- or -
An attempt to set the state of the underlying port failed. For example, the parameters passed from this SerialPort object were invalid.
The break signal state occurs when a transmission is suspended and the line is placed in a break state (all low, no stop bit) until released. To enter a break state, set this property to true. If the port is already in a break state, setting this property again to true does not result in an exception. It is not possible to write to the SerialPort object while is true.
