How can I "see" my balance of memory available?

Hi All, Is there anybody out there who can steer me into finding out how much of which memory i have used of the target chip whilst I am still programming and before I "compile" the programme.

Re: Reset, abort or exit from anywhere in a flow hart

OK got the answer.....eventually, I simply used variable called "reset", checked it's value in Main : IF decision : connection point : to beginning and we start all over again.......so simple but a "light bulb" moment.
Thanks anyway
Cheers

Reset, abort or exit from anywhere in a flow hart

How can I reset my flowchart to the beginning if I am not in the main but two macros away. ie I called macro A from main and called macro B from macro A. Is it possible to go directly to main from B. Basically it's an option to be able to reset from any macro anywhere in the flowchart. Cheers for no...

Variable listing

Hi All,
Quick one.....Variables do not appear in alphabetical order, can any body tell me....
1) Why is that?
2) Is there a way to ensure that they always appear in some logical format making it easier to select in variable manager /properties etc.
3) Are they listed differently in V6?

Re: TMR 0 issue

Hi Martin,
Thanks for quick reply...
Any file I create using the interrupt runs at it's own pace, not real time.
I have just "written" a new file and tried a different approach but still same problem, will upload it as well.

Re: PWM Simulation V6

Big Thanks for such a quick response............The pwm image that I loaded, as you suggested, from "outputs" looks like a half completed line drawing....I think I must complete the project in V4, then come back to V6 and explore with less pressure.
Thanks again

PWM Simulation V6

Helleo all,
I have imported a pwm program which i built in V4. In V6 the simulation panel does not show the waveform when simulating. I only have a "blurred" image.
Have searched for answer no luck so far...

Re: PWM problem with 16f88

Thanks for reply, will assemble basic circuit as suggested. But I think the MCLR pull up resistor to Vdd is what I've missed in tutorials. Frustration subsiding, hope growing......nothing like a dangling carrot to keep up the interest...............
