Q3100100: I'm transmitting through a pretty slow device. What I need is a small delay between the characters transmitted when using your WriteString function. How can I achieve this?

It is easy to achieve, using the InterCharDelay property. This propery indicates the delay (in milliseconds) used by the WriteString and WriteBytes between each byte transmitted.

Please note there's also another property that can be used for slower devices: PreCommandDelay. It specifies a delay (in milliseconds) used before bytes are written to the port using one of the 'Write' functions.
