Serial Port Data Import

Hi everyone,
I’m working on a project in which, I’m using the serial port asset to communicate with an external device (Arduino). But I am struggling to get the sensor values over the serial port to display them on the screen.

Hi @PQuest and welcome back to the Intuiface community.

I’m assuming you are running on Windows and reusing the Interface Asset we provided in this help center article.

If that’s the case, I’d suggest you run attach your Visual Studio debugger (as explained in the .NET Interface asset lesson of this Academy course) to the Composer process while running your tests, then put a breakpoint as shown below, to diagnose if you’re receiving any data or not and where the current code might fail for you / see what you need to update based on your specific needs.

Let us know what you find out while going through this troubleshooting process.
