Gets the number of bytes of data in the receive buffer.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
The receive buffer includes the serial driver's receive buffer as well as internal buffering in the SerialPort object itself.
Because the property represents both the SerialPort buffer and the Windows-created buffer, it can return a greater value than the ReadBufferSize property, which represents only the Windows-created buffer.
