unhandled ObjectDisposedException though exception handler provided

Nov 19, 2008 at 3:11 AM


I am writing a serial port communication application using Iron Python. Following is my code:

 class serial:
    def sendMessage( self, entity, command, endstring ):

            BaudRate = 9600
            DataBits = 8           
            comPort = "COM1"

#create a serial port instance for the desired port as specified
            serialPort = System.IO.Ports.SerialPort( comPort )
            serialPort.BaudRate = BaudRate 

            serialPort.DataBits = DataBits

#open the port

            serialPort.ReadTimeout = 30000

            serialPort.Write( command )

            returnValue = serialPort.ReadTo( endstring )
            print "error"
            returnValue = ""


        return returnValue

com1 = serial()
a = com1.sendMessage( "ABC", "2", "B" )

Here if i abort my application using Cntrl + C then i get ObjectDisposedException unhandled though i have provided an exception handler.

Following is the stack trace which i got: 

at Microsoft.Win32.Win32Native.SetEvent(SafeWaitHandle handle) at System.Threading.EventWaitHandle.Set() at System.IO.Ports.SerialStream.AsyncFSCallback(UInt32 errorCode, UInt32 numBytes, NativeOverlapped* pOverlapped) at System.Threading._IOCompletionCallback.PerformIOCompletionCallback(UInt32 errorCode, UInt32 numBytes, NativeOverlapped* pOVERLAP)

Also i tried to abort the application using Ctrl + C while it was waiting for some data to be read and timeout had not occured.

The application exits and I get the exception after it exits.

 Please let me know if its possible to catch this exception in the current scenario.

Hi SheetaIP,

This is the discussion list for the CodePlex site itself. I would recommend posting this on the Iron Python discussion list to obtain help.
