Hi again everyone!!
Thanks to your help, I have solved several problems already, but there are plenty more down the road. Just beginning, so thank you in advance for your assistance!
I am working on a Prototype Shield, identical to the one shown in the link below (with the small white breadboard already adhered to it). The shield has a reset button, but it also has a spare momentary button wired in for use in projects. The only problem is, I'm not entirely sure how to make use of this button. I was hoping someone with some past experience can help.http://www.droboticsonline.com/index.php/arduino-prototyping-shield.html
By looking at the underside of the shield, it is clear all four of the switch pins are already soldered to the corresponding through-holes on the board, but it honestly does NOT look like any of the switch pins have traces to any of the header pins (with the exception of MAYBE a ground)... or to any of the open holes of the breadboard. It seems that it is just a standalone switch with no existing connections to any of the available through-holes or headers. Am I missing something??? Is this thing wired to a header pin or a through-hole? If so, which one?? With a board such as this, I am certain that the manufacturers did not intend for the user to have to unsolder the switch in order to make use of the thing.
Thanks for the assistance!!!
