The SDK command set

Top  Previous  Next

The control defines functions by means of a Type Library – this means that VisualBasic 'knows' the format of all the commands, and the constant values used by the Control. To browse this library from within VisualBasic, press F2 to show the Object Browser, when the control is loaded into the toolbox. This will show all of the commands in the library – the meaning of these commands should be fairly self-explanatory.


Most of these commands send the corresponding command to the WhiskerServer. Details of the Whisker Command set can be found in the Programmer's Guide which accompanies the WhiskerServer software. The next section explains the extra functions which are provided by the SDK control in addition to the functions provided by WhiskerServer.


For some commands, there are some slight differences between the structure of the Whisker and the SDK command. These are listed here.
