Hi all,

I have some questions:
- Which type of application arduino plugin is? Is it a service, background application or which other?
- Can I create a similar plugin with Visual C#?

I want to create an application that permits to Arduino UNO, by USB-serial port, to interact with my MySql server.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Regards.
Giuseppe

What is an "Arduino plugin" - where did you come across the idea?

You can easily communicate with an Arduino using any PC programming language that can communicate using a serial port. That certainly includes C#.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Robin2 for your information: Arduino plugin is used for programming Arduino boards by Arduino Web Editor in place of Arduino IDE (desktop application).

Anyway thanks for your reply.

I have only used the Arduino IDE on my laptop.

From your Original Post it seems as if all you want to do is write a C# program that can receive data from an Arduino over a USB cable (serial connection) and save it to a MySQL database on your PC.

That should not be difficult to do. I don't use Windows myself (only Linux) so I am not familiar with C# but I'm sure it can do anything that Python can do.
