Re: New Hidden LCD Component

Hi Kersing You may have a different version of Flowcode to me. I am using FC 7.0.0.4 from the LCD Display List shown here: LCD Generic Display List FC7.jpg There are Four LCD Displays listed. If each one is played upon the 3D Panel, none are of the type I have described. You have to mouse over the l...

New Hidden LCD Component

Hi Everyone Check this out. I have been experimenting with FC7 using programs produced by FC5. The generic LCD used by FC5 when imported by FC7 is very different, look: New LCD Component.jpg This new component gives you the option to control the W/R input of the display. Look: LCD RW Options added.j...

Re: FC7 Professional - Compiler XC8

Hi Steve Just tried to install Microchip XC8 compiler Ver 1.38 Once downloaded it is possible to point FC7 to the directory where it has been installed. You are then given the option to save as an additional Compiler above the default version shipped by default. I have tried this Ver 1.38 compiler a...

Re: FC7 Professional - Compiler XC8

Hi Steve I have completed testing FC7 using the PID controller routine. It would not work at first even after making changes to the CALL macro's. The problem was identified as follows: - configuration bit - Extended Instruction Set . This feature is disabled by the free version of Microchip XC8 comp...

Re: save the project

Hi Slava

I too have the problem you describe
Flowcode 7 Missing icons.jpg
Missing Icons
(148.92 KiB) Downloaded 3089 times
FC7 Build 7.0.0.4

Windows 10 Pro - Ver: 1511

Think the problem is FC7 not our computers. We only use what you made available.

Re: FC7 Professional - Compiler XC8

Hi Steve OK, got the Macro calls all sorted and everything appears to be working, just need to recall the Prototype to test the altered code produced by FC7. FC5 HEX file was 52KB FC7 HEX file 46KB - smaller Does this mean that the Sourceboost compiler is no better or worse than Microchip XC compile...

Re: FC7 Professional - Compiler XC8

Hi Steve Thank you for your quick reply. I am now very interested to see how this PID program performs when I get it working using the Microchip XC compiler. If its bloated too much it simply will not work as required. Apologise in advance if these up-loads seem confusing. The PID program is time cr...

FC7 Professional - Compiler XC8

Hi Everyone Just upgraded to Ver 7.0.0.4. I have purchased the Professional version. However, I am unsure if we are still in Beta or final release as am getting the message from the compiler that it is the 'Free version'. Therefore not sure if it is worth starting to use this or stick with FC5 until...

Re: programming for HD44780 16x2 OLED?

Sorry to here you are having so much trouble with this LCD display, but just to reasure you, don't give up but read on. The controller is a Hitachi HD44780 LCD controller - no matter who puts their controller onto their parts its still a Hitachi HD44780 LCD controller so will always work the same wa...

Re: programming for HD44780 16x2 OLED?

The LCD's I have been using are almost technically identical to the ones you are using - same controller etc. just by a different trade mark. I have checked to see if they look the same and I cannot see any difference between them. I have downloaded the data sheet for the adafruit LCD to see if the ...

Re: programming for HD44780 16x2 OLED?

Hi. I've been using these LCD's for some time now for my projects and they work great without any MOd's within Flowcode V5. Just remember to do the following: Connect the D0; D1; D2; D3 pins on the LCD to GND BIT 0 from the PIC (from which ever port) goes to D4 on the LCD BIT1 to D5 on the LCD BIT2 ...
