Re: History of Flowcode

Hi I've had Flowcode since v3 but didn't really start using it until v5 came along. I used v3 and v4 mainly to play with and learn a bit about microcontrollers, coupling it with the development board of the time. Those "BT" style plugs made interfacing so easy....... NOT.....:) I've attached the dat...

Re: DC Motors

Hi Have you looked at the component example yet? https://www.flowcode.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Component:_DC_Motor_() How are you connecting your motor? The example is for a Full-Bridge config. If you can share your flowchart and how you are connecting (even if just simulation) I'm sure the forum ...

Re: Looking for users with experience using RC5 remote control component

Hi I always feel that I've barely scratched the full potential of FC when I find features like this - I guess I go straight to hardware (or breadboard) too early... Until recently I predominantly used the PIC multiprogrammers, and with some home made SIL breakout boards plugged in giving me full acc...

Re: PIC10F322 IOC

Hi

Appears to be a bug as I can't select pins either.

Re: Serial Simulation

Hi Martin If I'm not mistaken I think they're referring to FC not being able to simulate a Receive Interrupt. Having used this interrupt many times to populate the CB I'm quite familiar with it and know it works (at least in my applications). In simulation, if an Injector could directly populate the...

Re: Serial Communications

Hi Attached is a very simple v8 example, which should work in v9 (only have v8 on this machine). v9 provides you with many more options re USART and CB. I haven't tested this on hardware but I'm pretty sure it should work. It has a USART, Circular Buffer and a LED. Using the Rx Interrupt to populate...

Re: Serial Communications

Hi Delayed boarding (bored time). I might have some stuff on this machine (using PIC's, but the principles are the same) and will check later. If so, the examples would be using v7 but they easily translate to v9. In one application I used LoRa to create a "mesh" network utilising just a single comm...

Re: Serial Communications

Hi The CB is certainly the "goto" component for my needs and as Martin suggests the wiki examples are a great place to start. Briefly, enable an interrupt on RX that points to your ISR (Interrupt Service Routine). In your ISR keep things brief. You can grab a Character etc from the UART and then sto...

Re: ESP32 Clock Component

Hi Just starting to explore the ESP and so far so good. Minor issue in getting the toolchain to work but all good and flash test worked perfectly. Downloading Ben's ESP_Config_WiFi to allow me to set a specific SSID and Password worked a treat too. Following on from that I thought it would be a good...

Re: RTC component in 2d panel

Hi

You can easily rescale it from within the Dashboard. Simply select it, click the rescale icon on toolbar (5th from left) then drag component to desired size.

Hope this helps
