Re: Login FC9!

Same here, My username and password for this "old" forum isn't the same as for the new forum. In the new forum I can't use my old username.. Used my Matrix login credentials for the new website and this works, but not on the forum. I managed to login to the forum on the new V9 website a while ago, b...

Re: Flowcode 9

Time for a separate FC9 forum like the previous versions? I agree that commercially Matrix does a smart job by making separate packs. In the past I used many components, some just a few times in a project, just for hobby. But with FC8, I needed to buy several packs just to cover my needs just in tha...

Re: Tough question: Brexit...

I've discussed with colleagues and as far as we know, VAT will be payable and charged in your country. There is currently a scheme called VAT MOSS which helps with this, but that's probably going to change. To be honest, there is not much info around and probably won't be until we reach a deal (or ...

Tough question: Brexit...

Maybe this isn't the most popular thing to ask on this forum, but will the Brexit have any consequence on Flowcode? I mean, if Britain bounces out of the European market, will there be extra taxes or restrictions raised upon Flowcode products? I know I don't make friends in the UK by asking this, bu...

Find first 0-bit in an array

I have a variable array, let's say data[20]. These are filled with data. In this array I need to find the first 0 byte. So if the array looks like data[1] = 11111111 data[2] = 11111111 data[3] = 110101 0 1 data[4] = 11010101 data[5] = 11110111 ..... This has to return the 2nd bit of the 3th byte. Th...

Timeline for changes

In some 3D design software there is a timeline that you can use to return to a previous state of the project. All changes are recorded on this timeline. This would be a nice feature in a program as Flowcode too. After a few hours fiddling, and when you find out that the changes don't work, it would ...

Another idea - use the CAL_UART component - there are Receive Array / String macros with a timeout. Just used with dfplayer and seem to work well... Thanks MNF..

Re: Catch incoming data without interrupt

It's possible but not easy. You could busy wait watching the rx pin for a change of state and then receive - we managed this for the j1850 bus (effectively receiving data at 9600,baud) but timing was tight.. Use an Arduino mega. It has multiple tx/rx and this makes life much easier for debugging pr...

Catch incoming data without interrupt

Hello, This question has been asked many times I guess, but in a project I use the software UART (because the hardware UART is used by a USB/RS232 connection). This means that the Arduino can't use the interrupt for data appearing on the digital inputs that are used for the software UART. Enough sai...

Are you using the SendChar macro? This should send the 00. If you use SendString the 00 will be considered a string terminator and not transmitted.
Thanks Kersing, I found this to be true.
Would a variable terminator string wouldn't be an addition to this component?

Addition to circular buffer macro: search and return

Me and the circular buffer will never be a good match. I don't know why but this never seem to work when I try things with it. A great addition for me would be a "find and return" action that can be used in this macro. This would search in the buffer for a certain string, and return the X'th value b...

Re: Semiduplex asynchronism serial 10bit

If not got an analyser working, you can use Tera Term to view bytes instead of ASCII. It needs to run in debug mode: As you can see the 0x00 and 0x18 is not displayed as I believe the compiler is treating the 0x00 as a null terminator. Hey Medelec, this is true! If I send the data like I wanted to,...

Yes 4 in a row if always the same value. I was assuming the value would vary? If that was the case, store as ulong then send bytes within a loop. I can't take credit for this, but you could even send in a string like this "\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF" Thank you, I will try this string way of sending. I first ...

Hi MJU, What about using flowchart posted here to send ULong to UART rather than to EEPROM? Thank you Medelec, But in that example you want to write 1234567890 to the eeprom.
