IDE - Serial Data

Hey folks,

I have a light sensor i need to get analog readings from.
I have set the serial to being in the sketch, connected the sensor to analog input but when i use serial monitor it shows nothing.
The sensor is working fine - but i have to just guess the light values to get any sketch working...
Any ideas why serial monitor is not working?
Thanks

Any ideas why serial monitor is not working?

This forum is very poor at mind reading. You have to help us.

I have set the serial to being in the sketch,

OK so post it ( read the how to use this forum sticky post to find out how)

The sensor is working fine

How do you know this?

but i have to just guess the light values to get any sketch working

Wow, you make a guess, you don't do anything else but guess and you code then works. As you have a mind reading arduino no wonder you thought we could read minds, sorry we can't.
