 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello. I need a advice. I want to make program in C# which is ploting a real-time graph according to temperature change readed from Arduino. I'm using VS 2012. I don't know how to start - if you've any links/guidelines I would be grateful.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...

Do you really need to do this?

Do you know of the PLX-DAQ macro? You may find that is all you want.

The following shows how Arduino goes with it. The serial commands are all you need.

//  code uses Arduino LCD stuff, for shield on Freetronics EtherTen.
//  Serial print commands are for PLX-DAQ
//  Research your own pins!

#include <OneWire.h>
#include <DallasTemperature.h>
#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

LiquidCrystal lcd(8,9,56,5,6,7); // patchwire is D4 to A2 (pin16) on this proto
int flag;
// Data wire is on pin 3
#define ONE_WIRE_BUS 3
// Setup a oneWire instance to communicate with any OneWire devices
OneWire oneWire(ONE_WIRE_BUS);

// Pass our oneWire reference to Dallas Temperature.
DallasTemperature sensors(&oneWire);

// Assign the addresses of your 1-Wire temp sensors.
DeviceAddress InThermo = {  
  0x28, 0x69, 0xC2, 0xB0, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0X9F };
DeviceAddress OutThermo = {
  0x28, 0x7A, 0x8B, 0xC0, 0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x2F };

//temperature variables
float InTemp, OutTemp, diff, drain, flow, power, tempC;

void setup(void)
  // start serial port

  // set up the LCD,s number of columns and rows:
  lcd.begin(16, 2);
  // Print a message to the LCD.
  lcd.print("temp in     out");    

  // Start up the library
  sensors.setResolution(InThermo, 12);
  sensors.setResolution(OutThermo, 12);

void loop(void)
    Serial.print("DATA,TIME,       ");
  flag = 0;
  //Get the sensor readings. There are two of them

  flag = 1;

  diff = tempC - InTemp;
  Serial.print (diff);
  Serial.println(" ,  ");


void GetandPrint(DeviceAddress deviceAddress)
  tempC = sensors.getTempC(deviceAddress);
  if (tempC == -127.00) {
    Serial.print("Error getting temperature");
  else {
    Serial.print(" ,  ");
  lcd.setCursor (1,1);
  if (flag==1)
    lcd.setCursor (11,1)
  lcd.print (tempC);
