Re: Problems using the "find" function with the circular buf

Hi Ben,

Thanks for this it works a treat :D

I spent a while looking through the help files and was unable to find any info in regards to entering the data in the format "\x67\xfd\x27". Could the help files for the circular buffer be updated to include this as well?

Thanks

Re: DsPIC stops running if GLCD is included in the program

Hi Ben,

I will have a look today with my logic analyser and monitor the data going to and coming from the display when using an 8 and 16 bit chip using the same instructions and let you know the results.

Unable to access local variables in the simulation debugger

Hi,

During simulation i am finding that if you have jumped to a macro, in the simulation debugger window, if you want to add global variables to watch you are able to but are unable to access the local variables from the variable manager to add those as well.

Comments overlap each other

Hi,

No real issue, more of an appearance thing. In a flow chart where comments are present, the comments sometimes overlap each other.

Accessing data from within a circular buffer

Hi, A feature that i think would be handy would be to set a pointer in the buffer to access data from a given point. Instead of having to do a whole lot of successive reads to get to the data you need, setting the pointer you could access it directly. If you think this is a worthy additional feature...

Re: Accessing data from within a circular buffer

Hi benj, Giving direct control to the read pointer means you have to first know where you are in the buffer so you can then skip the required number of bytes which could get a bit messy. To use this function i would use the buffer so it was configured to "store x values first", so once the...

Re: Accessing data from within a circular buffer

Hi Benj,

If you could find a way of doing that, that would be great. It would help simplify code. In the mean time the other way works too :D
