  • remote program operation

    I would like to know if anyone knows how to open up & run multiple pc-dmis prgms from either another software or from within pcdmis by possibly creating a 'master program' that could read a line of code & open up any program?

    How could this be done? anyone have any examples?

    You want a VB front end program to achieve that. By multiple programs you mean run one after another? If so, then yes, you will need to create a VB program to do this.

      Do you have any examples of VB code or are there any in our training manuals or labs?

        They have one on the wilcox site http://www.wilcoxassoc.com/home.htm under the users area called start -pcdmis

              Whatchu talkin about Willis?

              he asked for an example... It seemed that the requests for help with VB were coming out of the woodwork today... hence the joke...

                Is it possible to do something similar with a subroutine instead of using VB?

                  It should be if you have an external alignment and each program strats with that. You may be able to set up a script or some staements to get to the right subprogram

                    each prgm is for a different gage in a different body space location with different alignments.

                      I have wondered about this but never tested it.

                      Can you use a "master" pcdmis program that calls the different part programs as sub routines. Each of the fixture locations could be saved as an external alignment and the called subroutine would recall that alignment.

                      I see most examples of subprograms as being a tool to do repetivite tasks but have never seen an example using it this way.

                        But as long as you can place them in the same location each time it should work you can change the alignment in the sub

                          any idea how I would start this master prgm? I would need to be able to insert any number of different gages every night. So as long as I could change the path to pull up different prgms & run them. I'm assuming that all of the prgms checked by it would probably have to have external alignments or could you just turn them off with a if/endif statement inside the prgm once a manual alignment was done?

                            You should need an external alignment if your doing a manual on each one. How many programs are you talking?

                              What is the difference between a regular program and one that is used as a SUB?
