7 segment clock multiplexer error

Hi, I am trying to make a digital clock with a DIY-7 segment displays, which will need multiplexing, I found an Instructable on it .This doesn't use DIY displays but uses individual displays. I want to make some changes so that I can use NTP instead of the RTC module and use an ESP8266 (NodeMCU). So while I compiled the Code. There are a load of errors. Can any of you help me, some of the errors are,

C:\Arduino Codes\Arduino Nano\7Seg Clock\7Seg Clock.ino:120:11: error: 'class Time' has no member named 'hour'; did you mean 'hr'?
hour = t.hour;

C:\Arduino Codes\Arduino Nano\7Seg Clock\7Seg Clock.ino:119:10: error: 'class DS1302' has no member named 'getTime'; did you mean 'time'?
t = rtc.getTime();

And if anyone can edit this code so that it will be ready for upload to the esp8266 then thanks :smile:

post your code using </>

Hi, @bheeduino
A copy of your circuit will also help, especially your DIY display.

Thanks.. Tom... :smiley: :+1: :coffee: :australia:

Looks like the libraries you are using are not the libraries used by the author of the sketch. You will either have to track down the libraries used by the author or adapt the sketch to work with the libraries you have.

Hi,
I think it came from here;
http://www.rinkydinkelectronics.com/library.php?id=5
I down loaded it and it compiled with the code from destructibles.

To add code please click this link;

Tom... :smiley: :+1: :coffee: :australia:

the circuit is simple as in this Picture I am Not connecting the push buttons and the rtc.

and the DIY-Display is nothing but LEDs connected as in a common cathode 7 segment

  Assigns timer0, timer1 or timer2 solely to the task of multiplexing the display (depending on
  the value of timerNumber).

  For an example of a 5 digit display with 100Hz refresh rate and able to resolve duty cycle in
  10%-steps a timing of the following resolution is needed:

    1/( 100Hz * 5 digits * 0.1 ) = 200us

  It is sufficient, but the brightness should be adjustable to more than 10 values. Hence a
  resolution of 16us is selected by setting the prescaler to 64 and the compare register to 3:

    interrupt delay = (64*(3+1))/16MHz = 16us

  The timerCounter variable is of type unsigned int having a maximum value of 65535. Incrementing
  this at each interrupt and taking action upon timerCounterOnEnd or timerCounterOffEnd yields
  a maximum delay for something to happen:

    max delay for something to happen = 16us * (65535+1) = 1.04s

  which should be more than sufficient if you want to be able to look at your display.

   being declared in a persistent scope and that the user doesn't change it.

/*
 * HIGH LEVEL WRITE-FUNCTIONS
 *
 * High-level write functions should work in the following way:
 *
 * writeClock(int aa, int bb) - writes a time in the following format aa:bb (or aa.bb if no colon, or aabb if no dp).
 * writeClock(int aa, int bb, char c) - where char c specifies decimator ("_" for no decimator)
 * writeClock(int bb) or writeClock(int bb,char c) - writes in the format aa:bb (or similar) where aa is deduced from bb.
 * write(int a)
 * write(float a)
 * write(int a, int point)
 * write(char* a)
 *
 * For the timer interrupt mode, the value must simply be stored to a private variable, and printed by interruptAction. For
 * storing, the following is needed:
 *
 * int _writePoint	- Stores the fixed point in case of writeFixed is used.
 * int _writeInt	- Stores the number for write(int), writeFixed() and writeClock() (convert to only one number bb for clock)
 * float _writeFloat	- Stores the float for write(float)
 * char* _writeStr	- Stores a pointer to a string to be written. This pointer must be maintained outside the class
 * String _writeStrObj	- Stores a string object to be written.
 * char _writeMode	- Describes which writing function/mode is used:
 *				i - write(int)
 *				f - write(float)
 *				p - writeFixed()
 *				s - write(char* a)
 *				o - write(String)
 *				: - writeClock() with colon as decimator
 *				. - writeClock() with period as decimator
 *				_ - writeClock() with no decimator
 *
 * Further on, all functions should be using timer if _timerID!=-1. If not, the should multiplex through the
 * display once and rely on the function being placed in a loop.
 *
 * Perhaps the write int/float functions need a separate private parsing function to extract the digits? Here's the algorithm:
 *
 *   if num > (10^_numOfDigits-1) or num < (-10^_(numOfDigits-1)+1)	// Store these values in object during digit pin assignment to save computation?
 *     Display a positive or negative overload
 *
 *   else display can handle number
 *
 *     num = 2468 						// example
 *     digit_0 = num / (10^(_numOfDigits-1))			// 2
 *     digit_1 = (num / (10^(_numOfDigits-2)))%10		// 4
 *     i_th_digit = (num / (10^(_numOfDigits-1-i)))%10		// 6 and 8 for i=2 and 3
 * 
 *     IMPROVED:
 *     num = 2468						// exampmle
 *     digit_0 = num % 10;
 *     num /= 10;
 *     digit_1 = num % 10;
 *     num /= 10;
 *
 *	FIXED POINT:
 *	write similar to int, but write fp at correct position.
 *	num=1234, and fp=0 => 1234 (don't show .)
 *	num=1234, and fp=1 => 123.4
 *      num=1234, and fp=4 => 0.123 (option 1, too unpredictable and heavy)
 *	num=1234, and fp=4 => 1234 (simply don't show fp as it's invalid)
 *

