Installation Questions / Re: Close comport after uploading
« on: August 20, 2013, 08:26:14 AM »

Does the Serial Monitor show up?
If you use Serial.begin() in your sketch Wiring will try to open the Serial Monitor.
If you want the COM port to be closed you should try to exit from that window as it should close the COM port.

I'm on Windows 8 x64 as well, and FT232RL based boards have worked fro me.
Maybe you could copy and paste the error messages you get?

Hi there!

What board and which settings do you use (bottom right of IDE)?

Hernando is going to be a panel member for this years' summit.,256.0.html

The topic is "Implications of Open Source Business: Forking and Attribution" so it should be really interesting!
Contributed Library Questions / Re: Msj error in menu backend.h

Hi! I'm so sorry about that!
I forgot to push the changes to MenuBackend before the Wiring 1.0 release.

Please download and unzip the attached version in your libraries folder.

Replace library that shipped by replacing the existing MenuBackend from this location:

Programming Questions / Re: Is it possible to save HashMap to EEPROM?

Hi there, could you post your code?

You're going to need to write your own saveHashMap and loadHashMap functions, but I can help you with that.
Post the code here and use the [ # ] symbol so it prints the code formatted:

Core/Cross-platform Library Questions / Re: SPI.setBitorder

Hi Qynx!

I'm not able to reproduce this error. What version of Wiring are you using, and with what hardware?

You are right about the documentation being wrong. We'll fix that. Thanks!

PS: I was targeting Wiring S with Wiring 0100. The SPI library is a part of the AVR8Bit core.

Core/Cross-platform Library Questions / Re: Button library

Hey again,

I have looked briefly at the code for this feature, and I think I have found and fixed the bug. (I do not have my Wiring nearby)

Could you replace your Button.h and Button.cpp with

Would you agree if I say that you probably get errors after about one minute of testing?
This patch will fix that.

Hey, and thank you for your encouragement!

I must say that your code looks good, and that I suspect you might have stumbled upon a bug  :-[.

Could you try this:
Code: [Select]
  int now = millis();
    Serial.print("> up held for ");
    Serial.print(" | ");

      Serial.println("> -up held");
      Serial.print("> -up held for at least 2000");

I see that my time variables are ints which will only work for the 60 first seconds or so if I wrote my logic in a greedy way. This sample code will reveal that to me.
If this turns out to be a bug I'll fix it right away, and commit a patch to the github source.

EDIT: When I read it again, it might actually help just to change your now to be of type unsigned long like this:
Code: [Select]
unsigned long now = millis();

There seems to have been a feature enabled where we were expected to approve every new member. This is now disabled, let's hope the captcha is enough to stop potential spammers.

I am a member of the Wiring team, and I am the Lead Library Developer.
Lastly; I play with my band IMMETIC - feel free to take a listen to three songs from our upcoming debut on
When I'm not programming or playing in my band, I'm with my lovely fiance.

I agree that we still have some work to do with selecting fonts and contrasts. Although, personally I love the distinct Wiring orange color!
