Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

OK, seems we have a couple of issues... since the latest release, when compiling the sketch , it no longer lets "go" of the serial port and allows the upload. I now have to click on connection manager ,disconnect the panel, upload the sketch and reconnect the panel when done. Problem with this is, w...

Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

Morning Phil.. After burning the midnight oil last night, I dont think the Message library is the answer. its more of a way to set custom messages. I re-studied the Number up/down section and discovered that "Value" can be swapped out with the function 'DoubleValue". I tried that this morning, and h...

Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

Thanks Phil, why did i have gut feeling you was gonna say that LOL.. Yes number up/down boxes is what i ment.. Strange that we can read them but not do anything with the result. I mean really, if you set a box with the number 5 in it, is it not a good idea that the arudino is made to do something or...

Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

Update for you phil, I have set two small radio buttons on screen , they toggle between show Serial monitor or hide Serial monitor. works well if not a bit slow cause Arduino is working hard. Also I set it to foreground layer, this allows me other controls on screen that i can use by setting them to...

Re: Interface object positioning

The relay buttons were the easiest to do, they are just a pair of radio buttons, One sends a !RON 5\R the other a !ROFF 5\r command to turn pin x on or off on the arduino. The all on all off buttons just run a loop to set the 20 pins either high or low depending on the request. When I have cleaned t...

Re: Interface object positioning

Ok here we go with a few more hints If you have several items in a row but you cant get the mouse to move them just a fraction, go to the properties menu, scroll down and find the position properties, or size property. It will be a two part number separated by a comma. EG 40,20 for a 40x20 pixel box...

Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

Great news, I am sorry I ask so many questions but I am still learning all the little nuances of the software.

MLP is both easy to set up quickly, but very comprehensive when you need to "Fine Tune" it.

Any hints on how to get a second or third instance of Pstring running?

Mike.

Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

Question Phil, Is it possible to change the serial monitor properties on the run? I like the serial monitor, But it be nice if I could make a control to toggle visable, invisable property. EG lay a serial monitor over the center of the gui and just pop it open when needed to check some instructions ...

Re: 18650 Conditioner unit.

Okay great news Phil , pString works a treat and is very small code wise. Works fantastic for changing the colours on the pic boxes. is there a "but" coming? Yes there is, you can only use one pString at a time. This tiny function controls 20 individual picture boxes. -------------------------------...
