    Exclamation How to Convert ASCII to Hex?

    [ Merged ]

    Here's my code and the result, as much as I know, is in ASCII:
    Private Sub Form_Load()
    With MSComm1
    .CommPort = 1
    If .PortOpen = False Then
    .PortOpen = True
    End If
    .DTREnable = True
    .InputLen = 1
    .RThreshold = 1
    .Settings = "9600,n,8,1"
    End With
    End Sub
    Private Sub MSComm1_OnComm()
    Dim inbuffer() As Byte 'Declare an array of bytes
    Dim i As Long
    Select Case Me.MSComm1.CommEvent
    Case comEvReceive
    ReDim inbuffer(Me.MSComm1.InBufferCount) 'Specify the size of the array. InBuffercount gives the number of characters in the InputBuffer
    inbuffer = Me.MSComm1.Input 'Read the InputBuffer
    For i = 0 To UBound(inbuffer) 'Ubound(inbuffer) gives the upper bound of the array, which is equal to the number of characters in the InputBuffer
    Me.Text1.Text = Me.Text1.Text & Chr$(inbuffer(i)) 'TxtReceive is a text box
    Next i
    End Select
    End Sub
    I need the data to be in Hex so please lend a hand. Thanks.

    inBuffer contains the data. what's the problem? You don't need to convert anything to text

    Thumbs up Re: How to Convert Hex to ASCII?

    Actually the title is wrong. I need to convert it to hex (or decimal, etc) because the result is in ASCII. If I use the data I receive (which is in ASCII), I simply can't use it to make a command because it seems that VB6 can't comprehend the characters. Here's what I get and what I need to convert:


    So at least, in any number system excpet that. Thanks!

    To be more prcise:
    Me.Text1.Text = Me.Text1.Text & Hex$(inbuffer(i))
    But I have an idea, this is not quite what you wanted...
