In addition to CONNECT/DISCONNECT, such properties may include port name, IP address, etc. You should check if the device is already connected, and if this is true, then you must define the remainder of the the properties to the client in this function. Otherwise, the remainder of the driver's properties are defined to the client in updateProperties() function which is called when a client connects/disconnects from a device. More...

void setDynamicPropertiesBehavior (bool defineEnabled, bool deleteEnabled)
 setDynamicPropertiesBehavior controls handling of dynamic properties. Dyanmic properties are those generated from an external skeleton XML file. By default all properties, including dynamic properties, are defined to the client in ISGetProperties(). Furthermore, when ┼▒deleteProperty(properyName) is called, the dynamic property is deleted by default, and can only be restored by calling buildSkeleton(filename) again. However, it is sometimes desirable to skip the definition of the dynamic properties on startup and delegate this task to the child class. To control this behavior, set enabled to false. More...

Detailed Description

The MountDriver class provides a simple example for development of a new mount driver. Modify the driver to fit your needs.

It supports the following features:

On startup and by default the mount shall point to the celestial pole.

◆ sendCommand()

bool MountDriver::sendCommand ( const char *  cmd,

protected

Utility Functions.

sendCommand Send a string command to device.

Parameters
cmdCommand to be sent. Can be either NULL TERMINATED or just byte buffer.
resIf not nullptr, the function will wait for a response from the device. If nullptr, it returns true immediately after the command is successfully sent.
cmd_lenif -1, it is assumed that the cmd is a null-terminated string. Otherwise, it would write cmd_len bytes from the cmd buffer.
res_lenif -1 and if res is not nullptr, the function will read until it detects the default delimeter DRIVER_STOP_CHAR up to DRIVER_LEN length. Otherwise, the function will read res_len from the device and store it in res.
Returns
True if successful, false otherwise.
