loading and unloading from transporter in a track to a line using method?

Creator

hi..i'm very new to this software and i encounter a small problem while doing my practice for this software - a simple warehouse network. Is it possible to do the loading and unloading of goods to and from a transporter in a track to a line using method instead of transfer station? could anyone show me an example of it?

first, you should stop the transporter, then you load the content of the transporter to the line. You can use a sensor control to do this (right mouse click on the track...)

 

Within the sensor control you can access the transporter with @, so your program could look like this:

 

--stop the transporter

@.stopped.=true

--move the part to the line

@.cont.move(line)

--start the transporter

@.stopped:=false

i tried the suggestion but it appears to have this error:

A 'void' cannot accept the method 'move'

 

#i uploaded my file..perhaps you could have a look

test is the who i tried changing but it didnt work out

 

Thank you so much for the time and guidance

the code was  for unloading the transporter, see the file for loading parts from a line to transporter

thank you so much for the guidance...it solve the problem but my transporter could only move 1 box at a time eventhough i set the capacity to be 3... is there anything i should add to the method command to change the amount of loading?

- set the right capacity for the transporter
- copy the move command to move more parts
