Program Dobot Magician in Python or C


Hi there!
I start to work with python and my robot magician. I saw the API tutorial but i have a trouble at understand how use this API
int GetDeviceName(char* deviceName, uint32_t maxLen)
please some one can give one example ?
and is possible program the robot in C language
Thank you soo much


i asked chatgpt and it gave me this code:
import ctypes

Load the Dobot API DLL

dobot_api = ctypes.cdll.LoadLibrary("DobotDll.dll") # Replace "DobotDll.dll" with the appropriate DLL file name

Define the function prototype for GetDeviceName

GetDeviceName = dobot_api.GetDeviceName

GetDeviceName.argtypes = [ctypes.c_char_p, ctypes.c_uint32]

GetDeviceName.restype = ctypes.c_int

Define the buffer to store the device name

device_name_buffer = ctypes.create_string_buffer(256) # Adjust the buffer size as needed

Call the GetDeviceName function

result = GetDeviceName(device_name_buffer, ctypes.sizeof(device_name_buffer))

Check if the call was successful

if result == 0:

Print the device name

print("Device Name:", device_name_buffer.value.decode())


Handle the error

print("Failed to retrieve device name. Error code:", result)

Hope it works for you


Thank you i ty and i let you know
