Merge 2 appliations into 1, Upgrade an old application adding features. Both applications provided.
Integrate the New Database/application design/application that impliments multiple pitch angle coils with the existing application that allows only 1 single pitch coil.
The New sample application (HotCoil3-VarPitch)displays a graphic of how the spring will look with the multiple pitch configuration. This multiple pitch configuration works on the center coils but does not take into account the first and last coil requirements.
The existing application database structure is correct for the runtime concerning (1st coil Pitch Add, 1st coil Pitch Dist, 1st coil Push Pitch,1st coil Push Dist, End Coil Pitch, and EndCoil Dist) ie.. the first and last coil requirements.
The existing application has 2 important screens The Runtime (FrmRMC) and the Product Configuration (frmProducts) Additionally it has some helper classes that assist in the runtime programming these are the (RMC70DataClass and RMC70Helper) Ther is also standard classes like SQLHelper, MathParse, Helper that can be used with new app or replaced with programmers choice.
The finished application will be installed on a 15" touchscreen so to enable Large Buttons and controls Infragistics components were used on the existing application, this is the programmers choice on how to impliment the Large Button requiremetns on the new application. I is acceptable to use "standard" controls as long as they are large enough for a touchscreen running 800x600.
This application is a User Interface to Control a machine that winds springs. The motion controller that is used is a Delta Computer systems RMC70 with the [url removed, login to view] interop enabling communication to the device. the (RMC70DataClass and RMC70Helper) is a wrapper around this interop to make it easier to programm using variablenames instead of address locations in the device. The latest version of this can be downoaded form their website.
Any questions, design ideas are encouraged.
