led sequences / macros?

Hi all, I am in the process of building a program that will operate Christmas lights. I will be using all 8 outputs on port B and was wondering if there is an easier and more compact (code wise) way to write the sequences. At the moment I am just using simple output / delay /output / delay routines ...

Re: ADC help!

I downloaded the first file and V4 says its an unexpected format? are V3 files not compatable with V4?
Seems a bit odd?

ADC help!

Hi folks

Could anyone give me any pointers on how to use the ADC in Flowcode V4?

Ive got 2 LED's flashing flip flop style but would now like to use the ADC facility to control the flash rate.

I aint got a clue where to start! :roll:

cheers

Re: sleep switch

Are the 12F chips usually hardwork then Ben?
The only problem I had was spurious oscillator speeds which seemed to be cured by decoupling the unused outputs with caps.
Pulling the unused outputs to ground or positive just stopped the thing working altogether :roll:

Latching switches?

Morning all, As I'm still at the "getting to know flowcade" stage I thought I'd try and expand some of the tutorials in order to understand more of the commands. So, I'm trying to modify the "input from switches" tutorial so that the push to make switches will latch the LED's in the on state until a...

Re: Let Us Know What You Are Doing With Flowcode

Switching the Christmas lighting displays in Leeds and surrounding areas. We will be replacing the software in our PIC control boards with flowcode generated hex files as its a lot easier than assembly! We are already planning the new designs for next year so things will be a lot more "flashy" in 20...

updated help files

Hi all

I have had flowcode for a week now and I am finding it fairly easy to learn for now but have noticed that some help files are not available. One that springs to mind is RFID help file.
Are there any patches available for download to update the software, help files and components?

Cheers

Re: no usb connection and speed change errors

Hi Ben

Cheers for the advice. Ive sorted it by uninstalling PPP and then reinstalling it.
Installing flowcode 3 after PPP maybe overwrites a shared dll or similar and cause this error but all is working fine now with both applications open.

Cheers again

Re: no usb connection and speed change errors

Hi Ben I fiddled with the clock speeds and managed to get that sorted using 16f627A chip :lol: I compiled to hex then used PPP to burn it to the chip. I am still unable to compile to the chip though and still get the "no usb connection" error. Can flowcode be used stand alone to compile to the chip ...

The program will not compile to chip (i get a no usb connection...
