This page might help: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/Enum  scroll down to the "FAQ"

You have the wrong case in there.

enum userType         'u' is lowercase

void UserFunc(UserType a)     'U' is uppercase

Good luck!

Edit: color me embarrassed!  I just tried my fix, and changing the case doesn't fix it smiley-sad

That makes sense.  Thanks.

I have noticed that some people assume that a cr/lf will be sent at the end of every message sent from serial monitor.
I was trying to interface the Arduino with another software package, which does send a CR (but not a LF) at the end of every message.  But it's easier to debug my Arduino code if I can use println messages at certain spots, so I was hoping to use the Serial Monitor to send/receive.  The ability to send a CR would be helpful indeed.  But I've learned to manage without  8-)

You could use some other terminating character, and have the Arduino recognize that character or the CR as the carriage return.
I saw that mentioned when I was searching for a way to send a CR.  I didn't see how to do it however.

You could also write your own version of the Serial Monitor window. I did that in C# in less than an hour. Mine can send, or not, the CR/LF combo.
You make it sound so easy  smiley

Right now, you can't,

Thanks.  It's nice to know I wasn't missing something.

How can I use the Serial Monitor to send a <return> (CHR$(13))?

Post the code and we'll take a look-see.
9  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Troubleshooting / Re: Problem with Arduino Duemilanove... on: July 22, 2009, 08:32:34 pm
Alas, that particular error has a bazillion things that can cause it.  When I first started a few months ago, it was usually caused by choosing the wrong board - there's both a Duemilanove 128 & a Duemilanove 328 and picking the wrong one causes that error.  But you said you read the other messages, and had the right board picked, so I figured repeating it would be useless.  Plus, it doesn't seem to happen anymore since IDE-16 came out.  Yea!

Try hitting the reset button on the arduino at random times, both before and after clicking the upload button (ie, try uploading several times, hitting the reset only once each time).

I assume you've seen this page: http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#toc1
FWIW - I use Zone Alarm, and it works fine for me.

Any chance you can borrow an Arduino from someone else and see if you can upload to that one?

Good luck!

Sorry, if you're looking for an install program to do it for you, you're out of luck.

To add to the start menu:

1) Right click on arduino.exe and drag it to the desktop.  When you release the button, choose "Create shortcut".
2) Right click on the start button and choose "Open"
3) Double click on the "Programs" folder.
4) Drag and drop the short-cut from the desktop into the Programs folder.
5) Close the folder.

Voila!  Arduino is now in your start menu.

-------

To associate arduino with .pde
1) Find any .pde file
2) Right-click and select "Open With"
3) Click on "Browse" and find arduino.exe
4) Make sure the box is checked for "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file"
5) Click "ok"

Yikes - this should work, but doesn't seem to on my computer.  It keeps wanting to open "Processing".

There should be a program named "arduino.exe".  Double-click on it.  This is the program that opens the .pde files.

Click File->Sketchbook->Examples->Digital->Blink
This should open Blink.pde

Let us know what happens when you try this, and then we can talk you thru getting it on the start menu.

Good luck!

That Inversed Rite made for good reading.  If the Discworld books are like that, I'll have to check them out.
13  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Troubleshooting / The publisher could not be verified on: June 04, 2009, 08:01:10 pm
I installed the Arduino software on a WinXP machine.  When I start it up, I get "The publisher could not be verified.  Are you sure you want to run this software?".  I just click <RUN> and go on with life.  Ditto with the Processing software.

It doesn't seem to hurt anything, but it's a nuisance.  How do I make it go away?


Edit: I found the answer.  Right-click on the program and choose Properties.  Click on <Unblock>.  Simple as that.

(after fixing the include from WString.h to String.h)

If you switch it back, it compiles no problem.

Even though the library is called "String", the actually file names are called "WString".  

Good luck!

The link provided takes you to Avandalen's profile - since you're not him, you're not allowed to edit it.

That's why I prefer to tell people to click on "messages".  Takes them to their own profile.
