This week, we show you how to make a Windows application using Yoctopuce modules, in C#. The exercise is interesting because most C# examples provided with the Yoctopuce API are actually console applications. Windows Forms applications introduce some small differences which you should note. Note also that this post doesn't pretend to teach you C# programming. You are supposed to have some knowledge of it already :-)
The Yocto-Buzzer is a small module enabling you to provide an acoustic ack to the user, which is particularly useful when you work with a mini-computer without a soundcard or when you work remotely through the network. To ease the use of the Yocto-Buzzer, today we present a simplified method to generate short jingles.
We take great care of our programming libraries, in particular of their ease of use. However, there is one spot where our libraries can be tricky: using our libraries from several threads. This week, we clarify and improve the situation.
This week, we explain to people using Yoctopuce modules for the first time how to manage them with a Python program through a relatively simple but realistic example. Obviously, we assume that the said people have at least some idea of Python programming, but we explain everything else in details.
Nowadays, most laboratory measuring tools have an RS232 port and/or a USB port, enabling you to drive them remotely. Usually, the manufacturers of this kind of instruments offer a proprietary software to drive them from a computer. This piece of software is usually more or less easy to use and not necessarily free. Obviously, it is tempting to get rid of the original software and to drive the devices on one's own. The question that we pondered this week was to know whether there was a universal way to drive this kind of equipment from an arbitrary software.
