CerbuinoBee XBee Access?

I am using the CerbuinoBee with an XBee, but in a Gadgeteer project, how do I access the XBee?

try this (untested)

using System;
using System.IO.Ports;
using System.Text;
using GT = Gadgeteer;
using GTM = Gadgeteer.Modules;

namespace GadgeteerApp4
    public partial class Program
        private GT.Timer _timer;
        static SerialPort xBeePort = new SerialPort("COM1", 57600, Parity.None, 8, StopBits.One);

        void ProgramStarted()
            _timer = new GT.Timer(1000);
            _timer.Tick += new GT.Timer.TickEventHandler(_timer_Tick);

        void _timer_Tick(GT.Timer timer)
            byte[] buffer = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(DateTime.Now.ToString() + "\r\n");
            xBeePort.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);

The XBee socket on the Cerbuino is COM1, I believe. Since there is no module, per se, you have to write the code to instantiate the serial port.

[edit] @ Justin beat me to a sample… note the default XBee baud rate is 9600, not 57600.

Thanks, I guess I was thinking too hard. I am using the same XBee I was using with a Panda II on COM1, so it looks like I can pretty much just copy and paste the code. I figured it would be different with the gadgeteer stuff but using the module didn’t look right.
