AFAIK, you can't do that. You can detect that the voltage is either high or low (GetCommStatus I believe is the api call) but you can't ever tell what the voltage is...

Trying to get analog feedback on a comport are we?

there was a thread about writing to the serial port at www.lionhead.co.uk a while ago

you''ll probably find it if you do a search there, i think the subject was ''Writing to serial port''
