Hi Sefa, I see and yes we are planning a doing a series on exactly that – essentially step-by-step nuggets to get you up and running and proficient with these tools…it is in the queue to do this!

It sounds like you have the necessary background to make this work. What you will need to do is install the InGear software. This will add the necessary Assembly References to your development machine that is running VS. You’ll want to create a project and then add the required .dll’s to your project. I’ve uploaded an image that shows you this. Once you’ve done this step add the “Logix” namespace to your class and you will have access to the full NET.LOGIX methods and types.

Let me know how you make out.

A problem is only hard until you know how to solve it…then it's trivial!
