Connecting Visual Studio.NET to TOP Server
The best way to get TOP Server information into your custom Visual Studio.NET project is through OPC. Since OPC DA technology currently uses COM interfaces the best method to use is an off-the-shelf .NET product for OPC DA connectivity which is tested and supported.
Software Toolbox offers a number of OPC DA tested clients for your Visual Studio.NET development environment including sample code to get you started.
OPC Data .NET is a 100% managed .NET tool for developing OPC DA and OPC A&E client applications, with native support for both 32-bit and 64-bit operatings systems in Visual Studio .NET winform or webform applications.