Characters: Colon, apostrophe, comma(DP), randomly assignable symbols?
Most symbols can be confined to one character, but colon should be able to assign in two parts (UC and LC).
Yet two colons are also present on some displays. And on some displays, colons and apostorphes are treated as a separate digit using an additional common cathode/anode.

I've decided to treat the symbols in the following way

  DP is assigned as an eight segment for each digit, as this is the only way I've seen it done. Simple.
  I want the functions setDPPin(int), setDP(), clearDP(). DP should be cleared at each changeDigit (i.e. in ClearDisp?)
  In the parsing function it should be possible to write "1.2.3.4.".

  Colon are treated in many different ways on many different displays. I want a function setColonPin() that are overloaded
  and take most of the case. setColon() and clearColon() should turn it on or off. I'll explain the scenarios, and the syntax:

    Colon may be split in two parts UC (upper colon) and LC (lower colon) or colon may be hardwired as one LED

    1. Colon has its own cathodes and anodes. Ground the cathode if common cathode or tie anode to supply in case of common anode. 
       Syntax: setColonPin(segPin) where segPin is the other pin. In this case the colon needs not be multiplexed. If split segment pin
       for UC/LC, the user joins them together. setColon()/clearColon() writes directly to segmentPin.
    2. UC/LC is joined together using its own segment pin, and shares common anode/cathode with one of the digits.
       Syntax: setColonPin(segPin,digPin). The function will detect at what digit to type the colon based on digitPin, and store this in colonDigU and
       colonDigL. If no digit is tied to digitPin issue an error. colonState is a private member variable being set or cleared by setColon()/clearColon().
       writeDigit() checks colonState when on colonDigU or colonDigL digits and writes accordingly.
    3. UC shares common anode/cathode digit pin with one of the digits, while LC shares with another digit. They are the same segment pin.
       Syntax: setColonPin(segPin,digLPin,digUPin). This works in the same way as above, except that different values are stored to DigU and DigL.
    4. UC and LC are treated like seperate segments on a new "symbol" digit pin(!). In these cases there is usually also an apostrophe (A) segment.
       The UC and LC segments should be joined together into one segment (C).
       Syntax: setSymbolPin(SegCPin,SegAPin,digPin) digPin will be stored to symbDigPin, and the multiplexing must occur over one additional digit.
       This implies modification to i.e. setRefreshRate, setDigitDelay and maybe other functions. All functions must be checked.

    Members needed in class:

      private:
        colonState	;	// _segOn or _segOff.
	aposState;	// _segOn or _segOff.
        colonDigU;	// Which digits to activate colon at (one digit for UC and one for LC)
	colonDigL;	// colonDigU==colonDigL==-1 means that it is treated as a separate digit, case 1 or 4. (check negative numbers for int)
	symbDigPin;	// If the colon is on a separate digit pin the symbol digit pin number is stored here. Otherwise, it is -1. Non-zero values imply more muxing.
        colonSegPin;
	aposSegPin;
      public:
	setColonPin(int);
        setColonPin(int,int);
	setColonPin(int,int,int);
        setSymbPin(int,int,int,int);
        setColon();
        clearColon();
	setApos();
	clearApos();

  The parsing function should parse colon to off except when any colon present in string. Same with apostorphe. I.e. "34:07". I initially wanted to have support for two
  colons since you need that on a watch. However, I've settled on only one colon since there are almost none display available with two colons. If I find one, and will
  use one, I will simply duplicate the colon stuff in my class.

