DotSpatial.Positioning port names

Feb 9, 2014 at 10:12 PM

I was wondering why DotSpatial manually add's a ":" to the end of the port names that the OS reports to it?
This causes the GPS detection code to try to find both "Com9" and "Com9:" where as the one with the ":" in it fails.
Is this a bug or is it by design?

I think it is a by design.
Check comments at Device.cs, line 1158 and description for BeginSerialDetection() method.
