Hard Drive Access?

Is there any way to read or write to a hard drive within the ARC?

I wrote a MS Kinect software application that writes Kinect date to text files and updates them in real time. (I call it the "painless data exchange protocol.")

It would be really great if I could get Kinect data into ARC.

If not directly, does EZ builder have the ability to run


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Stay on the cutting edge of robotics with ARC Pro, guaranteeing that your robot is always ahead of the game.


I think i figured it out :

Dim textStuff As string

textStuff = My.Computer.FileSystem.ReadAllText("C:\Users\Thomas\Desktop\stuff.txt")



Are you using the VB Scripting control? That'll be your best friend for custom scripting :)


Yup, I am using the VB scripting control.

Now that I have the data in a VB scripting control, how do I pass the info on to an EZ Script window? Is there an equivalent to the "ControlCommand( windowName, windowControlCommand )" that I can run from the VB scripting control? Are there global variables that can be access from the EZ script controls?
