How to code PLC/Lookout to wait for acknowledgements?

Can anyone provide suggestions on how to code PLCs and Lookout to wait for acknowledgements from each other or a reference to a discussion about this topic? 

 

Thanks,

 

Davey

Please be more detailed. 

 

Lookout polls PLC, PLC responds.  Is that acknowledgment?

Lookout polls PLC, PLC responds, Lookout performs a specific action after PLC responds

 

and also the reverse... 

 

PLC polls Lookout, Lookout responds, PLC waits until Lookout finishes responding.

 

 

There are a few different things I'd like to do:

 

 

1. Have Lookout PLC timers and counters with values from a DataTable.  The PLC should wait until the DataTable is completely updated.

 

2. Have Lookout save to a data file.  The PLC should wait until Lookout has completed saving the data.
