or i can just use 'upload using programmer' in the file menu <.<
derp >.<

ok i'll give that a go thnx smiley

Is there a way to choose between isp and bootloader methods for uploading sketches to arduino boards yet other than editing a file buried away in a folder?

i need to be able to choose between uploading via serial to a board with a bootloader and ftdi, and another without using the icsp header and a usbtinyisp. but its a pain to have to go into the settings file and change bootloader to usbtinyisp (or watever), upload and change it back again.

would be nice and easy to do it inside the IDE as if changing port or board..

well this ones on hold til i can afford to get the screen module they used since it also needs to be programmed with special code -_-

unless someone can come up with a workaround using a second arduino with a cheaper spi screen module maybe?

and to make things worse they makers dont seem to be paying any attention to the site where they put this thing -_-

well i have no idea if it will do what i hope it will do but it compiles now at least..

I commented out the 'Hardwareserial UART = Hardwareserial()' line, and changed all appearences of UART to Serial as well as commented out the 'UART.begin' line since there was a serial begin one above it
6  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: computerless arduino? on: October 04, 2011, 09:58:54 am
thing is i wouldnt know what to replace it with.. since if i comment it out it complains wen a line mentions UART.

the line it stops dead at and hilites is:
That agrees with what the compiler was telling you. The HardwareSerial class has two constructors - one that takes 11 values, and one that takes an existing instance (the copy constructor). It does not have a no-argument constructor, so that code is (now) invalid.
ok so wat do i do to make it happy? smiley

You can find the code for HardwareSerial in the Arduino distribution.
I'm guessing this was written for an earlier version of Arduino.

i was thinking that, may have to try on an older version and see how i go, if not how will i make this comply with the latest?

the line it stops dead at and hilites is:
Code:
HardwareSerial Uart = HardwareSerial();

Hey, i found this on my travels: computerless Arduino
and they quote:
Quote
Here’s a fun hack we’ve been experimenting with — a computerless Arduino! It’s small, inexpensive, and doesn’t require a computer to change the code, so you can take it with you and make awesome things anywhere.

The Computerless Arduino consists of two major components; an Arduino-compatible microcontroller loaded with a realtime code interpreter, and a stand-alone 5 button LCD display to display port values and manipulate code. The display can be connected to the Arduino via a 4-pin port at any time to peek at In/Out values, view the current code, and make changes as desired.

By keeping the display separate, it’s possible to have many dedicated Arduino modules (we’re using one of the smallest, cheapest, and most-capable Arduino clones, the Teensy2.0 for $18), without needing to spend much on each additional device. For the display we’re using the super small uLCD-144 (by 4D Systems for $29), and the system could easily be modified to use a larger display or computer if desired.

The programming instruction set for the Computerless Arduino is quite small, making it easy for novices to get started while still working with real code. Navigating the user interface is a bit tedious on such a tiny display, but it’s easy to learn and provides everything you need — a basic multichannel signal scope, a code page for the setup() function which runs once at startup, and 8 pages of code for the loop() function which provides the main functionality and runs over-and-over forever.

The code for the Computerless Arduino is still quite experimental, but it’s all here. As always, Labs work is open source and creative commons, so if you’re curious to play with it yourself or build derivative work, have at it!

    Arduino code with realtime interpreter for the Teensy2.0
    Display code written in 4DGL for the uLCD-144(GFX)
    Protocol for communication between the Arduino and the display

We’re still noodling on where to take it next, but there definitely seems to be something interesting about non-conventional approaches to embedded development.

now i may not have the same gear, but wat i do have should be enough, a spi display of the same dimentions (works with the adafruit demo code for such displays), and an Arduino Nano. should this not be enough?

but upon trying to compile the code in the IDE i get this:

Code:
ComputerlessArduino_12:33: error: no matching function for call to 'HardwareSerial::HardwareSerial()'
K:\arduino\arduino-0022\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino/HardwareSerial.h:50: note: candidates are: HardwareSerial::HardwareSerial(ring_buffer*, volatile uint8_t*, volatile uint8_t*, volatile uint8_t*, volatile uint8_t*, volatile uint8_t*, uint8_t, uint8_t, uint8_t, uint8_t, uint8_t)
K:\arduino\arduino-0022\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino/HardwareSerial.h:32: note:                 HardwareSerial::HardwareSerial(const HardwareSerial&)

im not sure wat to do in order to make that one thing ok, let alone any other error that may be pooed out.
its bad enough they dont tell u how to build it but when the code wont compile because of that then how else u supposed to work it out?

if anyone else knows of this project and can shed light on it then i'd be happy.
10  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: zt018(S or 5 i cant tell) pin decifering on: September 27, 2011, 05:01:25 pm
well to answer my own question the pins are as follows:

Code:
1 - 3v3
 2 - 5v
 3 - RS (D/C)
 4 - DI (MOSI)
 5 - CS
 6 - SCLK (SCK)
 7 - RST
 8 - NC
 9 - BL
10 - GND

hope this helps anyone else having similar problems with screens like this smiley

hi i got this 128x160 tft spi lcd off of ebuy linky to ebay product page

and im following the adafruit tutorial for wiring it up to test it, only one slight drawback tho..
the pin names.

the pins on it are listed as follows:

Code:
1 - 3v3
 2 - 5v
 3 - RS
 4 - DI
 5 - CS
 6 - SCLK
 7 - RST
 8 - NC
 9 - BL
10 - GND

Some are easily understood, like the power, reset, gnd.... but where the tutorial starts referring to D/C, and MOSI, im a little lost as to what pins they translate to on the board i have..

why they dont have the same naming, i dont know -_-

question being, what pins are what?

well i have identified the usb, grounds, antenna, and wat i beleve to be the uart rx/tx pins,
still working on it wen i got time, but hopefully if im successful and others find these units i hope to have documented the pinouts or at least a starting point to at least get them going.

flip side:
14  Using Arduino / General Electronics / Re: need help to identify Bluetooth Module on: July 20, 2011, 06:50:38 am
well i got that much X3

what i am really after is a possible pinout for it, its gonna be hard to try and work that out from the pcb it was on, will post images of it later..
15  Using Arduino / General Electronics / need help to identify Bluetooth Module on: July 17, 2011, 12:20:01 pm
hi, i hope i can get help here, i pulled this module from a bluetooth car hands free device (Supertooth one), and it has solderpoints all round it, see pic:

its labeled as btmm3c2xxv13 butt hat yealds nothing on google..

only pin i have identified so far has been the antenna (as marked)
