C++ ISOTPclass

Post by ValeV » Thu 31. Jan 2019, 14:35

Heyall,

I saw that for PCAN Basic API you provide files 'PCANBasicClass.h' and PCANBasicClass.cpp', which define functions bodies and whatnot from PCANBasic library 'PCANBasic.h'.

I have troubles finding similar class files for ISO-TP library 'PCAN-ISO-TP.h'. Is there one or do I write it on my own?

Hello,

the PCANBasicClass.cpp/h are part of the PCAN-Basic example. They are intended to facilitate the loading of the PCANBasic.dll dynamically.

ISO-TP samples are using static dll loading (using a lib file) and for that reason there is no help class as the mentioned above. Nevertheless, we encourage our users to load dlls dynamically. If you want to do so, then you need to write your own class for it. You can take PCANBasicClass.cpp/h as sample for it.
Best regards,

Thank you for replying.

How do you encourage? Not trying to be sarcastic, just asking if there is some stuff available to use already.

Hello,

We let the users now this (as I just doing with you) when such question appears :D We let these examples with static lib for simplicity. The PCTPClient/PCTPServer samples are intended for hardware developers. For many of them it is easier to use a lib instead of having a dynamic link, so they can concentrate in the services, avoiding reviewing extra code.

You also get with the ISO-TP package samples with user interface (PcanIsoTpExample). Here the samples are written in .NET (which uses dynamic link).

OK, thank you. :) If I will have any questions, I will ask here or make new thread, depending if you want to lock this thread or not.
