  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    From your description, you want to read the data from electrical meter and show those data in a richtextbox, you do not need use wcf from my knowledge. WCF is a framework for building service-oriented applications.

    I am not familar with electrical meter, but if you have problems in Windows Forms, you can post here for better support.

    If you have any difficulty in future programming about wcf, we welcome you to post here again. Thanks for your understanding.

    Best Regards.
