Serial with Extender


I’m using Fez Spider and trying to run the serial port manually on an extender to talk to an Arduino (I know sorry).

I can’t find any code examples.

I’m trying to use - GTI.Serial serial;

But I can’t see any way to set this up.

Thanks in advance.


This helps a bit. I’m just wondering how I associate the Serial with a socket on the .NET Gadgeteer using the extender.

I done it a couple of years ago and I remembered it being easy.

@ shapingstuff -

See Image. This is a MF Console application using a Fez Spider.

The code shown is GHI example from Support, .NET Micro Framework, UART (Serial)

Connect your extender to Socket 11 - Pin 4 = TX Pin 5 = RX (No code in example image)

I forgot to mention that Socket 11 is COM1.

Thanks for this - exactly what I was looking for.

I was a little confused about COM1 and wither I had to define the socket.
