I am trying to create a digital IO panel that could read the DI and DO from the actual robot. I am thinking of creating the GUI using C# and using socket messaging to communicate with robot to get the data, i wish to create a panel that consists of light indicator to show all DI status and also button to control DO to on or off, also in the future i would like to show some register value on the GUI as well. I have a software SOCKETTEST to test whether the connection had established or not.
However i have no idea on how to start, can someone guide me how to achieve this? For example, how to i start socket messaging on robot controller , what port number should i use , etc.
Also is it possible to test and establish connection between SOCKETTEST and ROBOGUIDE's robot?
Any help will be appreciated.
