Re: Error Sending: The semaphore timeout period has expired

Thanks Phil. The error seems to have gone away for now. There is no bluetooth in the system but I do have a very overextended USB chain. Arduino Mega, two Teensys, a USB to serial adaptor and a Vellemann VM110 interface board to a 7-port hub. 7-port hub to a 4-port hub. 4-port hub to a Pegasus Astro...

My Interface Panel has stopped working and I get the above message when I try to send anything. Any ideas what has gone wrong?

Lost my Interface Panel

Hi, This is rather alarming. I have been using my MegUno application on various different computers, including one with two monitors. As I am trying to get as much info on screen as possible, I sometimes spread parts of the display over two monitors. However, when I started my app this morning, the ...

Re: Just Weird!

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the explanation.

Yes - I definitely want to use both cases - i.e. dss is a different command to dsS or dSs.
I have written all my software assuming this is so, so an update would be very welcome.

Regards, Hugh

Just Weird!

I have open two Monitor visualisers. I am trying to send a command string ~dgs# I can enter this in the textbox on the bottom of the visualiser but as soon as I hit Send, it changes to ~dgS# - i.e. the case of the s chis changed from lower to upper case. If I add an extra lower case 's', sending ~dg...

Re: How to send value to Arduino from TrackBarWithIndicator (slider)?

Hi Phil, I have sent you my MegUno code and the Arduino Mega code that it works with via support@megunolink.com as suggested. I have never tried using Command Handler. My coding skills - or more accurately lack of - are firmly rooted in the glory days of Algol 60 and Dartmouth Basic. So, my serial i...

Re: How to send value to Arduino from TrackBarWithIndicator (slider)?

Hi Phil, Thanks for the explanation. To clarify from my side, I have attached the MegUnoLink application I am using. Basically this is a controller for an astronomical observatory where I am controlling the dome rotation azimuth and opening / closing the shutter. Both are moved using stepper motors ...

Re: How to send value to Arduino from TrackBarWithIndicator (slider)?

Hi Phil, Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I still don't understand. What I am hoping for is to use similar code to the way in which I set a controls properties like the example below. InterfacePanel shutterData("myConsole"); //Create an InterfacePanel variable and pass the channel name shutterDat...

Re: How to send value to Arduino from TrackBarWithIndicator (slider)?

Hi, Sorry if I am hijacking the thread, but I am also interested in this. Please can you show some example code to return the string from a text box? I have been all through the documentation and whilst there are lots of examples of setting values in controls, I can't find any examples of reading th...
