How can I pull a variable from the module/routine with pc sdk?

I set up a variable in my module - var time. How can I pull this variable info from that module/routine with pc sdk?

     This should do what you want, it will return all rob targets for each task.
    RsTaskCollection tasks = irc5controller.Tasks;
                foreach (RsTask task in tasks)
                    RsDataDeclaration[] datadecls = task.FindDataDeclarationsByType(typeof(RsRobTarget));
    You just need to change the RsRobTarget for what ever data type your variable is.

    RsTaskCollection is ABB.Robotics.RobotStudio.Stations class and irc5controller is an instance of the Controller class correct? It given me an error in this line: RsTaskCollection tasks = irc5controller.Tasks - problem with Tasks - "irc5controller" does not contain a definition for the Tasks. How can I do this without of using RobotStudio classes?

    Here what I've post to EugeneB for other:
    You can found in GetModule() how I do to find data.
    //First prepare search
                        RapidSymbolSearchProperties rssp = RapidSymbolSearchProperties.CreateDefault();
                        rssp.GlobalSymbols = true;
                        rssp.InUse = false;
                        rssp.LocalSymbols = true;
                        rssp.Recursive = false;
                        rssp.SearchMethod = SymbolSearchMethod.Block;
                        rssp.Types = SymbolTypes.Data;
    //Then look at all data in module
                        string typeName = "";// "GfxShapeData"; Don't find GfxShapeData Directly.
                        RapidSymbol[] rsArray = module.SearchRapidSymbol(rssp, typeName, string.Empty);
                        foreach (RapidSymbol rs in rsArray)
                            RapidData rd = module.GetRapidData(rs);
                            RapidDataType rdt = controller.Rapid.GetRapidDataType(rs);//Only grabe GfxShapeData, here you can do what you want like read rd.Name                        if (rd.RapidType == "GfxShapeData")
                                sDatasList += ";" + rs.Name;

    In GetGfxShapeData I pull data, it's more complicated as it's a record type.
                        RapidData rd = module.GetRapidData(sDataName);
                        if (rd.RapidType == "GfxShapeData")
                            RapidDataType rdt = controller.Rapid.GetRapidDataType(task.Name, module.Name, rd.Name);

                            sd = new GfxShapeData(rdt, rd);
                            if (sd.IsNotNull)
                                //Update Properties
                                component.Properties["ShapeType"].Value = (sd.ShapeType == GfxShapeData.ShapeTypes.Box) ? "Box" : "Capsule";
                                component.Properties["ParentAxis"].Value = sd.ParentAxis.Value;
    Here a simple example to get a PERS bool bTest:=FALSE; value:
                        RapidData test = module.GetRapidData("bTest");
                        string s = test.StringValue;
                        Bool bTest = (Bool)test.Value;

    Bool is on namespace ABB.Robotics.Controllers.RapidDomain.
