hardware interfacing.

good day

hi, I am a student and we have a subject about hardware interfacing i want to know what are the easiest sample for hardware interfacing, with using visual basic 6.0 software for codings. i am just a beginner in that craft

response pls. :) thank you

what are the easiest sample for hardware interfacing, with using visual basic 6.0 software for codings

Something attached to the PC, like a serial port or something like that.

thank you for that information, ahm i want to know what will be the EXAMPLE output, the easiest one..

:) thanks for the response.

The MS Comm Control in visual basic is very useful for interfacing to the outside world and easy to use too it's all interupt driven, the easiest project depends on your skill for my first it was an 8ch logic analiser although i was using visual C++ at the time but not hard to convert, you might try creating a form in VB6 just to turn on individual outputs on the duino or maybe get analog input

what will be the EXAMPLE output

The output will be whatever you want it to be. It's not really a question for a microcontroller forum, though.

thank you for all your response its a big help ;)

The arduino is an embedded controller that presents itself to the outside world as a serial COM port. Any PC application that can communicate with a serial port can talk to the arduino. For example:- http://www.acraigie.com/programming/firmatavb/default.html and http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/InterfacingWithSoftware

You have to write code for running inside the arduino to take this serial communications and do what you want with it. One pre packages system is the Firmata. http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Interfacing/Firmata This has commands that allow reading and writing of the arduino pins but in effect transfers all the smarts into your PC.

i appreciate all your comments,, im so blessed that im here in your site thanks . :D
