    So if I have a PLC how would I do that?

      When the UR is gluing and for some reason a protective stop occurs the glue stays on (making a mess), is there a way to turn the Glue output off and turn it on when the reset button is pressed? the issue is that on some parts of the program the glue should be off so I only need it to turn on if its on the specific position on the program.
      Thank you

    You can set the output to be low when not running, that will set it off anytime the program stops. 

    You would then need a thread monitoring the actual desired state of the button and setting the actual state to the desired state. So in your main program instead of setting the output on or off you would set the state to True or False, something like this.  Just set the thread to loop forever, that way when you restart the program the glue will turn back on if its needed to be

    local turnGlueOn = True # Would cause the glue to turn on
    turnGlueOn = False #Would cause the glue to turn off
    thread 1():
      set_standard_digital_out(PORT, turnGlueOn)
      while(get_standard_digital_out(PORT) == turnGlueOn):
