What is the current thinking on RS232?

Good day everyone, I was wondering if nfcomm.ocx was still the best way to work with the serial port? Has anyone used mscomm32.ocx? Are there better ocx’s that are distributed with an add-on (I’m thinking RF or POS)? I have 36+ clients that need to communicate with a com port (a POS pole display), so i’m looking for a native solution rather than installing an activex component. I have also tried f.OPEN(‘COM1:’) which is a great trick, but will not work in this case (can’t read response!). Thanks in adavance for your tips. -john t.

I have used mscomm32.ocx to read a scale. It works just fine.

Jack, Any code snippets to share? Thanks, john
