I have an RS232 shield form Cutedigi. When I try to open my serial port, I get the following message: "a first chance exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.Serialport.dll" I can give more details if needed. Is this a common error caused by a simple mistake?

Hi Bryan,

I have an RS232 shield form Cutedigi. When I try to open my serial port, I get the following message:

"a first chance exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.Serialport.dll"

I can give more details if needed. Is this a common error caused by a simple mistake?

Can you share your code really quick (the few lines that create the SerialPort object and open the SerialPort)?

Chris

Chris, thanks for the reply. I actually got it working, but I'm still not sure what was wrong in the first place. I don't have time today, but tomorrow I'll try to recreate the original error and share the code, just so I understand what was happening. Thanks.

I just ran into this today, working on talking with this pH Stamp.
Here's the code I'm using:


try
{
    sp = new SerialPort(Serial.COM1, 38400, Parity.None, 0, StopBits.One);
    sp.DataReceived += new SerialDataReceivedEventHandler(sp_DataReceived);
    sp.Open();

    byte[] message = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("R\r");
    Debug.Print(message.ToString());
    sp.Write(message, 0, message.Length);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    Debug.Print(e.StackTrace);
}


StackTrace is telling me I'm getting an ArgumentException in System.IO.Ports.SerialPort::InternalOpen

Well, nevermind.
I just realized I had 0 for data bits, I doubt that will work very well now will it...........Posted Image
