Just started working with Arduino, I need to count inputs. But I want to look at one number/register not 1,2,3,4,5,...etc . I tried making some changes to the ButtonState sketch,with no luck.  Can someone point me in the right direction?

Your help will be most appreciated

Thanks AWOL for your response... I'll try again  When I view the Serial Monitor I see 1,2,3,4,5,6.... In the past I would use several  7 segment display and count Up. Maybe I'm over looking something simple here. I just wane to to view one number changing states not a page of numbers.

Thanks again



The serial monitor basically sucks.  You send serial digits, and it displays them.

If you want anything better then you will need to use a different program to display the serial data - one that handles (for example) VT100 escape codes.  You can then send those escape codes to move the cursor around the screen and replace an existing number with a new one.

Alternatively, maybe you should look in to attaching a 7 segment display, or LCD display instead.


Thanks for your help... I'll try using the LCD