  Actually, cases 1, 2 and 3 can be joined together! The colon can be turned on irrespective of what digits they are on (at least as long as there are only one colon).
  This simplifies the class:

      private:
        colonState;	// _segOn or _segOff.
	aposState;	// _segOn or _segOff.
	symbDigPin;	// If the colon is on a separate digit pin the symbol digit pin number is stored here. Otherwise, it is -1. Non-zero values imply more muxing.
        colonSegPin;
	aposSegPin;
      public:
	setColonPin(int);
        setSymbPin(int,int,int,int);
        setColon();
        clearColon();
	setApos();
	clearApos();

/*
The functions for setColon(), clearColon(), setApos(), clearApos() directly sets or clears the
segment pins if no symbol pin is assigned. Since no symbol pin is assigned colon (apos isn't set) has
a separate segment pin "Colon" and shares a digit pin with one or two other digits 
(in case it is split into UC and LC). In this case it makes sense to control it just like other
segments; by setting and clearing the segment pin with setColon() or clearColon() after the correct
digit is selected with changeDigit(). Compare with setDP()/clearDP(). Furthermore, it is not necessary
to identify WHICH digit the colon segments apply for since, if colon is turned on, one may simply switch
on the segment pin for all digits. Nothing will be tied to the colon segment pin for other digits than
those it applies to, hence it is sufficient to initialize this kind of hardware with setColon(int colonPin).
Sometimes, a colon is present as one or two complete stand-alone LEDs. In this case, the can be wired
up into one of these configurations to work.

In the other main case, a separate symbol pin is assigned for colon and apostrophe. This is actually an
additional digit pin which must be muxed across. The segment pins are shared with other segments such as
A-G. This is a compact way of allowing many symbols (colon and apostrophe) while only adding one more pin.
This configuration is programmed with setSymbPins(int digPin, int segUCPin, int segLCPin, int segAPin),
where digPin is the symbol digit pin and the other pins are the pins used for segment UC, LC and apos.
If colon is present as one segment only, segUCPin and segULPin can be the same value. Sometimes, colon
and apostorphe are present as stand-alone diodes with their own cathodes and anodes not being connected
to anything else. In this case, join their cathodes or anodes (in case of common cathode or anode respectively)
and connect their other terminal to one segment pin each to make the mentioned configuration.
The behaviour set/clear behaviour of these digits are a bit different in this case. The set/clear-funciton
only sets a flag to on or off. In order to type the characters you must mux to the symbol digit by issuing
changeDigit('s'). This function will light up the appropriate symbols in accordance with the flags.

    /* The colon/apostrophe handling needs some further explanation:
     *
     * colonSegPin is the segment pin for colon. I.e. some displays have a separate segment for colon on one of the digits.
     * others have colon split across two digits: i.e. the upper part has a separate segment on one digit, whereas the lower
     * part has uses the same segment pin but on another digit. It is assumed that this segment pin is only used for colon,
     * and it is stored into colonSegPin by setColonPin(int). The functions setColon() and clearColon() turns on/off this pin,
     * respectively.
     *
     * On some displays, colon is one or two separate free-standing LED(s) with its own cathode and anode. In case of common
     * cathode, ground the cathod and treat the anode(s) as a segment pin. The other way around in case of common anode. This
     * should make the method described above applicable.
     *
     * On other displays, the upper colon part, the lower colon part, as well as an apostrophe, shares segments with the usual
     * segments (i.e. segments A, B and C) but is treated as a separate symbol digit that must be multiplexed along with the
     * other digits. In this case the function setSymbPins(int,int,int,int) is used to assign a pin to that digit, stored in
     * symbDigPin. The pin corresponding to the upper colon segment is stored in colonSegPin, whereas the lower colon segment
     * is stored in colonSegLPin. aposSegPin holds the segment pin for the apostrophe. symbDigPin being unequal to -1 is an
     * indication for multiplexing-related functions that it must multiplex over _numOfDigits+1 digit pins. In this case, the
     * setColon(), clearColon(), setApos() and clearApos() does not directly influence the pin, but the variable colonState and
     * aposState. In this case, the digit must be changed to the symbol digit by issuing changeDigit('s') in order to show the
     * symbols.

I will Definitely try that ,thanks :slight_smile:

Alright. I clearly didn't know what i was doing but I went to the instructable guy's website, found the Code, compiled, error. And I Deleted all related libraries and reinstaled them and it compiled. Thanks for your time.
