Multiple macro imports

Hi matrix team, Recently I have been doing a lot of work with macros – developing large applications by reusing pre-existing macro functionality. In my latest project I had to import up to 30 macros. The current functionality (unless I've missed something, which is quite possible) you can only impor...

Re: ESP-8266 com port injector

Thanks Ben, Currently trying to interface the dsPic miac to Thingspeak... The syntax for the Thingspeak API can be quite tricky to get right – I figured if I could simulate this it would cut down a lot of time in recompile/download/test etc... The idea behind connecting miac to Thingspeak is to capt...

Re: Timer2 interrupt no longer working in 18F43K22

Hi MTSL team, I too have been having difficulties with the simulation of interrupts. Doing some simple checks, it does not seem to matter which chip – looks like a generic problem as I have tested on miac, dsPic miac, ECIO40p etc, all with the same result. It appears that when you click on a compone...

ESP 8266 – not initialising

Hi Ben, As you know I've been doing some work with the ESP 8266 component on the dsPic miac. Would it be possible for you to do a quick check on this component please. It appears not to be reading any of the response data from the ESP 8266 device. For example if you initialise the component, using a...

Re: ESP8266 and MYSQL: anyone did it?

I'm currently operating in the Free mode which allows you to post at intervals of 15 second. The paid for version will allow updates every secon...

Re: ESP-8266 com port injector

Hey Ben, I understand that you are very very busy at the moment, and my apologies for being a pain in the proverbial backside! Any thoughts on when this function might be addressed? The other thing that is a complete pain in the backside at the moment is that the interrupt simulation in the latest v...

Re: ESP8266 and MYSQL: anyone did it?

Hi Ben, Thanks for your thoughts... If you think you're too old for Twitter, then I'm a dinosaur! :lol: I started off by looking at ifttt.com – agree it looks quite good however I couldn't get my head around interfacing it to miac at the time – now that I know a bit more, I'll go and have another lo...

Re: ESP-8266 com port injector

Hi Ben, I've had the opportunity to take a more detailed look at the new component. It does not give you the ability to select a physical com port from the PC as an injector source. As a test I added the com port injector icon on the 3D window – this didn't make any change to the ESP8266 component i...

Re: Rugby Atomic Clock Module

Sparkfun has combined GSM/gps modules. You can also obtain external antennas. Be careful when choosing an antenna as some of them are active units and require power to operate....I had to build a power insertion adaptor! A passive unit is what your after.... As for the GSM module... Once you have an...

Re: Connection point poll

Hi Steve,

Please don't remove this feature... I use the all the time, especially with case statements to jump out of the loop - it's great for MIAC and menus...

Having said that are you proposing an alternative?

FC 8 Helper tool

Gentlemen,

I was playing around with the 'component helper" tool today.. In the past I found it very useful as a lookup guide for the device/board/block pins

It's not a high priority – it would be great if you could include all of E–block 2 - boards...

Many thanks
