# Serial DeviceOpen specifying port name and options

GROUPS:
 I'm trying to open a Serial device connection, specifying both the port name and connection options (baud rate, handshake method, etc.). Here's a screenshot from the Serial documentation:This suggests that you can either specify a port name or specify connection options when opening a port, not both. If I try to use both, I get an ::argt message:I figure I must be missing something here.
 Ian Johnson 1 Vote Hi Jesse,You specify it like so : port = DeviceOpen["Serial",{"COM4","Handshake"->"XOnXOff"}] I agree that this particular bit is confusing to determine from the documentation.Thanks,Ian
