Open Method

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Opens a new serial port connection.

Namespace:  System.IO.Ports
Assembly:  Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.SerialPort (in Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.SerialPort.dll)

public void Open()

Only one open connection can exist per SerialPort object.

The best practice for any application is to wait for some amount of time after calling the Close method before attempting to call the Open method, as the port may not be closed instantly.
