I am using VB Express 2008 to create a small program. When using the script below to change variable values it works perfectly.

Private Sub Button7_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button7.Click

Dim changeVariable As String
changeVariable = "+V990088"

SerialPort1.Open()
SerialPort1.Write(changeVariable)
SerialPort1.Close()

End Sub

However I want to beable to recieve information from the leopard so i feel the "Old" ASCII Protocol is limited. I created a new scipt showen below to try to change a timer value but with no sucess

Private Sub Button6_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button6.Click

Dim byteBuffer(8) As Byte
byteBuffer(0) = 200
byteBuffer(1) = 41
byteBuffer(2) = 5
byteBuffer(3) = 1
byteBuffer(4) = 0
byteBuffer(5) = 1
byteBuffer(6) = 0
byteBuffer(7) = 248
SerialPort1.Open()
SerialPort1.Write(byteBuffer, 0, 7)
SerialPort1.Close()

End Sub

I am very new to vb express 2008 so any advice/help would be much apreciated

Tom

Shouldn't the write instruction specify a length of 8?

SerialPort1.Write(byteBuffer, 0, 8)
