The API has the following limitations:

 

  1. It is only available within the licensed edition of CatTools (is not available with the Freeware edition).
  2. It is a part of CatTools and as such must be installed on the same computer as CatTools. (i.e. you can not take the .dll and use it from another computer to access CatTools on a remote computer.)
  3. The API is limited to database connectivity and accessing of the device and device related data. There are currently no activity related public classes available within the API to manage activities.
  4. Because the API is directly modifying the device data within the CatTools database (i.e. the underlying device values used within an activity), it would always be recommended that the CatTools scheduler timer has been stopped within the CatTools UI and that no activity is currently running before the API code/script is executed. ??Failing to do so may result in undesireable results.
  5. Starting and stopping of the CatTools scheduler timer has not been exposed in the API.
