Re: Bad mistake in FC8!

Hi
This may be unrelated - have you just installed the latest build 1903 ? of windows 10
at work this has also broken Autodesk Inventor 2018 & Autocad 2018. We have rolled back to the previous build

So might not be a bug in FC8 - MS could have caused this

Re: 3 Digit 7 Segiment quad Display 0-55v Voltimeter

Hi

Not got V8, but in V7 you can read the ADC using

"read as string" have you tried this ? then you can define the length of the string to 4
