Topic: Help for a Newbie - Single Digit 7 Segment (Read 348 times) previous topic - next topic


I'm new to the Arduino world and was looking for some help.  I would like to use a 7 segment display with multiple switches...I'd like to be able to depress a switch and have the display show 3...depress a different switch and get 5 and so on.  This is actually for a game.  Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

It would be best to use a shift register to control the 7-segment display and use digitalRead() for the buttons. Use the wiring diagram for the shift register and the code will need to be edited a little. remove the second shiftout for the second shift register disregard all wires for it. In the diagram connect the segment display to the q outputs. The ouputs for the shift register are in binary. B10010010 Turns on lights connected to 1, 4, and 7.
