Visual Basic .NET - RED Brick

This is the description of the Visual Basic .NET API bindings for the RED Brick. General information and technical specifications for the RED Brick are summarized in its hardware description.

An installation guide for the Visual Basic .NET API bindings is part of their general description.

Examples

The example code below is Public Domain (CC0 1.0).

API

Since Visual Basic .NET does not support multiple return values directly, we use the ByRef keyword to return multiple values from a function.

All functions and procedures listed below are thread-safe.

Note

The API documentation for the RED Brick is currently incomplete.

The RED Brick API is meant to be used by the Brick Viewer to implement the offered functionality (getting status information, managing programs etc.). Normal users will not need to use this API, it may only be interesting for power users.

FIXME: explain sessions

The RED Brick API operates on reference counted objects (strings, lists, files, directories, processes and programs) that are identified by their 16bit object ID. Functions that allocate or return an object ID (e.g. AllocateString() and GetNextDirectoryEntry()) increase the reference count of the returned object. If the object is no longer needed then ReleaseObject() has to be called to decrease the reference count of the object again. In contrast to allocation and getter functions, the reference count for an object returned by a callback is not increased and ReleaseObject() must not be called for such an object in response to a callback.

There are functions (e.g. GetFileInfo()) that only return valid objects under certain conditions. This conditions are documented for the specific functions. For invalid objects ReleaseObject() must not be called.

There are also function (e.g. SetProgramStdioRedirection()) that have conditionally unused object parameters. Under which conditions an object parameter is unused is documented for the specific functions. For unused object parameters 0 has to be passed as object ID.

The RED Brick API is more complex then the typical Brick API and requires more elaborate error reporting than the TCP/IP protocol can provide with its 2bit error code. Therefore, almost all functions of the RED Brick API return an 8bit error code. Possible error codes are:

  • Success = 0
  • UnknownError = 1
  • InvalidOperation = 2
  • OperationAborted = 3
  • InternalError = 4
  • UnknownSessionID = 5
  • NoFreeSessionID = 6
  • UnknownObjectID = 7
  • NoFreeObjectID = 8
  • ObjectIsLocked = 9
  • NoMoreData = 10
  • WrongListItemType = 11
  • ProgramIsPurged = 12
  • InvalidParameter = 128 (EINVAL)
  • NoFreeMemory = 129 (ENOMEM)
  • NoFreeSpace = 130 (ENOSPC)
  • AccessDenied = 131 (EACCES)
  • AlreadyExists = 132 (EEXIST)
  • DoesNotExist = 133 (ENOENT)
  • Interrupted = 134 (EINTR)
  • IsDirectory = 135 (EISDIR)
  • NotADirectory = 136 (ENOTDIR)
  • WouldBlock = 137 (EWOULDBLOCK)
  • Overflow = 138 (EOVERFLOW)
  • BadFileDescriptor = 139 (EBADF)
  • OutOfRange = 140 (ERANGE)
  • NameTooLong = 141 (ENAMETOOLONG)
  • InvalidSeek = 142 (ESPIPE)
  • NotSupported = 143 (ENOTSUP)
  • TooManyOpenFiles = 144 (EMFILE)

If a function returns an error code other than Success then its other return values (if any) are invalid and must not be used.

The error code InvalidOperation is returned if the requested operation cannot be performed because the current state of the object does not allow it. For example, trying to append an item to a full list object or trying to undefine an already undefined program.

The error code NotSupported is returned if the requested operation can never be performed. For example, trying to append a list object to itself, trying to get the name of a file object with type Pipe or trying to create a directory non-recursively with more than the last part of the directory name referring to non-existing directories.

String objects store UTF-8 encoded data.

Sub BrickRED.WriteFileAsync(ByVal fileId As Integer, ByVal buffer() As Byte, ByVal lengthToWrite As Byte)

Writes up to 61 bytes to a file object.

Reports the actual number of bytes written and the resulting error code via the AsyncFileWriteCallback callback.

If the file object was created by OpenFile() without the NonBlocking flag or by CreatePipe() without the NonBlockingWrite flag then the error code NotSupported is reported via the AsyncFileWriteCallback callback.

