    Added ability to read Analog Sensor data and display results.

When entering a command for viewing analog data a graphic will display showing the analog value returned.

Step By Step.

1. Click the generate button to create a command line.
2. Type over the command with VA.
3. Click the Loop check box.
4. Click Play.

This will loop the command to read the analog value coming back from the ssc32. You can also enter VA VB VC VD on the command line to pull back values from all analog sensor inputs.

Do you have an executable available? I'm having trouble building it from VB Express 2008.

I need someone to test this install of the SSC32 Servo Controller Software v2.2 - Visual Basic .NET
http://www.otherrobots.com/OtherRoboticsInstalls/ssc32.exe
and install of the SERV-O-MATIC Slider
http://www.otherrobots.com/OtherRoboticsInstalls/MovableControls.exe
Please let me know if these work or not. The links above will probably change but they are the production executables.

SERV-O-MATIC Serial Port Config v1.1

Console application that searches for an SSC32 and displays the serial port and baud rate that the SSC32 is using.

The application takes three optional command line arguments:
Name, Category, Model
ServoMaticSerialPortConfig.exe "My Cool Phoenix" "Hexapod" "Phoenix"

It also creates a serial port configuration settings file that can be read by other applications. The file is located in the documents directory under "My SSC32\SerialPortConfig.xml" and also creates an XML Schema SerialPortConfig.xsd.

The application implements the class SerialPortConfig.vb that can be copied for use in other applications to both read from and write to the configuration file.

Here is the XML file:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<SerialPortConfig>
  <SerialPortConfigs RobotName="Robot Name" RobotCategory="Robot Category" RobotModel="Robot Model" BaudRate="115000" Parity="None" StopBits="One" DataBits="8" PortName="COM3" />
</SerialPortConfig>


The application can be downloaded here.
http://www.otherrobots.com/Downloads/tabid/56/Default.aspx

You can run it directly from the executable here. You don't need to have an SSC32 to try it. It will just search the comm ports and not find it.
