SerialConnection Disconnect

Is this obvious and I’m missing it?
How can I know if a serial connection has been closed?
I thought I’d get an error, but nope.

You don’t get an exception if you reconnect?

That’s not what I mean.

I am connected to the device and then yank the USB. I get no indication that it is disconnected until I try to send data and it fails.

That sounds like a bug, did you wait for longer than 60 seconds? (To be sure it’s not giving a timeout?)

I would expect it to give an error event at least on removal of the device.

the hardware connected can sit all day and night and be fine.
When I yank the cord I get no events / errors.

I’m not sure if this is a bug or not or if it’s just how a serial connection works.
In my case it will be a problem to add some kind of “ping” method.

Maybe someone from Xojo can jump in and say if this is “as designed” or not.

sorry, and I waited adequate time.
