Parameter values for extra

extraPhidget typeDescription
"autoDetect" RFID Use this flag to autodetect the tag protocol from the tag. Without this flag, the first 5 characters of the tag content is converted into 10 character long string to ensure backward compatibility with solutions created for plug-in version 1.x.
Note: all new solutions are recommended to use this flag.

Description

The "General" Phidget Type can be used with all Phidgets. The default input for all Phidgets is the first valueID for each phidget in this list. For example calling Phidget_Read( -1 ; "inputValue" ) is the same as Phidget_Read( -1 ; "motorPosition" ) for PhidgetServo.

Result

Function returns data from Phidget if everything is OK. In case of error the function returns "?". You can use Phidget_Get("lastError") for more detailed error description.

Examples

Phidget_Read(-1 ; "inputValue")
The most basic reading. This command will read an "inputValue" from a connected Phidget. If more than one device is connected the plug-in will choose the first device which was connected.

Phidget_Read(335882 ; "sensorValue" ; 3)
Reads a value from the fourth sensor of the InterfaceKit. If the field phidgetSNdevice does not contain correct serial number of the the Interface Kit Phidget (which must be connected in the time of reading) than the function will fail and returns "?".

Phidget_Read(335882:3"335882:3"; "bridgeValue" ; 1)
Reads value from port 1 on Phidget Bridge with Phidget serial number 335882 connected to 3rd VINT port. If the port is disabled or any other error occured than the function will fail and returns "?".

Phidget_Read(335882 ; "tag")
Reads tag value from Phidget RFID.

Phidget_Read(335882 ; "tag")
Assume, that tag contains value "hello world!" using protocol PHIDGET. Because "autoDetect" is not used, output value is converted to "68656c6c6f".

Phidget_Read(335882 ; "tag" ; 0 ; "autoDetect")
Assume, that tag contains value "hello world!" using protocol PHIDGET. This returns "hello world!".

Phidget_Write( phidgetSNdevice ; valueID ; data { ; index { ; tagProtocol } } )

Data to the Phidget are written or set.

Parameters

phidgetSNdeviceIdentification of device
valueIDSpecifies which data should be written
dataData to write or set. Please use FileMaker number type for numbers and text for strings. The plug-in will try to convert them if necessary.
indexDefault to 0. Index of the port of IO Phidget or another index information if needed.
tagProtocolDefault to PHIDGETS. See tag protocols for more information.

Parameter values for valueID

valueIDPhidget typeDescription
"outputState" GeneralWrite value to default output
"outputState" Interface KitWrite data to digital output
"outputState" RFIDNew value to the output is written
"tag" RFIDNew tag is written. Note: antenna has to be turned on before reading. See Phidget_Set.
"motorPosition" Servo and StepperSets the new motor position
"displayString"TextLCDNew text to LCD is written on the first row
"voltage"AnalogAllows to set voltage level of given port. Don't forget to enable port in order to make it work.

Description

The "General" valueIDs can be used with all sensors. The default output for all Phidgets is the first valueID for each Phidget in this list. For example calling Phidget_Write( -1 ; "outputState" ; 20 ) is the same as Phidget_Write( -1 ; "motorPosition" ; 20 ) for PhidgetServo.

Result

Function returns 0 if everything is OK. In case of error the function returns negative error code or Phidget Error code"?". You can use Phidget_Get("lastError") for more detailed error description.

Examples

Phidget_Write(-1 ; "outputState" ; 20)
This will write a value "20" to the first connected phidget if it is possible.

Phidget_Write( phidgetSNDevice ; "motorPosition" ; 215)
It rotates the servo in PhidgetServo to 215 degrees. PhidgetSNDevice parameter should contain a valid serial number of connected servo phidget.

Phidget_Write( 69418 ; "outputState" ; 1 ; 5)
Sets the sixth output of the interface kit phidget with serial number 69418 to 1.

Phidget_Write( 335882 ; "tag" ; "Your text." )
New tag is written. Used tag protocol: PHIDGETS (See tag protocols for more information.)

Phidget_Write( phidgetSNDevice ; "tag" ; "999123456789012"; 0 ; "ISO11785_FDX_B" )
New tag is written. Used tag protocol: ISO11785_FDX_B (See tag protocols for more information.)

Phidget_Write( phidgetSNDevice ; "displayString" ; "Hello World!"; 0)
New text is written on the first row. Note: Rows are indexed from zero. If text is not visible, please check backlight, brightness and contrast.

Phidget_Write( phidgetSNDevice ; "displayString" ; "special chars: "& char(224) & char(225) & char(226) & char(227) ; 1)
Special characters on the first row are written. More about special characters can be found here.

Phidget_Write( phidgetSNDevice ; "outputState" ; 2,6 ; 1)
Set output voltage to 2,6V on port 1 (assuming this port is enabled).

Phidget_SetScriptEvent( phidgetSNdevice ; event/time ; scriptName { ; index { ; changeAmount { ; threshold } } } )

Tell the plug-in to launch the script when specified event is triggered by the Phidget or in specified time intervals.

