    The carriage return on the textbox control is actually Chr(13) & Chr(10) (or the other way around).
    You should use the CRLF contant instead:
    if serial.PortOpen = true then TextBox1.Text = StrToUpper (TextBox1.Text & serial.InputString & CRLF)
    BTW, did you set TextBox1.MultiLine = True ?
