How can i access flags (internal digital pins as described in Ur5 script manual) from a urp program? I am planning to manipulate a flag from a Client interface and access that from a urp program. How can i achieve that in urp program in teach pendant ?
Any help or solution would be great help?
Thanks in Advance
I understood your question to be how to set a digital output pin using the program tree, is that correct?
This can be done using the ‘Set’ node.
Alternatively, you can always use a ‘Script’ node and write out the desired URScript yourself.
Hope that helps
Firstly, Thanks for the reponse.
My question is not about setting the digital pin, it is about the flags that are present in UR5e . We can set a flag value using Ur5 script api → set flag(n, b). The manual says that Flags behave like internal digital outputs. The keep information between program runs. I did not find a way to set the value to these flags from “Set” node.
As you have mentioned in the later part of your answer, Which i found useful. If I get the flag value using get flag(n) in a script will it be possible to assign it to a variable in urp program??
Thank you for the clarification. I believe you are correct that flags are not usable directly in the Set node - so Script nodes are the way to go here.
In order to assign to a variable, use the Assignment node. In this node you can type a URScript expression directly in the text field, e.g. ‘get_flag(1)’
Hope that helps!
