8.11. How to check if the connection to 8SMC5-USB is established and still active during my session using the libximc library?

To constantly check for a connection between the controller and the libximc library, send the get_status command at regular intervals in the loop.

result_t XIMC_API get_status (device_t id, status_t *status)

The method described above can be implemented in any program that uses the libximc library.

Note

A similar connection verification method is implemented in XILab
