hi i am very new to this ( but having great fun  :D  ) i am trying to blend to bit of code together to get a counter with 7 segment led display
this is were i have got to ...
I would like to know how to get the counter to display on the led up to 9 and then start again.
i can get the two bit to work but not together
i have use google but i am missing something

here is the code

Code: [Select]

int A = 7;   //Defines all pins on the Arduino Uno board in order of connection.
int B = 6;
int C = 4;  // DOT is pin 5, not used in this example.
int D = 3;
int E = 2;
int F = 8;
int G = 9;
byte num0 = 0x3F;  //Hexadecimal format based upon the A-G, 0-9 Chart in excel and the wiring      // of the segment (refer to the on/off table image below).
byte num1 = 0x6;
byte num2 = 0x5B;
byte num3 = 0x4F;
byte num4 = 0x66;
byte num5 = 0x6D;
byte num6 = 0x7C;
byte num7 = 0x7;
byte num8 = 0x7F;
byte num9 = 0x6F;
// this constant won't change:
const int  buttonPin = 12;    // the pin that the pushbutton is attached to
const int ledPin = 13;       // the pin that the LED is attached to

// Variables will change:
int buttonPushCounter = 0;   // counter for the number of button presses
int buttonState = 0;         // current state of the button
int lastButtonState = 0;     // previous state of the button
void on(byte num)   // This function turns on the correct pins to display numbers passed to it         // through the variable "num".
 int result = bitRead(num, 0);  // Read the first binary entry in num and stores it in result.
     if (result == 1)  // Check to see if this segment should be on.
   {digitalWrite(A, HIGH);}   // Turns on the segment.
   else   // Otherwise, it turns it off.
   {digitalWrite(A, LOW);}  // Turns segment off.
     result = bitRead( num, 1);  // Same thing for the 6 remaining segments.
     if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(B, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(B, LOW);}    
   result = bitRead( num, 2);
     if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(C, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(C, LOW);}    
  result = bitRead( num, 3);
     if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(D, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(D, LOW);}    
  result = bitRead( num, 4);
     if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(E, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(E, LOW);}
  result = bitRead( num, 5);  
     if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(F, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(F, LOW);}    
  result = bitRead( num, 6);
     if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(G, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(G, LOW);}
void setup() {       // Our setup routine        
 pinMode(A, OUTPUT); // Making all pins outputs
 pinMode(B, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(C, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(D, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(E, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(F, OUTPUT);
 pinMode(G, OUTPUT);

 // initialize the button pin as a input:
 pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);


void loop() {
 // read the pushbutton input pin:
 buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);

 // compare the buttonState to its previous state
 if (buttonState != lastButtonState) {
   // if the state has changed, increment the counter
   if (buttonState == HIGH) {
     // if the current state is HIGH then the button
     // wend from off to on:
     on(num0 (buttonPushCounter));
   else {
     // if the current state is LOW then the button
     // wend from on to off:
 // save the current state as the last state,
 //for next time through the loop
 lastButtonState = buttonState;

 // turns on the LED every four button pushes by
 // checking the modulo of the button push counter.
 // the modulo function gives you the remainder of
 // the division of two numbers:
 if (buttonPushCounter % 4 == 0) {
   digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);
 } else {
  digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);


Code: [Select]
if (result == 1)
   {digitalWrite(B, HIGH);}
   {digitalWrite(B, LOW);}

So much simpler
Code: [Select]
digitalWrite(B, result ==1);
Or even skip the result assignment altogether.
What happened to the code tags?
