A gracefully way to logging SerialPort data?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I want to log SerialPort data gracefully. Here is the detail,


To logging the input/output data, have I write a proxy class and replace all REAL SerialPort with the class? Then I can insert any logging code in the proxy class and forward Write(), Read(), and all other calls to the underlying SerialPort?

Oh, we can subclass the SerialPort.... However, we still have to create the proxy class and replace the real SerialPort with it EVERYWHERE. (Whenever the code needs SerialPort, we give it SerialPortWithLogging.)  I do not think this method is clean.

I also ‘superclass’ the SerialPort. By introducing a new interface and using only the interface to contact with SerialPort, I can ensure all I/O data are logged.  In the concrete implement, I forward the interface call to the SerialPort. I think it mess my code too.

I want to log the I/O data silently in background and withdraw the logging quietly whenever possible.

I think such I/O logging requirement is so common and it must have a more graceful way to accomplish it. (Inject? Attribue?...)

Any suggestion? Thank you very much!

Data Truncation issue with Enterprise Library Logging WriteLog stored Proc


Hi ,

I'm using Enterprise Library Logging  feature for logging. The issue i am facing is when the Logging message is too large(more than 65534 chars) ,complete data  is not logged in the Formatted Mesage column which is  of data Type nText .

I am able insert complete data if i try inserting from Sql insert Query from sql management studio. Do i need to add any attributes to data base listener or do i need to change the sp.

 Is there any way to increase the WriteLog stored proc param size in EnterpriseLibrary.Logging config file ? . Please let me know.

Duplicated data received thru SerialPort.Read



Can you help me with this strange problem? I'm communicating with RS232 device thru GPRS modem (RS232)

So, I open port, sent AT commands to call modem on other side and then (after establishing communication between modems) i send commands to remote RS232 device.

After sending command i wait collecting device response data in buffer until receive all 19 bytes of device responce. Strange, but if i try to read device responce again - i receive data (that can't be). Response data looks like i've send my request to device second time.

It looks like some strange write buffer caching or something like that. Can you help me to repair this?

Entity Framework and SQLCE - Repeated Logging of data (quickly) causes failed to open errors

Hi all
I am using C# Visual Studio 2010 with EF 4.1. I am receiving some SCADA data that I would like to log to the database, all is well, until the data comes in quickly (not really that quickly)
I parse and massage the data, and then call a "logMessageToDB" function.
now if I call the function again before the last message has been logged, I get an error in my error handler
logging the message caused the following error -> The underlying provider failed on Open.
How can I log the data more quickly? why does it take so long to add a new record.
My function is below, please excuse the uglyness of it (I have just started with C#, there is a bit of a learning curve)

Binding WPF Controls to an Entity Data Model

In this interview, programming writer, McLean Schofield, demonstrates how to bind WPF controls to an entity data model, using Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1. You can also learn more in the topic: Walkthrough: Binding WPF Controls to an Entity Data Model.

Surrogate vs Natural Primary Keys - Data Modeling Mistake 2 of 10

In case you're new to the series I've compiled a list of ten data modeling mistakes that I see over and over that I'm tackling one by one. I'll be speaking about these topics at the upcoming IASA conference in October, so I'm hoping to generate some discussion to at least confirm I have well founded arguments.

The last post in this series Referential Integrity was probably less controversial than this one. After all, who can argue against enforcing referential integrity? But as obvious as surrogate keys may be to some, there is a good deal of diversity of opinion as evidenced by the fact that people continue to not use them.

Editing the Data in a GridView

In addition to deleting a GridView's underlying data, another common need is to allow end users to edit the data displayed in a GridView. With ASP.NET 1.x's DataGrid control, editing the data is certainly possible, but requires creating three event handlers and writing a dozen or so lines of code. With the GridView and ASP.NET 2.0, it is possible to create an editable GridView without writing a single line of code! All of the necessary functionality is encapsulated within the GridView.

The GridView allows editing on a row-by-row basis. An editable GridView contains an additional column with an Edit button in each row. When the end user clicks on an Edit button that row becomes editable, causing the Edit button to change to Update and Cancel buttons and the other columns to become TextBoxes. The end user can then update one or more column values and click Update to save their changes.

Using ASP.NET 3.5's ListView and DataPager Controls: Displaying Data with the ListView

Prior to ASP.NET 3.5, developers who needed to display a set of records could choose between the GridView, DataList, and Repeater controls. The GridView provides rich data features, but has a very boxy layout; the DataList and Repeater allow for a more flexible layout, but lack the "point and click" data features found in the GridView, DetailsView, and FormView controls. The ListView bridges the gap between layout flexibility and built-in data features.

This article, the first in a series of articles on the ListView and DataPager controls, looks at the ListView's many available templates and illustrates how to display data. Read on to learn more!

Dynamic Data Templates in GridView ASP.NET 3.5

At a high level, Dynamic Data Templates can be seen as a system to very quickly build up a User Interface linked with the relevant data model, immediately enabling you to perform CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, Delete) on the database using the specified data source. They provide a powerful method for building up these kinds of applications, and I'm going to focus on an overview of what Dynamic Data Templates actually are, and a few ways of customizing them to suit industry needs.

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.
