Please forgive the me, I have a couple of basic questions and would like to know what you all think is the best, easiest, cleanest approach.
What I want to do is pretty simple, at least in my mind ;D
I have a Windows .NET app that looks for the status of something to change. If it changes, it does a screen pop. If I click “ack and reset” to acknologe that I read the pop, it changes the status back to normal.
What I want to do is hook up a FEZ Panda USB to the PC. If my app detects a status change, I want to send the message to the FEZ and have it display a message on a Serial display and lamp an LED. If a press a contact button on the FEZ, I want it to be like clicking the ack in the in my app and reset the status back to normal.
My question is how to go about this the easiest, cleanest way. My first thought was to try to do something to communicate with CDC. I’m alright with that I guess, just curious if there was some better way. Like I suppose the button press could be HID keyboard event?
