2.3.4 - eReadAddresses

Read multiple values, specified by address.


                      int Handle, 
                      int NumFrames, 
                      const int * aAddresses,
	              const int * aTypes,	
                      double * aValues, 
                      int * ErrorAddress)


Handle [in]
A device handle. The handle is a connection ID for an active device. Generate a handle with LJM_Open or LJM_OpenS.
NumFrames [in]
The total number of frames to access. A frame consists of one value, so the number of frames is the size of the aAddresses array. 
aAddresses [in]
An array of addresses that specify the Modbus register(s) to read. Addresses can be found throughout the device datasheet or in the Modbus Map.
aTypes [in]
An array containing the data type of each value:
Type LJM Constant Name LJM Constant Value
unsigned 16-bit integer LJM_UINT16 0
unsigned 32-bit integer LJM_UINT32 1
signed 32-bit integer LJM_INT32 2
floating point 32-bit LJM_FLOAT32 3
aValues [out]
An array of values received from the device. The array size should be the size of the aAddresses array.  The output data type of each value is a double, and they will be converted from the data type entered in aTypes.
ErrorAddress [out]
If error, the address responsible for causing an error.


LJM errorcodes or 0 for no error.


This function is used to read a handful of values at once, and is useful in programming languages that are not friendly towards the usage of strings.  For programming languages that can use strings easily, see LJM_eReadNames. More code examples coming soon.


[C/C++] Reading analog inputs 5, 6, and 10.

int LJMError;
int errorAddress;
int aAddresses[3] = {10, 12, 20};
int aTypes[3] = {3, 3, 3};
double ainValues[3];
double ain5;
double ain6;
double ain10;

// handle comes from LJM_Open()
LJMError = LJM_eReadAddresses(handle, 3, aAddresses, aTypes, ainValues, &errorAddress);
if (LJMError != LJME_NOERROR) {
    // Deal with error
ain5 = ainValues[0];
ain6 = ainValues[1];
ain10 = ainValues[2];
