SerialPort Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the SerialPort class.

Namespace:  System.IO.Ports
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

new : unit -> SerialPort

This constructor uses default property values when none are specified. For example, the DataBits property defaults to 8, the Parity property defaults to the None enumeration value, the StopBits property defaults to 1, and a default port name of COM1.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the SerialPort class to allow two users to chat from two separate computers connected by a null modem cable. In this example, the users are prompted for the port settings and a username before chatting. This code example is part of a larger code example provided for the SerialPort class.
