Hi

When you use the setpower the driver is not enabled – which of cource it should… so this is a bug.

You can fix it your self. Go to motor.cs and locate:


/// <summary>
/// Sets the power of the motor.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="power">Power to use.</param>
/// <param name="reply">If set to <c>true</c> reply from brick will be send.</param>
public void SetPower(byte power, bool reply){
    output.SetPower(power, reply);
}

And replace this with

                       
/// <summary>
/// Sets the power of the motor.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="power">Power to use.</param>
/// <param name="reply">If set to <c>true</c> reply from brick will be send.</param>
public void SetPower(byte power, bool reply){
    output.SetPower(power, reply);
    output.Start(false);
}

once this is done you should be able to use the setpower function like this

using System;
using MonoBrick.EV3;
using System.Threading;
using System.Diagnostics;

public static class Program{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        var ev3 = new Brick<Sensor,Sensor,Sensor,Sensor>("usb");
        ev3.Connection.Open();
        ev3.MotorA.SetPower(80);
        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5000);
        ev3.MotorA.SetPower(0);
        ev3.Connection.Close();
    }
}

Thanks

Anders
