Creating a C# application to control the robot


I am knew with all the abb software.
I am trying to develop a sort of library in C# that will allow me the access to the main functions of the robot. For instance a move linear function were I can define the target point. 
Does anyone have any small example, of how to do it?? There is any tutorial?? I am reading the manuals right now but it is so many things that I would be thankfull for any advice. To control the robot through C# do I need to write anything in RAPID.

Thank you in advance.

My best regards.

    yes you need to make an application on visual studio which can connect to robotstudio and send positions as string values. basically u have to do socket programming between RS and VC.. Now when you have a client ready in VC u need to make the listen server in Robotstudio and establish comm. between both. After that you have to make a function to convert strings to targets for Robot in RAPID and distinguish between each string value u send for coordinates., this is a bit tricky but try.
