SERIAL_CHARS structure

The SERIAL_CHARS structure specifies the special characters that the serial controller driver uses for handshake flow control.

Syntax


typedef struct _SERIAL_CHARS {
  UCHAR EofChar;
  UCHAR ErrorChar;
  UCHAR BreakChar;
  UCHAR EventChar;
  UCHAR XonChar;
  UCHAR XoffChar;
} SERIAL_CHARS, *PSERIAL_CHARS;

Members

EofChar

The EOF (end of file) character. Receipt of this character marks the end of the input stream.

ErrorChar

The parity error replacement character. Bytes received with parity errors are replaced by this character.

BreakChar

The break character. Receipt of this character indicates that a break (temporary pause) occurred in the input stream.

EventChar

The event character. Receipt of this character signals a serial communication event if the SERIAL_EV_RXFLAG flag bit is set in the current wait mask. The wait mask is set by the IOCTL_SERIAL_SET_WAIT_MASK request. The IOCTL_SERIAL_WAIT_ON_MASK request initiates a wait for the events in the wait mask.

XonChar

The XON (transmit on) character to use for both transmit and receive operations. The XON and XOFF characters are used for software flow control.

XoffChar

The XOFF (transmit off) character to use for both transmit and receive operations.

Remarks

This structure is used by the IOCTL_SERIAL_SET_CHARS and IOCTL_SERIAL_GET_CHARS requests.

An IOCTL_SERIAL_SET_CHARS request to set the XON and XOFF characters to the same value will fail.
