SerialPort.ErrorReceived Event

Represents the method that handles the error event of a SerialPort object.

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

public event SerialErrorReceivedEventHandler ErrorReceived
/** @event */
public void add_ErrorReceived (SerialErrorReceivedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ErrorReceived (SerialErrorReceivedEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

Error events can be caused by any of the items in the SerialError enumeration. Because the operating system determines whether to raise this event or not, not all parity errors may be reported.

PinChanged, DataReceived, and ErrorReceived events may be called out of order, and there may be a slight delay between when the underlying stream reports the error and when code can when the event handler is executed. Only one event handler can execute at a time.

If a parity error occurs on the trailing byte of a stream, an extra byte will be added to the input buffer with a value of 126.

The ErrorReceived event is raised on a secondary thread when an error is received from the SerialPort object. Because this event is raised on a secondary thread, and not the main thread, attempting to modify some elements in the main thread, such as UI elements, could raise a threading exception. If it is necessary to modify elements in the main Form or Control, post change requests back using Invoke, which will do the work on the proper thread.
