Transferring graphics between pannels using semaphores and buffers in C#

Discussion in 'C#' started by Prevaron, Apr 26, 2014.

  1. #1
    I have a problem with my C#. Trying to create the airstrip with planes heading out of the hangars and on to the road to the airstrip. Each Hangar pannel is connected with closes road to them. What i am stuck with right now is connecting the roads together so each one of them will see if the next road is free and if it is it will send the plane (colorder square for now) to it and then proceed to the next one when finaly they will line up for the final panel(airstrip) and take off.
    SEMrush
    So far they are just going down the each road they are assigned with semaphore and thread.

    If one of you could help me connecting the "p2" with "p5" so the graphics from "p1" the square will travel through P2 and P5 this would be great and will allow me to procede with my studies.

    Thank you all in advance i appriciate the time you spend to take a look at this not high quality work and help people.

    P.S Sorry for the english it is not my first lanugage and if something is uncleare please feel free to ask. Thank you.

    Also i do realise that this might not be the best ways of using concurent Csharp and not the up to date one but this is what i have been assigned with and do not have any other options unfortunatley. Once again sorry and Thank you.

    How i understand this is that i need to have 3 buffers and 3 semaphores for each pannel. But i do not know how to add those to each one of them and then connect it with the next one as if i try and add them it eather puts a cross in the design view over that panel or says that there is limited options for this statement. Thank you.
