Hi,

  2. while (ser.WaitingData = 0) do ;
  3.

hello,

  1. while (ser.WaitingData = 0) do ;
  2.  
your code is a cpu eater.

Are you in a GUI program  ? 
if yes use this :
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. while (ser.WaitingData = 0)  
  2.      do
  3.         begin
  4.           application.processMessages;
  5.           sleep(100);
  6.         end;

Well I thought the component already has a thread that runs and I thought there were events already in place?

OnRxData, OnStatus etc.

In anycase, one can post a user message from the Thread to the main thread and you simply implement a message handler.
