Reading a CAN message in a queue vs reading an objects value

Morning all,

I want to create a GUI that can read and write CAN messages from and to a pcb with CANOpen implemented on it.

I am using PCAN Basic API and I'm having trouble following the help guide to it. I have created a connection to the pcb with the Initialize(TPCANHandle, TPCANBaudrate) method but now I want to read the current node ID which is object 0x1014.

I'm not sure if I need to either use the read method or the getValue method.

Has anyone ever used PCAN Basic API and can anyone help me please?
