Method

Error Code

Init(string configXML, out object signalNames, out object dataTypes, int startCommunication)

  • -999 = Invalid license

  • -1 = Already initialized

  • -3 = Invalid XML configuration

  • -4 = Failure to build list of signals out of XML configuration

  • 0 = success

Reset()

  • 0 = success

DefineSignal(string signalName, string furtherDefinition, out int dataType)

  • 0 = success

ActivateSignals(object signalNames, object statusFlags, out object results)

  • -1 = Connector not initialized or wrong signalNames parameter or wrong statusFlags parameter

  • 0 = success

Results parameter:

  • -1 = license quota insufficient to allow signal activation

  • -2 = Attempt to activate nonexistent signal

  • 0 = success

WriteSignalsAsync(object signalNames, object signalValues, out object results, out string guidAsync)

  • -1 = Connector not initialized or wrong signalNames parameter or wrong signalValues parameter

  • 0 = success

Results parameter:

  • -1 = Attempt to write to nonexistent signal

  • -2 = Attempt to write to signal, which is not writable

  • -3 = Attempt to write value of incompatible data type

  • -4 = Writing to wrong signal type

  • 0 = Write will be attempted

From asynchronous completion by OnWriteSignals result:

  • -5 = Starting write job ( for given PLC link ) failed

  • -6 = Writing of all signals in whole job failed

  • -7 = Writing of signal failed

  • 0 = success

WriteSignalSync(object signalNames, object signalValues, out object results)

  • -1 = Connector not initialized

Results parameter:

  • -1 = Attempt to write to nonexistent signal

  • -2 = Attempt to write to signal, which is not writable

  • -3 = Attempt to write value of incompatible data type

  • -4 = Writing to wrong signal type

  • -5 = Starting write job failed

  • -6 = Writing of all signals in whole job failed

  • -7 = Writing of signal failed

  • 0 = success
