Re: ACSII <--> String

Just keep in mind to not exceed the length of the string - 1 with the index (number between the brackets) and to add str[last index + 1] = 0 if you are not using the entire string length as declared in Flowcode to avoid surprises.

Re: Arduino Nano, interrupt and UART questions

The dot is used for local (in contrast to global) variables.

The percentage sign is modulus and is used to calculate the remainder after division. So 105 % 20 = 5.

Re: One wire problems

You can ignore the warning, that will be issued in working setups as well.
The 1 wire component is extremely timing critical. Make sure to get oscillator set to highest possible speed and Flowcode set to the correct click so it can calculate the delays correctly.

Re: Bluetooth, android App & Bootloader

Writing a bootloader is not too complex, however most of the time a bootloader needs to be as small as possible, making Flowcode a less than optimal choice. (I’ve written a couple and am about to start on a new one which will probably be plain C code) Also, you don’t specify what programming languag...

Re: UART: "Send in succession"

Looking at the documentation you are sending the right sequence.

What voltage is the Arduino you are using? If 5V you might need to add pull-ups to RX and another signal (according to the manual see page 6 at the bottom)

Re: I2C versus SDI Diplays.

I2C graphic display require ram to store screen contents. When displaying new information you are adding pixels to whatever is on screen. The controller needs to know what is already on screen to add the pixels. The amount of ram required depends on the number of pixels on the display.

Re: Problem C Code in FC5

C code is not simulated in flowcode 5, so if you are looking at simulation only (which your screenshot suggests because there is no output) you are right.
You should upgrade to flowcode 8 which includes simulation of C code (and is supported, which flowcode 5 is no longer)

Re: SPI - Difference between V5 & V8

LEDs with SPI? Nice. Got a link for them?

I don't see any chip select being asserted in your program. Normally for SPI I would expect something (Output Icon) that drives an output pin to set the chip select (SS) line of the receiving SPI device to the required level. (Usually to 0).

Re: Force a Fixed Memory location for Variable

If you want to use this for Flowcode variables you will need some magic to include the right modifiers when it’s generating code. Ben will probably know what magic to apply as well as the right directive to use.
