Implementing a Read Timeout in MQXIO driver

Hi

 

We are using the rs485 serial driver. We do a read and it all works correctly but I want to create a timeout in the driver should the device hang or fail to respond. This is a normal function in most (non MQX) drivers. Does anyone know of anyway to implement a timeout in the read portion of the driver? I realize we could hack the driver and pass a timeout value, but this seems a bit unprofessional, and further on for other releases unsupported. Or is there another way apart from a timeout you could recommend?

 

Thanks

 

Robert
