Re: Bad mistake in FC8!

Hi Everyone. Hope you don't mind me butting in. However, I too have just completed a 'clean build' of Windows 10 pro 1903. OS build 18362.365 There is a notable difference as to how OneDrive functions. All desktop icons are affected too. During the new install, Windows appears to use a system snap-s...

Re: Flowcode - FCD #C Help

Hi Everyone I just want to share this with you. I have been trying to get to grips with FC7 & 8 C code environment. I have discovered that, by simply clicking onto and dragging the variable across into the C icon space creates the correct syntax. And it compiles correctly too. FC7 C code generat...

Re: Flowcode - FCD #C Help

Hi Everyone I have been looking for some detailed information as to how to build a communication protocol to send/receive data to/from ink cartridges. The protocol is, as I have now concluded is more aligned to the SPI than I2C protocol, as there are no ack bits in the data collected from the cartri...

Re: Flowcode - FCD #C Help

Hi Ben Thank for the info and book, it's very much appreciated. I have seen the header files you mention with the Microchip MPLAB files, but I am unable to locate these files within FC. However, I like the suggestion you have provided on how to change individual register bits, this is exactly what I...

Re: Zero Crossing

Hi Everyone Hope you do not mind me joining your conversation. I have a circuit here that I used for a PID controller. It comprises a H11A1M zero detect chip that turns on only at the zero-crossing point via T1. However, this needs some extra control to produce something that fits a PIC controller. ...

Re: UART Component - Display error

Hi Martin

Thank you for your suggestion. However, the 'Table Top' slider is all the way to the left as you have indicated (3D View), therefore I am unable to adjust the component size. I was working using the 2D view which does not have that option.

Re: Component Creation

Hi CSM2711

You only get to see your 'USER' folder when a component has been placed into that folder. If it's empty, FC does not display it on the tool bar. If there are components in the 'USER' folder, try closing FC and restarting. It will then be displayed.
