Is your display set to use scaling to increase readability? To 200% perhaps?

Re: help with the program

What kind of delay? What do you want to achieve?

Posting a screenshot doesn’t allow us to provide a lot of help, please attach your Flowchart.

Re: signed/unsigned int 64 inside FC8

You will need to take a close look at the data sheet for the compiler for your particular device to see if it is implemented. Last time I looked the 8 bit PIC devices didn't support 64 bit. However it seems some (all) now do if you use a fairly recent XC8 compiler. My (slightly older) FC8 install us...

Re: Help with timer

You could try to calculate a more frequency interrupt (like 5 a second) and use a counter in the interrupt handler to only execute the code you need to run at 1 hz when the counter reaches 5.

Re: .Return Variable

You only return a valid value if Test is set to 1. In other cases .Return is not set to a value in your Macro due to the decision at the end of the macro. For all other values of Test you are calling another macro from your macro. If you always want to set the return value you need to move the assig...

Re: .Return Variable

Something to take into account, you should always set the .Return to a value. In your macro you are only setting a value is Test equals 1, not if it is set to any other value. Nothing obvious looks wrong with the code, however during simulation I notice in "Zeit_Datum_Anzeigen_2" you loop ...

For icd and ghost you will need hardware that supports it. That can be a multi programmer with support or the separate Flowkit V2 board.

Re: External EEPROM 24256

Check the data sheet for both devices to see if the commands used are the same and take the same arguments. For memory the larger devices requires additional address information in an additional byte in the command sequence.

Re: Easter Special

For Atmel controllers FC6 didn’t use BoostC as that is for 8 bit pic controllers only. FC8 does not use xc8 either.

Given the lack of information regarding the flowchart used I don’t think anyone can provide any useful feedback.

Re: Use return from macro

The macro call will be the value. So

Code: Select all

if Macro_1() then


In a decision you just enter 'Macro_1()' for the 'if:'.
If your macro requires arguments (say 2) you enter 'Macro_1(1,"second")' or 'Macro_1(.var1, .var2)' if you want to pass the values of local var1 and var2.

Re: Store & Retrieve ULong using EEPROM.fcfx

To modify strings you can use the string manipulations available. One of them being concatenation.

The result would be something like:

Code: Select all

newString = "000" + smallString

Where smallString would be the one you previously created from the number stored in eeprom.
