Hello Marcal,

welcome to the forum ! programming the propeller is a great fun.

For receiving a string take the

Extended Full Duplex Serial object (http://obex.parallax.com/objects/31/)

from the obex (http://obex.parallax.com/objects/)

inside this object there is a method "RxStr" take a look at this method and code a first try YOURSELF

Wherever you have questions feel free post the question and ATTACH your COMPLETE code.
All members of this forum are extremly friendly so it doesn't matter if your code is in beginners-style
Nobody will blame or kidding on that.
Without attaching your COMPLETE code it will be hard to give you suitable answers

By trying to code YOURSELF you will learn most of it.
You can post here new questions every hour and they will be answered ALL
(especially me I'm always keen on new questions)

If your questions are simple the newbies have a chance to give advice too.

best regards

Stefan
