Simple C# programming help needed!

Postby bprion » Sun Oct 28, 2018 5:26 am

I have a PhidgetInterfaceKit 0/0/4 and am using it to ring a bell for shift changes in my shop.

I will use a Windows 10 computer and make use of a scheduled task to accomplish this. I need to create an executable program that will close a contact for 3 seconds then open it.

I installed the proper libraries and can control the 0/0/4 manually with the Phidget Control Panel but now need to write an executable that can be called by a scheduled Windows task.

I have Visual Studio installed and am able to open the programming examples from the Phidgets website but they are all much more than I need for my simple project and I am not a programmer.

Would someone please give me the code needed to open , delay 3 seconds, then close a contact on my 0/0/4 board? Ideally this would be in C# since I have access to a developer who knows that language and could help with other general things.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Assuming you've opened the channels and they're attached, you can use something like this:

Code: Select all

        Phidget22.DigitalOutput[] Relays = new DigitalOutput[4];
        private void PerformTask(int RelayIndex)
        {
            Relays[RelayIndex].State = false;

            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(3000);

            Relays[RelayIndex].State = true;
        }

Fraser,

Thanks very much for your reply.

Unfortunately, even with the code you provided, the demands of this project exceed my programming capabilities.

I am willing to pay you or another programmer to provide me with an executable program that I can call from Windows 10 Task Scheduler to ring the bell in my shop.

Are you interested in doing this?
