I'm really not used to someone calling me sir


I don't like being called that since I was enlisted and take being called sir as an insult.
Many people just don't understand. Sir is the guys I took orders from but learned never to trust.

Call me crazy, but when people call me "sir" I become wary.
Please post technical questions on the forum, not by personal message. Thanks!

first of all, i want to thank all of u guys who replied in this post... kudos to all of u!  ;)

my problem is solved, although it seems that it doesn't involve the floating pin issue... i already fixed my problem by putting an inverter from my input device going to the arduino... LOL.

here's my code which makes our hexapod move in 4 directions:

Code: [Select]
#define forwardPin  12
#define backwardPin  11
#define rightPin  10
#define leftPin  9

int forwardState = 0;
int backwardState = 0;
int rightState = 0;
int leftState = 0;


void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(forwardPin, INPUT);
  pinMode(backwardPin, INPUT);
  pinMode(rightPin, INPUT);
  pinMode(leftPin, INPUT);
}

void loop()
{
  forwardState = digitalRead(forwardPin);
  backwardState = digitalRead(backwardPin);
  rightState = digitalRead(rightPin);
  leftState = digitalRead(leftPin);
  if (forwardState == HIGH && backwardState == LOW && leftState == LOW && rightState == LOW)

again, i want to thank all of u guys ^^
hopefully u will still help me if i encounter any problems.. Godbless  :smiley-red:

AWOL

I'm glad you fixed the problem, but that has no resemblance to the code in the first post on this thread.
