Hey I did wat you said! But i cant get the program to work! I entered 6060 the API server port from roborealm & kept the string at localhost. Then for the data in I entered request>GetVariable("COG_X") *255)/GetVariable("IMAGE_WIDTH"))</request>. Just wondering if you could let me know what Im doing wrong

Regards,
Gavin

Gavin,

You have the syntax wrong. Be sure to read the API page at

http://www.roborealm.com/help/API.php

You probably are looking for

<request>
  <get_variable>COG_X</get_variable>
</request>

as your is an incorrect combination of the API and the VBScript module.

Thanks for that, my program is basicly working, still having a problem getting my variable. It doesnt give me any feed back or variable till  after i close roborealm while the programs working!! is this down to the time delay??

Gavin,

Are you using the API to receive that variable or using something in vi to do that? It sounds like your receiving of the text information is not being flushed into ni when appropriate. You will need to use a routine in NI that does not wait for a newline \n in order for the function to reply with the received information.

STeven.
