We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
Hello, wondering if it is possible to read any of the lower-level USB device information from a USB serial device with Processing? For example, hardware ID's (VID, PID) or 'Bus reported device description', etc?
For my application, I would like to be able to plug in my USB serial device (Arduino, for example) and click one button to connect to it, or scan the ports and automatically connect when my app sees the device is plugged in. Of course, the challenge is that you don't always know which port it comes up as, and ports are assigned depending on the order they are plugged in, which is why I would like to look for something specific to the actual USB device.
Does the new serial library have any features that might make this possible?
Any other pointers or examples for doing this?
