This application lets a user run scripts and watch their progress. It also lets a user activate the HTTP-based "API View" which provides a simple GUI for testing primitives. Scripts must be written in a separate editor program, such as Notepad.

The Output Sreen
This screen gives details of what the robot is doing. It lists primitives and their parameters along with status info when the primitives terminate.
The "Execute" Button
This button opens a file selection dialog that lets you select an XML script file. Once selected, the script is processed and all its primitives are queued for execution. A valid link with the robot must be established before this button will be enabled.
The "Halt" Button
This button will be enabled once there are primitives executing. This button stops any primitive currently running and flushes all remaining primitives from the queue.
The "API View" Button

The "Exit" Button
This button stops any primitive currently running and flushes all remaining primitives from the queue. Then the program exits.
