Encoder rotate as clicked?

I manage to run a click rotary encoder with SimpleRotary library, there is no problem with the center clicked button as its working fine.

My problem is at the rotate function.

my original code is use up and down of 2 tactile button,


if (ButtonUp) {
      // increase 
      ISOIndex++;

      if (ISOIndex > MaxISOIndex) {
        ISOIndex = 0;
      }
    } else if (ButtonDown) {
    // decrease
      if (ISOIndex > 0) {
        ISOIndex--;
      }

When i try the encoder


int rotate = rotary.rotate();

if (rotate == 1) {
      // increase ISO
      ISOIndex++;

      if (ISOIndex > MaxISOIndex) {
        ISOIndex = 0;
      }
    } else if (rotate == 2) {
   // decrease
      if (ISOIndex > 0) {
        ISOIndex--;
      }

its just wont work, it detect a twist but it show a random value, it is a value in my code but randomly selected of up and down value.

It theres a way to set the encoder as a click anyway? One detent as one click?

Are you attempting to simulate a rotary encoder with two tactile buttons ?
You'll have a problem because it is not a simple matter of pressing one button for clockwise and the other for anti-clockwise.
You have to get the overlap correct. At certain points, two buttons must be pressed simultaneously.
Do a quick search for rotary encoder to see how it has to work. Here, for example: How Rotary Encoder Works and How To Use It with Arduino - HowToMechatronics

Hi @fyrus

to facilitate our help work, publish the complete schematic of your project.

Can be done freehand.

Post your entire code.

My guess is that your encoder pins are floating. Do you have pull ups?

Do you know how the detent positions on the encoder relate to the internal transitions. 1 detent can equal 1,2,or 4 internal transitons.

Start at the beginning.

What are you trying to do?

And what parts are you using?

Thanks for all the replys, i think i might find the solutions, i'll update after test
