 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

This is what I would like to accomplish: 
Code:
myGLCD.print("Title: ",LEFT,5,0,0,0);
But I would like to insert a variable like this: 
Code:
myGLCD.print(name,LEFT,5,0,0,0);

Where name is a variable.

I am using henning's libraries.

Thank you,

Loren

Is name declared as a char array or a String?

 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm not 100% what name is and 'm still trying to get all of the code working.

I think I came up with something. 

I declared printChar as a public class in the RGB_GLCD.h and then did this:

Code:
int stl, i;
 
  stl = strlen(name);
  for (i=0; i<stl; i++)
    myGLCD.printChar(*name++, 8 + (i*6), 5, 0, 0, 0);

This probably isn't the most efficient and I'm a noob, so any nudges in the right direction are welome.

Thanks,

Loren

If you can post your complete code, I am sure we can figure it out smiley

Here it is (part of an ipod sketch):

#include "Bounce.h"
#include "RGB_GLCD.h"

GLCD myGLCD;

// This sketch needs to be adapted (change serial port config in setup())
// to be used on a non-Mega, so check the board here so people notice.

#endif*/

void loop()

  // service iPod serial. this is who will end up
  // calling our handler functions when responses
  // come back from the iPod
  advancedRemote.loop();
 


  // use the button as a toggle
  if (button.update() && (button.read() == LOW))
  {
    //Serial.print("button pressed");
    if (advancedRemote.isCurrentlyEnabled())
    {
      //advancedRemote.disable();
      advancedRemote.controlPlayback(AdvancedRemote::PLAYBACK_CONTROL_PLAY_PAUSE);
     
    }
    else
    {
      advancedRemote.enable();

      // start our commands - we'll do them in sequence
      // as our handlers get called. for example, this
      // one will call our Feedback handler when it's done
      advancedRemote.switchToItem(AdvancedRemote::ITEM_PLAYLIST, 0);
    }
  }
}

The OP contained a snippet from the "titleHandler" function

Work is crazy so I might not be able to respond as quickly as I'd like.

Thanks,

You have to remove const from your function header.

Code:
void titleHandler(const char *name)

This works for me:
Code:
#include <RGB_GLCD.h>

GLCD myGLCD;

void titleHandler(char *name)
{
  myGLCD.print("Title:", LEFT, 5);
  myGLCD.print(name, 40, 5);
}


void setup()
{
  myGLCD.initLCD();
  myGLCD.clrScr();
  myGLCD.setColor(255,255,255);
}

void loop()
{
  titleHandler("Testing");
 
  while (true) {};
}

Thanks for your response

I get this after I made the changes that were suggested:

Quote
secondAdv:183: error: invalid conversion from 'void (*)(char*)' to 'void (*)(const char*)'
secondAdv:183: error: initializing argument 1 of 'void AdvancedRemote::setTitleHandler(void (*)(const char*))'

What does the error mean?

I am not sure, but I think that the setTitleHandler does not accept titleHander without the const in the declaration.

As I dont have the hardware or the other libraries you are using I am unable to help any further.
