1. PI-SDK Tutorials

These tutorials are aimed at first-time users of the PI-SDK in several environments. If you have not programmed using COM objects before, this is a good place to start. Having finished the tutorial for a language, your next step might be to review sample code that employs some of the features you are interested in. Sample code can be found on the PI-SDK Web site discussed in the Support section. Experienced users will consult the reference material in the online help almost exclusively. The reference material for objects, properties, and methods also contains many examples using Visual Basic.

The complete code for the tutorials at significant steps can be found in the online help file under Tutorial Code.
