The hardware detected a framing error.
A character-buffer overrun has occurred. The next character is lost.

This enumeration can be useful when handling the ErrorReceived event to detect and respond to errors when communicating data through a SerialPort. You examine the type of error by retrieving the EventType property of the SerialErrorReceivedEventArgs class. The EventType property contains one of the values from the enumeration.
