[Imported] Using the .NET Client API to add a Scanner with Refresh() to a Schedule.

>>Message imported from previous forum - Category:ClearSCADA Software<<

Is it possible via the .NET Client API to add Scanner objects, to call the Refresh method, to a Schedule? I'd also like to potentially remove the object too!

I can't seem to find anything in the .NET ClearSCADA API help file. I have tried GetObject on a schedule and called the ClassDefiniton property to look at it's schema, but can't seem to find a collection to add and remove objects?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Out of curiosity -- what all are you trying to achieve by issuing a refresh?

I believe you need to use the ViewX automation interface rather than .NET API to modify those entries on a schedule. Unfortunately the ViewX automation is neither documented or officially supported, so you'll need to find inspiration on these forums (most of the good stuff were on the old forums but that's a different discussion)

I understand this might not be the worlds most helpful answer, but I don't have access to any relevant code at the moment so can't give specifics.

That's a shame that I can't use the .NET API. I must admit I have never tried the ViewX automation interface, but at least you have pointed me in the right direction.

I'll see what I can find. Thank you for such a quick reply!