Sub BrickRED.SetFilePosition(ByVal fileId As Integer, ByVal offset As Long, ByVal origin As Byte, ByRef errorCode As Byte, ByRef position As Long)

Set the current seek position of a file object in bytes relative to origin.

Possible file origins are:

  • Beginning = 0
  • Current = 1
  • End = 2

Returns the resulting absolute seek position and error code.

If the file object was created by CreatePipe() then it has no seek position and the error code InvalidSeek is returned.

Sub BrickRED.GetProcessState(ByVal processId As Integer, ByRef errorCode As Byte, ByRef state As Byte, ByRef timestamp As Long, ByRef exitCode As Byte)

Returns the current state, timestamp and exit code of a process object, and the resulting error code.

Possible process states are:

  • Unknown = 0
  • Running = 1
  • Error = 2
  • Exited = 3
  • Killed = 4
  • Stopped = 5

The timestamp represents the UNIX time since when the process is in its current state.

The exit code is only valid if the state is Error, Exited, Killed or Stopped and has different meanings depending on the state:

  • Error: error code for error occurred while spawning the process (see below)
  • Exited: exit status of the process
  • Killed: UNIX signal number used to kill the process
  • Stopped: UNIX signal number used to stop the process

Possible exit/error codes in Error state are:

  • InternalError = 125
  • CannotExecute = 126
  • DoesNotExist = 127

The CannotExecute error can be caused by the executable being opened for writing.

Function BrickRED.GetAPIVersion() As Byte()

Returns the version of the API definition (major, minor, revision) implemented by this API bindings. This is neither the release version of this API bindings nor does it tell you anything about the represented Brick or Bricklet.

Function BrickRED.GetResponseExpected(ByVal functionId As Byte) As Boolean

Returns the response expected flag for the function specified by the function ID parameter. It is true if the function is expected to send a response, false otherwise.

For getter functions this is enabled by default and cannot be disabled, because those functions will always send a response. For callback configuration functions it is enabled by default too, but can be disabled by SetResponseExpected(). For setter functions it is disabled by default and can be enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

See SetResponseExpected() for the list of function ID constants available for this function.

Sub BrickRED.SetResponseExpected(ByVal functionId As Byte, ByVal responseExpected As Boolean)

Changes the response expected flag of the function specified by the function ID parameter. This flag can only be changed for setter (default value: false) and callback configuration functions (default value: true). For getter functions it is always enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

The following function ID constants are available for this function:

  • BrickRED.FUNCTION_EXPIRE_SESSION_UNCHECKED = 3
  • BrickRED.FUNCTION_RELEASE_OBJECT_UNCHECKED = 6
  • BrickRED.FUNCTION_READ_FILE_ASYNC = 21
  • BrickRED.FUNCTION_WRITE_FILE_UNCHECKED = 24
  • BrickRED.FUNCTION_WRITE_FILE_ASYNC = 25
Sub BrickRED.SetResponseExpectedAll(ByVal responseExpected As Boolean)

Changes the response expected flag for all setter and callback configuration functions of this device at once.

Sub BrickRED.GetIdentity(ByRef uid As String, ByRef connectedUid As String, ByRef position As Char, ByRef hardwareVersion() As Byte, ByRef firmwareVersion() As Byte, ByRef deviceIdentifier As Integer)

Returns the UID, the UID where the Brick is connected to, the position, the hardware and firmware version as well as the device identifier.

The position can be '0'-'8' (stack position).

The device identifier numbers can be found here. There is also a constant for the device identifier of this Brick.

Callbacks

Callbacks can be registered to receive time critical or recurring data from the device. The registration is done by assigning a procedure to an callback property of the device object:

Sub MyCallback(ByVal sender As BrickRED, ByVal value As Short)
    Console.WriteLine("Value: {0}", value)
End Sub

AddHandler red.ExampleCallback, AddressOf MyCallback

The available callback property and their type of parameters are described below.

Note

Using callbacks for recurring events is always preferred compared to using getters. It will use less USB bandwidth and the latency will be a lot better, since there is no round trip time.

Event BrickRED.AsyncFileReadCallback(ByVal sender As BrickRED, ByVal fileId As Integer, ByVal errorCode As Byte, ByVal buffer() As Byte, ByVal lengthRead As Byte)
