You add it to your project. And when you click on controls, it shows in the list.

You can add controls to a project in ARC with the Project -> Add Control button

Most all the robot program episodes demonstrate how to add a control to ARC. Check them out! Have fun:)

Oh, I also forgot that the manual page for all controls has instructions on how to add it to ARC. The control in question manual page is here: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Help.aspx?id=179

Look at the top of the page and it explains how to add the control to ARC. Once added, any controls added that are supported can be viewed with the Controls button, or use the applicable ShowControl() in ezscript.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm thinking I did not state my question correctly

I know how to add and use the variable watcher control in the desktop, but I don't see anyway to add it in the mobile interface

I'm not sure what you mean by the "Controls" button? I

However, I can see that if I add the control in the desktop, as you suggested, it is available in scripting but only with limited functions... i.e. it doesn't make it visible in the mobile interface

Maybe it would help if I explained what I'm trying to accomplish... they may be an easier way

I want to view the state of a digital input in the mobile interface. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Frank

1) Add the Variable Watcher to your ARC project. Consult the manual for the variable watcher on how to add controls. Press PROJECT->ADD CONTROL and locate the variable watcher. This will add the variable watcher to your project.

2) Save your project to the cloud

3) Load your project on a mobile device from the ez-cloud

4) Access the variable watcher with the CONTROLS menu option in the ARC mobile interfae

Alternatively, you can specify what control to have in the foreground in the mobile interface by using the ShowControl() function in the OnClick of a button. You can view what ShowControl() options exist by looking at the cheat sheet. Click on the Cheat Sheet <-here to read more about it.
