is not a USB Serial port, but a Bluetooth port name.
Am I missing something simple ?
Or are these Xojo Framework classes out of date with the latest operating systems ?
I'm trying this stuff out on a iMac running Mac OS Sierra.
Thanks in advance.
