Cannot compile if channel 1 comms is selected

Hi,

I have PIC32mx270f256b and are unable to compile a program if a UART is connected to channel 1, channel 2 appears to work ok.
The following message is received.

Thanks

Re: Unable to copy component properties

Hi Ben,

Thanks for your reply and providing solutions to the questions I have asked. I will see how they go. I look forward to the next release release of FC7 with the updates for the component creation. They will come in very handy. Keep up the good work . :D

Re: Homw made PCB

Hi,

Here is one of my posts that gives a brief description of making a PCB using press n peel. I have had fairly good results with it but you do need some patience too. I hope this is of some help. viewtopic.php?f=26&t=12650

Unable to copy component properties

Hi, I am trying to make a component and am using the cal uart as part of the component. When using a 32 bit chip, remapped pins are used. I am able to read the channel list of the cal uart and use that in my component to populate the channel list there. However when i use the same process i am unabl...

Re: Accessing data from within a circular buffer

Hi Benj,

If you could find a way of doing that, that would be great. It would help simplify code. In the mean time the other way works too :D

Re: Accessing data from within a circular buffer

Hi benj, Giving direct control to the read pointer means you have to first know where you are in the buffer so you can then skip the required number of bytes which could get a bit messy. To use this function i would use the buffer so it was configured to "store x values first", so once the buffer wa...

Accessing data from within a circular buffer

Hi, A feature that i think would be handy would be to set a pointer in the buffer to access data from a given point. Instead of having to do a whole lot of successive reads to get to the data you need, setting the pointer you could access it directly. If you think this is a worthy additional feature...

Deleting the contents of a byte array

Hi,

I was wondering, is there an easy way to delete the entire contents of a byte array or do you have to delete each byte 1 at a time?

Comments overlap each other

Hi,

No real issue, more of an appearance thing. In a flow chart where comments are present, the comments sometimes overlap each other.

Unable to access local variables in the simulation debugger

Hi,

During simulation i am finding that if you have jumped to a macro, in the simulation debugger window, if you want to add global variables to watch you are able to but are unable to access the local variables from the variable manager to add those as well.

Re: GLCD EB076V2 wont work correctly

I have had a look at the above errors. When a variable is created that is an array and its initial value is set to being empty by placing "" in the initial value field, under FC6 this seemed to be fine. With FC7 the above errors are generated. By leaving the initial value field blank for array type ...

Hi, I have tried using the EB076V2 display component. If you display an image from the SD card with the offset generated by graphics composer and the offset is zero the image will display ok.

Eeprom fails to work correctly

Hi,

I am using a PIC18F26K80 and the the eeprom fails to work correctly, it works fine in simulation. The program adds some initial values to the eeprom and then tries to read them back and display them. However only zeros are displayed. I have tried this with a PIC16F88 and it works ok.

Re: DsPIC stops running if GLCD is included in the program

Hi Ben, I have attached some code for a component to drive the 4D display running the R44 firmware revision (EB076_V2). This allows the display to initialise and also allows images to be displayed off the SD card. I hope this helps with sorting out the Flowcode component. The only problem that this ...

As an extra point of interest, the display file R44.Pmmc (used by EB076V2 component) is the latest revision of firmware for these displays. The older version R22.Pmmc(used by EB076V1 component) is for the old serial graphics controller platform that has been superseded by 4D Systems newer serial pro...
