Controls In A New Form?

Hi DJ! After a couple of hours programming in Visual C# I was wondering if it was possible to send commands (for example set servoposition) from another form than the main form containing the ezb-connect.

Hope you understand what I'm trying to do:P Have the main form display the connect to ezb, and a button to open a new form where there are buttons to control servos.

Thank you :-)

Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Pro is your passport to a world of endless possibilities in robot programming, waiting for you to explore.


All of my programming experience is from VB6, so I can't tell you how to do it in c# yet (I plan on getting a book or taking a class) but I can affirm what you want to do is certainly possible. In vb6, you woukd add the control to one form (lets say form1) and if you wanted to use it from another form, you would use form1 as the first part of the control name.


Rc = form1.control1.method(parameter1,parapmeter2,etc) If rc = 0 "success" Else "failure" Endif



Hey there!

Add the EZ-B Connect control. Look through the property panel for the control and set it to PUBLIC.

From another form, you can now reference that form's public objects (ez-b connect being one of them)

You may have to pass an instance of the form (this) to the other form. :)


Didn't fully understand that, sorry confused
