Re: You Choose! - Next Flowcode Training Video Subject

Hey Matrix Team, Great suggestions in the post. Lots of pertinent topics. I would like to see more information regarding interrupts in Flowcode. What happens when setting an interrupt? Do I disable it when I jump to another macro? Do I need to enable when returning from a macro? How many interrupts ...

Re: Odd LCD behavior

Hi Leigh, Thanks for looking into this. Actually the Microchip documentation is wrong. The schematic does not match the layout or even their own documentation. The port D pin in the schematic are incorrect. The lower 4 bits of the D port are wired to the upper data pins of the LCD. A1, A2 and A3 are...

Re: Odd LCD behavior

Martin, Great idea to print out 16 characters to highlight the issue. I've changed the program to output the first 16 characters of the alphabet. I've attached the updated code and the output from the screen. Again the first 10 characters appear normal. It seems that the code then jumps forward 10 s...

Re: Odd LCD behavior

Hi Martin, So I have changed the code to use the eb005 component. Changed the pin assignments in the properties box and made provisions for the R/W signal in the code. Unfortunately, the behavior is the same. I have attached a photo of the output, a screen capture and the code itself. Any ideas as t...

Re: Odd LCD behavior

Hi Martin, I have tried changing the columns value in the properties box. I have tried 10,16,18 and 20 with no change. I've attached a screen shot of my code with the properties window open and set to 16. I also attached the output on the LCD from my PICDEM 2 Plus board. The capture shows the revers...

Odd LCD behavior

Hello, I am working on a PICDEM 2 Plus Demo board. I am trying to write to the LCD using the generic LCD component. It seems to work well for the most part but if I try to write more then 10 characters (left to right), the LCD seems to jump ahead and begins writing the characters backwards and in re...

Re: Missing Console

Okay, I looked at the post. Just so I'm clear in my understanding, the Console feature is indeed a part of the Test/debug package. I do not have that package in my license window. Thanks for clarifying this. I could not figure out where the console was and thought that I had deleted or closed someth...

Missing Console

Hello, I have been wanting to try some simulation on my code - some basic RS232 simulation. I have tried repeatedly to use the console in conjunction with the data injector to simulate some input. The problem is that I cannot see the console anywhere on my screen. I have tried to reset the views(res...

Re: SPI Output 0x55

Thank you for pointing out the peripheral components. I hadn't even noticed them. Using the SPI from that group seemed to do the trick. I was able to retrieve the correct values out of the sensor.

SPI Output 0x55

I hope some else has seen this and has a solution. I am trying to communicate with a digital temperature sensor(ADT7301)via SPI . Reading through the data sheet I came to find that the sensor would prefer to have input data streamed as zero's. Looking at the SPI output, I've notice that during a rea...
