Phidgets Simulator

Postby elcray » Wed Apr 22, 2009 11:01 am

Can anyone think of a way to simulate a connected phidgets device. Many times, I just want to test the functionality of multiple devices in my apps. If the Phidgets control panel could simulate devices, it would allow developers to roughly build systems without having to have all of the devices readily available.

We've thought of this. You can do it by controlling the Phidgets through the webservice, and create fake Phidgets by creating your own keys.

For some reason I'm not wrapping my brain around that one, but I'll give it a shot and report back. Thanks for the solution.

You would use the Dictionary object to create keys.

Ah, thanks Patrick.

Is there any way to simulate a Phidget when one doesn't have a physical device of the required class please?

We're developing a Windows app which potentially supports all current Phidget classes and need to test each one, but we don't (yet) have physical samples of each one!

Thanks,
Jim

No, we don't have any way of simulating Phidgets.

Thanks Patrick. And presumably there's no easy way of hijacking the network protocol you use to interact with networked Phidgets, in order to do this? 8)