Parameters

phidgetSNdeviceIdentification of device
eventThe event when the script should be triggered. Use FileMaker text to describe it. I.e. "onSensorChange".
timeThe time interval on which the script should trigger. Use FileMaker number i.e. 1.8. Time is in [s]. Time must be a positive number. Setting time lower than 1 s is not recommended.
scriptNameThe name of script which should be triggered. The script will receive a parameter which will contain at least phidgetSNDevice on the first row. More values can be added depending on the event.
indexThe index of analog input or output to trigger the script. The script will be triggered only if the value will exceed changeAmount. If omitted the script will be triggered every time when any of inputs/outputs are changed regardless of its number.
changeAmountThe amount of change that should exist between the last reported value and the current value before an event triggers. The default is 1. This cannot be changed for binary inputs or outputs. Use FileMaker number. Param changeAmount can be used only on onSensorChange event, it is ignored on other events.
thresholdThe script will not be triggered until the sensor value exceeds threshold. Use it as a simple noise filter. It has no meaning for binary inputs/outputs. The default value is 0 - no filtering.

Parameter values for event

eventPhidget typeDescriptionScript is given parameters (return-delimited):
"onAttach" GeneralRun the script when some phidget is attached. PhidgetSNDevice must be set to "all". PhidgetSNdevice
"onDetach" GeneralRun the script when some phidget is detached. PhidgetSNDevice must be set to "all". PhidgetSNdevice
"onInputChange"GeneralRun the script when default input is changed PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onInputChange"Interface KitRun the script when digital input is changed PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onSensorChange"Interface KitRun the script when the value from connected sensor or VINT sensor is changed. The amount can be set by the changeAmount. PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onOutputChange"Interface KitRun the script when output is changed PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onTag" RFIDRun the script when a tag approaches RFID sensor PhidgetSNdevice index tagBackwardCompatibleString tagValueString
"onTagLost" RFIDRun the script when a the sensor losts the connection with a tag PhidgetSNdevice index tagBackwardCompatibleString tagValueString
"onOutputChange"RFIDRun the script when output is changed PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onMotorPosChange"Servo and StepperRun the script when the motor position is changed PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onBridgeData" BridgeRun the script when dataRate time has passed PhidgetSNdevice index value
"onStepperStop" StepperRun the script when stepper motor stops. PhidgetSNdevice index value

Description

Some events are the same for more Phidgets. The "General" event "onInputChange" can be installed to all listed Phidgets and it will behave as their default input event. For example: Phidget_SetScriptEvent( -1 ; "onInputChange" ; "Do Something" ) has the same meaning as Phidget_SetScriptEvent( -1 ; "onMotorPosChange" ; "Do Something" ) for PhidgetServo or Phidget_SetScriptEvent( -1 ; "onTag" ; "Do Something" ) for PhidgetRFID. If "onInputChange" is used, the phidget type is detected automatically and the event is installed to it.
Param changeAmount can be used only on onSensorChange event. On other events it is ignored.

In both cases (event/time) the script will receive a parameter containing the value list with phidgetSNdevice, inputIndex and inputValue. Values for digital input can be "0" or "1" for analog it varies by the type of the event.

To remove event call Phidget_SetScriptEvent( phidgetSNdevice ; event/time ; "" ).
To remove all events from some phidget call Phidget_SetScriptEvent( phidgetSNdevice ; "" ; "" ).
To remove all events from all Phidgets call Phidget_SetScriptEvent( "" ; "" ; "" ) or Phidget_SetScriptEvent( "all" ; "" ; "" ).

Result

Function returns 0 if event is successfully installed or uninstalled. In case of error the function returns negative error code or Phidget Error code"?". You can use Phidget_Get("lastError") for more detailed error description.

Examples

Phidget_SetScriptEvent(-1 ; 1.2 ; "Default Script")
This will install the script named "Default Script" to the first available connected phidget. The script will run every 1.2 second and it will obtain a parameter which consist of serial number, "0" and input value. Each on new line. The "0" signals that the input on index 0 is beeing read.

Phidget_SetScriptEvent(phidgetSNdevice ; "onTag" ; "Process new tag")
The script "Process new tag" will be triggered every time the new RFID tag is in the vicinity of the RFID phidget. The script will receive a parameter with phidget serial number, "0" and RFID value of the tag. Each on the new line. The zero means, that the first input of RFID phidget is used.

Phidget_SetScriptEvent(69418 ; "onSensorChange" ; "Read sensor" ; 6 ; 10 ; 5)
This will install "onSensorChange" event to the interface kit phidget with serial number 69418. The phidget must be connected. The "Read sensor" script will be triggered when the seventh sensor's value on the interface kit phidget with SN 69418 will change more than 10 points and will be higher than 5. The script will receive the parameter which will contain: "69418", "6" and sensor value. Each on the new line.

Phidget_SetScriptEvent("all" ; "onAttach" ; "New phidget attached")
The script "New phidget attached" will be called every time when user will connect a new phidget to the system. The script will receive a parameter with serial number of the new connected phidget.
