I am woindering if i can use visual basic to be able to read an input from a serial port and then display the value sent in a real time graph.
My circuit contains a PIC16F876 connected to a digital thermoneter i will be reading the value from the digital thermoneter in a set delay and then wanted to output this value to the computer via RS232 using a MAX232 at the start, then using a RS232 radio (ER400TRS) link, both of witch will be feed into the serial port of the computer. what i wanted to know will i be able to read the value coming in from my sensor circuit and display it value in a graph in real time using visual basic.
if you know of any places where i can get information to do this it will be greatly appericated
many thanks webby15
