I would like to thank you for your efforts. It is the thought that counts.
When you wrote:
“around line 186 of the DigitalBankDlg.cpp file”
I inserted some code there prior to your response (about a week ago) and this ended up causing the system to become inoperable.
This is why I left so much documentation and the download link to the development kit. I felt that a programmer with prior experience with this unit would have a working answer and could write a couple lines of working code to get me started. I know that opto sells a lot of different models, therefore, there probably isn't someone at the company who can program every unit. But, I did think that I could get lucky and, maybe, someone may be able to reply with working code.
Believe it or not, your answer was probably one of the better replies that I had received - as compared to some of the official technical support replies that I had read. As of this date, I have received no coded working replies from the official technical support personnel. Emailing just a link to a manual is often really not very helpful, especially in the case where the directions in the manual substancially differs from the actual code that has to be utilized to get a unit up and running.
I am very, very, grateful that you have pointed this out for me.
Hopefully, someone who has prior experience with this particular model will reply.
By the way, when you wrote:
" ConfigurePoint command handles that for you based on the point number passed"
Can you tell me what prior coded instructions have to be inserted before the "ConfigurePoint" command? I am under the belief that the "brain" has to know at a minimum, the module number and the point number, to reference an address?
Again, I want you to know before I log off, that I am very, very, grateful to receive the information that you have passed onto me. The problem is how can one detect when the information in the manual will differ from what is required to be written in code to get a unit "up and running." This is why I really need working code.
Hopefully, someone will reply. If you are employed by OPTO22, can you please ask someone to write me some code just to get me started? This would be appreciated. But with my luck it probably isn't the case that you are employed by OPTO22.
Either way, I am going to keep experimenting tonight. Hopefully, I will get lucky.
