FabulaTech announced the release of the Serial Port Control new version 2.0.3

Specifically, FabulaTech has implemented the GetSerialPortDescription method and OnReceive event in the newly released version.

Serial Port Control is easy to use control intended for simplification serial port communication tasks in any projects. allows to overcome the complexity of the Win32 Serial Communications API. It takes a few seconds to setup and one will get full control over the serial ports with just a few lines of code. Examples, complete documentation and friendly API make Serial Port Control simple to use even for a novice programmer. Serial Port Control enumerates all serial ports known to Microsoft Windows (multi-port boards, ports on devices attached to USB, IrDA, Bluetooth, Firewire or any virtual ports).
"You can save a lot of time - just drop a Serial Port Control on a form in any development environment and compare this to writing thousands of lines of code ," said FabulaTech chief executive officer Chris Lydon. "The events support feature allows to simplify your coding as you don't have to check what really happens again and again. You can write a simple, clear event handler for each event you want to service instead".
According to Shawn Preston, FabulaTech chief software architect, Serial Port Control is useful for different purposes: to control manufacturing machines via the serial port; to configure network devices (like print-servers, routers) via the serial port; to control a modem, connected to the serial/USB port or Bluetooth; to send SMS messages to mobile telephone using GSM SmartPhone/Modem connected to the computer (Serial/USB port or Bluetooth); to transfer files through a null modem cable; any other tasks where serial port communication is involved.
"With Serial Port Control your software can communicate with laboratory instruments, navigational devices, medical equipment, modems, USB serial devices and other serial devices and machines in minutes", said Shawn. "Easy, Simple and Professional were the key requirements in the process of developing this software".
Highlights of some main features are described below:
-Unlimited number of serial ports can be controlled simultaneously.
-Powerful and intuitive interface to make serial port communications easy.
-Delivers all the capabilities of the Win32 Serial Communications API and eliminates its complexity.
-Works with all types of serial ports, including USB adaptors, Bluetooth, IR, or any virtual port.
-Performs multithreaded reads and writes with one simple function call.
-Supports reading and writing of binary data.
Additional offerings for discount enable use of OEM license, the latter allows to integrate Serial Port Control functionality into any own application and permits unlimited redistribution as an integral part of one's own software without having individual license keys. OEM License grants a royalty free distribution, so it is no use to pay extra fee per every license of one's application.
