so, Paul, how about that sample code? Thanks.

I'm not married to VB 2010 so bring on the sample code! Which environment can i code in C#?

now i know that i can use C# in VB. see what i'm looking for is to be able to get read outs and have them on the screen in a sort of UI with controls and stuff. So do you mean use C# in VB instead of the VB language or use C# in another program and if so can i still have a UI similar to VB?

That was the first thing i tried and that didn't work at all. i loaded up the standard firmata and tried both VB programs the tutorial had and neither worked.

I have been a big fan of arduino ever since i saw it on Instructables. I bought a arduino duemilanove for my first explorations into the PLC. i recently received a robot from Robotshop.com, his name is Doug, he has the same micro-controller the other board i own. As much as i like the arduino programming platform adn i know i can easily write a program to turn his motors on and off with, lets say, a wii nuchuck. I like the idea of using Visual Studio 2010 to control him. i have a bunch of sensors and stuff that it would be cool to see the inputs on a screen, like the level of ambient light or the temperature and display it on a form as an actual value. I do not know where to begin, I've been all over this forum, google, VB Help, and i can't get it to work. I've tried firmata and a sample program that is up in the playground for arduino. I feel if i can figure out how to press a button in VB 2010 and get the LED on Pin 13 to light up i could expand upon this and get the motor to work and get read outs from my sensors. Please help.

problem is i'm using VB 2010 some of code is probably different.

I am trying to do a similar thing with a robot i got from robot shop with the Arduino micro-controller and i want toy use VB 2010 to control it and give read outs from it's sensors to VB to be displayed on the screen. Do i need any special objects on the form or any special code in the arduino ,like firmata, or can i just write the code as you have it and accomplish the same thing?
