hi this is my first post. my friend just bought an arduino duemilanove for my project. im trying to send strings to arduino using vb 2010 application so that i can turn a pin on and off at a given time. this is my code: all settings have been applied ( Dim result As String result = TxtBox1.Text + TxtBox2.Text p.WriteLine(result) ) txtbox1 will send the hour and txtbox2 will send the minutes to the arduino. i would like to store my system's time and the given time to the arduino microcontroller, and if the given time is equal to my system's time then a certain pin would turn off and on. i could try to use the vb application to send the the string at a given time but that would require my pc to be on. i just need to know the code for my arduino sketchbook cause i cant seem to figure it out :(
thx in advance.
