PCx86 SerialPort Component

Format

<serial>...</serial>

Purpose

Creates an instance of the SerialPort component, which simulates an IBM PC Asynchronous Adapter (RS-232).

Attributes

  • adapter (required)

    A number (1 or 2) indicating whether this is a “Primary” or “Secondary” adapter. The former uses port 0x3F8 and IRQ 4, the latter uses port 0x2F8 and IRQ 3.

  • binding (optional)

    The name of an existing control binding (typically a <textarea>) to optionally redirect port I/O to. For example, if you’ve defined a Control Panel with a <textarea> control bound to “print”, specifying a binding of “print” for the Serial Port component will bind its port to the same control.

  • Also supports the attributes of Component.

Bindings

  • buffer

    For use with a control of type “textarea”, to send/receive data to/from the port. If you would rather bind the port to an existing control, then use binding attribute instead (see above).

Example

<serial id="com1" adapter="1" binding="print"/>

Output

<div id="..." class="pc-serial pc-component">
    <div class="pc-container">
        <div class="pcx86-serial" data-value="id:'...',name:'...',adapter:'...',binding:'...'">
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
