Specifies errors that occur on the System.IO.Ports.SerialPort object.
This enumeration can be useful when handling the SerialPort.ErrorReceived event to detect and respond to errors when communicating data through a System.IO.Ports.SerialPort. You examine the type of error by retrieving the SerialErrorReceivedEventArgs.EventType property of the System.IO.Ports.SerialErrorReceivedEventArgs class. The SerialErrorReceivedEventArgs.EventType property contains one of the values from the System.IO.Ports.SerialError enumeration.
The hardware detected a framing error.
A character-buffer overrun has occurred. The next character is lost.
An input buffer overflow has occurred. There is either no room in the input buffer, or a character was received after the end-of-file (EOF) character.
The hardware detected a parity error.
The application tried to transmit a character, but the output buffer was full.
