The Burglar Alarm System

Postby Mikl » Mon Feb 07, 2011 8:38 am

Hi, i am a student trying to figure out using flowcode. i was given a guide on 160 pages on how to use flowcode.

I have hit a problem. my guide says i can mimic a burglar system in flowcode, it is some sort of burglar icon i have find. the problem is, i can't find it. i have been searching the web to find the answer, but can find a solution.. i have seen in a manual that flowcode got a lot of virtual system installed, where do i find those? i am using flowcode v4.2 Pro, or my schol is using that.

Sincerely
Mikkel

I believe the Flowchart your after is here:
viewtopic.php?f=26&t=6537
However I can't get it to load on my PC so I'm not 100% sure. It could of got corrupted during forum software upgrade.
Perhaps Sean could kindly re-post the flowchart please.

Flowcode versions 2 and 3 had 2 components that were "virtual systems" - a buggy travelling around a maze and a burglar system. These have been removed in V4 of Flowcode.

Did get the wrong end of the stick?
From memory, I though the alarm flowchart that Sean posted had an image of a house, windows etc and you click on the windows doors etc to activate alarm. If I have got it all wrong and that's not what your after or what I have just described is not in the flowchart, then sorry about that.
I don't always get things right every time.

I don't know - I don't know which guide Mikl is referring to.

Thanks for the help, now i can stop searching for it. this eases my mind a bit, and thanks for the flowchart. the guide i am using right now is called PIC programing - Flowcourse by John Verrill. don't know where my teacher got it from, but its good to learn the basics in flowcode

I believe this is the link to online Flowcourse which probably in addition to the book:
http://www.matrixmultimedia.com/Flowcourse/
Not sure how to get hold of the book though.
