Component Creation Tutorials

Postby Jordy101091 » Sun Mar 23, 2014 5:29 pm

Hi all,

I thought it would be a really good time to wright my own tutorials based on my experience in creating components for flowcode.
I sometimes see that people ares struggling to create ore start creating there own components, that was the reason for me to make tutorials available to the flowcode
community so that the creation of components becomes more popular.

I would like to see ad one day some kind of marketplace for the user created component, this is not going to be happening with only a hand full of component.
So we need to start developing our own components.

I hope you find this useful, and If you have you own tutorials the please share it with me/us

Thank you so much for writing the tutorial. I have been struggling with trying to understand how to create component macros. I am confused by the usage of "this". I am not sure what that term is referring to. Is it referring to, the Property name that you type into the Property field? What does "this" mean?

By using this for the variable "Handle" you are basically telling the macro to refer to its self.
So simple said "this" is this component. But if you want the refer to let's say the I2C_Master1 component then instead of
Using this you would use "I2C_Master1".

Hope this help you understand, if you mis anything in the tutorial please let me know.
Regards Jordy.

Hi Jordy,

Thanks for the great job ! I have now some basements to start creating components :)

Personally I find that Matrix doesn't give enough documentation about this stuff and it's counter productive.

Come on Matrix :wink:

Regards,
Bernard
