Thetype exposes the following members.
Indicates whether the Rotator supports the Reverse method.
Reports True if the rotator and / or driver can perform a sync and False if it cannot.
Set True to connect to the device hardware. Set False to disconnect from the device hardware. You can also read the property to check whether it is connected. This reports the current hardware state.
Returns a description of the device, such as manufacturer and modelnumber. Any ASCII characters may be used.
Descriptive and version information about this ASCOM driver.
A string containing only the major and minor version of the driver.
The interface version number that this device supports. Should return 3 for this interface version.
Indicates whether the rotator is currently moving
This returns the raw mechanical position of the rotator.
The short name of the driver, for display purposes
Current instantaneous Rotator position, allowing for any sync offset, in degrees.
Sets or Returns the rotator’s Reverse state.
The minimum StepSize, in degrees.
Returns the list of custom action names supported by this driver.
The destination position angle for Move() and MoveAbsolute().
Invokes the specified device-specific custom action.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and does not wait for a response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and waits for a boolean response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Transmits an arbitrary string to the device and waits for a string response. Optionally, protocol framing characters may be added to the string before transmission.
Dispose the late-bound interface, if needed. Will release it via COM if it is a COM object, else if native .NET will just dereference it for GC.
Causes the rotator to move Position degrees relative to the current Position value.
Causes the rotator to move the absolute position of Position degrees.
Moves the rotator to the specified mechanical angle.
Launches a configuration dialog box for the driver. The call will not return until the user clicks OK or cancel manually.
Syncs the rotator to the specified position angle without moving it.
The rotator system (including its firmware and driver) is responsible for managing cable wrap prevention behaviour. Client applications must be able to position the rotator from any angle (0 <= angle < 360) to any angle (0 <= angle < 360) without regard to equipment clearance or cable considerations. If needed, the rotator may provide a user interface to configure specific behaviour in the driver's SetupDialog.
