I`m trying to code a small display menu, which displays the “mode titles”. I guess if you look at the code you will get my point.
By using the UP/ DOWN buttons a variable is changed from 1- 5, thus changing the “title”.
To drive the four digit, seven segment common cathode display I am using the SevSeg.h library from a fellow named DeanIsMe.
The problem I have right now is, that my display ist just showing random characters on random digits (only one at a time), not the text that I have witten in sevseg.setChars("…");.
If I would only type the sevseg.setChars("…") in my loop, then everythign works fine and the right text gets displayed properly.
Any Ideas what I am doing wrong?
Earlier I tried to display random messages that change with time, like this:
and thad also did not work. It seems to me, that this library has problems as soon as time plays a role.
I would be very thankful if someone could give me some tips.
(See code in next post because it says its over 9000 characters :o)
