Start Program with Visual Basic


Hi Everyone!

I recently purchased Dobot Magician and now I am trying to start one program (simple movements with suction cup) directly from MS PowerPoint presentation, with a command button for example.

So, basically how could I trigger start without mouse click in Dobot Studio?

Sorry if you already have such a discussion. I did search for similar topics but wasn’t able to find something similar…



“Performing Teaching & Playback Tasks” is propably what you need. Check this document on page 35 (40 of PDF, content 5.2):


marianexyz, thank you for your reply. Actually I downloaded and red the complete documentation that comes with Dobot Magician before I even posted my question…

In the meantime I’ve solved my issues with one Raspberry Pi and some coding in Python.
