I don't think the port appears until you actually plug the device in.

Isn't that just the loading time of getting the whole of Java into memory (the first time), versus bits already being in memory ready to go the second time? That is it's just normal Windows behaviour.

The built-in button isn't a general use input switch, it's a reset button. It "reboots" the Arduino and makes it run the uploaded program from the beginning again.

You need to wire up an external switch for input as shown on the button example page: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Button

Do you have any idea where I can go read up on how to do it?

There's this thread talking about how to write an integer to two consecutive EEPROM locations: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1228184935/2#2

Code:
EEPROM.write((byte)myint, 0); // write low order byte
EEPROM.write((byte)(myint >> 8), 1); // write high order byte

To read it back you reverse the process, something like this (not checked):
Code:
int value = EEPROM.read(0) + EEPROM.read(1) * 256;

Hi Andrew,

Now I need to find out how to get rid of the window title bar when maximized to use all of the screen.

Excellent idea and ... done

I added an option to the jar, which run the IDE fullscreen without the titlebar.

Just tried this and it's a fantastic improvement. Thanks very much. Now I need to find out how to get rid of the window title bar when maximized to use all of the screen. I presume changing window managers might let me do it.

Hi,

I have made a few changes to the Arduino-IDE sources for version 0010 that allows for smaller windows suitable for the e3pc.
- The Splitpane that divides the editor-panel from message can now be resized,   so that both panels are fully visible (with scrollbars if necessary).
- I removed the statusbar that displays the current linenumber.  
- I switched the look-and-feel of the IDE from "GTK" to "Metal"  
- I switched to Java Swing Fileselection Dialogs because they are easier
  to navigate on a small screen.

It's now possible to work with the IDE in e3PC-EasyMode and still have the MenuBar
at the bottom of the screen.

The install instructions are here : http://www.wayoda.org/share/eeepc/README-EEEPC
The updated IDE-code is here (1.1MB) : http://www.wayoda.org/share/eeepc/pde.jar.eee

I really hope we can get some of these changes into the standard Arduino-Distribution so it needs to be only a temporary hack.

Eberhard

Great! Can't wait to get home and try this out!

Oh, but I don't need an EEE PC to work with Arduino while sitting on my sofa. A 'normal' laptop works fine, is my experience!
Depends how big your sofa is and if there's someone sitting next to you watching TV.

I don't use anything but the Eee PC with my Arduino - I think they make a perfect pair. Who'd have thought you could play with programmable microcontrollers while sitting on your sofa?

Yeah, it is a bit broken on the Asus isn't it? I was wondering if a separate window for the serial monitor area might help. Maybe a dockable window so you can have it all in one as at present or tear it off and alt-tab between them.

If every edit menu in the world didn't look like this then you might find someone to agree with you:

Well for me putting this in the search box seems to work:

That'll be the crappy forum search function timing out (I think). I always use Google - just stick "site:arduino.cc" in front of your search terms to narrow it down.

e.g. http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=site:arduino.cc+direct+port+manipulation

You've made a neat job of that, very nice. I wish my hardware skills matched my software.

Off the top of my head - define two different size constants, XSIZE and YSIZE. Then where my code is applying SIZE to "x" replace it with XSIZE and where it's applying size to "y" replace it with YSIZE.

Be sure to post pictures/videos of it working!
