Hi all, 
I'm trying to set up the communication between my Netduino 2 and some TMP36 sensors installed on a machine. 
I wanted to communicate with them through two XBEE modules. 
I found several examples of code in C # but I need it in VB. 
When I try to transcribe do not accept the definition of serialports. 
the declaration I use is: 
imports System.IO.Ports 
UART serialports = dim as New serialports ("COM1", 19200, Parity.Even, 8, StopBits.One) 
UART.Open () 
And the error I get is this: 
"Type 'SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.Netduino.SerialPorts' has no constructor." 
I hope you can help me because it is the last step in order to have a temperature control between the PC machine i.

seems your compiler resolves to SecretLabs.NETMF.Hardware.Netduino.SerialPorts, whereas you want System.IO.Ports.SerialPort . Make sure in your new-statement it is SerialPort, not SerialPort*s*
