IOCTL_SERIAL_GET_LINE_CONTROL IOCTL

The IOCTL_SERIAL_GET_LINE_CONTROL request returns information about the line control set for a serial device. The line control parameters include the number of stop bits, the number of data bits, and the parity.

To configure the line control, a client can use an IOCTL_SERIAL_SET_LINE_CONTROL request.

For information about valid line control register settings, see SERIAL_LINE_CONTROL.
