 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,
I am in the process of making my own shield and want to put a reset switch on it (as per most shields) to save me fumbling around for the MCU reset switch.
Could someone please give me a steer as to what I need to do? i.e what I need to hook up to?
Thanks as always,

Sure, you just need to wire the 'new' reset switch between the shield reset pin and ground pin. All the support circuitry for the reset is already on the arduino board, so adding a reset switch either on a shield or externally is easy.

Hi,

That simple eh?
Could have made it more difficult and esoteric, now I feel a dork for asking.

Many thanks and kind regards,

I don't bother most of the time - just connect up one up externally while developing, unplug when done testing.

LoL... sanity at last........

Only yesterday I was contemplating my gear. It has four reset buttons, two of which were installed by me, and I can still press the one at the bottom. It has taken quite a while for me to wonder - Jeez, why  am I doing all this......?
