thanks for reading and your time first!!
I am struggled developing my URCap.
My idea consists of creating a HMI screen for a palletizing project, where I have buttons and different combo boxes to change between programs when palletizing or to change some important values for a chosen program.
I have all this info stored in variables created either with PolyScope or URScript lines, like the number of the layers, current box number, etc.
Therefore, I thought that the best option was to create an Installation Node URCap. The thing is, I do not need to use the generateScript() method since this adds the code in the preamble and I want to update the variables in “real-time”/runtime (exactly when pressing the button or changing the value in a text field).
For now, when using buttons to update a variable, this is working well inside the action listener (sending a socket throught the port 30001):
But when it comes to i.e. showing the variables values in a text field/pane/label, where I need to read also the value set in the variable, I see no way of achieving this.
I have gone through all these posts and the CycleCounter example (here it is updating a variable but for a Program Node development):
And I am afraid that using the DataModel I can get only the names of the variables and I cannot update the values. It is not possible to communicate directly Java with the URControl that is using the variables in runtime, or am I mistaken? Can I use the scriptwriter anywhere?
Any help/clarification would be really useful. I am considering using daemon, but I am a newby with daemons.
Do not hesitate to ask if anything is not clear…
Thanks in advance and kind regards!!
