ir reciver

I was trying to set up an ir receiver when this error message came up

In file included from ir_reviver.ino:1: /Users/lorenzo/Documents/Arduino/libraries/IRremote/IRremote.h:365: error: ISO C++ forbids initialization of member 'sendPin' /Users/lorenzo/Documents/Arduino/libraries/IRremote/IRremote.h:365: error: making 'sendPin' static

what does that mean???? :confused:

It's impossible to say unless you post the program that gave rise to the errors.


this is the code

include "IRremote.h"

int receiver = 13; // Signal Pin of IR receiver to Arduino Digital Pin 11

/-----( Declare objects )-----/ IRrecv irrecv(receiver); // create instance of 'irrecv' decode_results results; // create instance of 'decode_results'

void setup() /----( SETUP: RUNS ONCE )----/ { Serial.begin(9600); Serial.println("IR Receiver Button Decode"); irrecv.enableIRIn(); // Start the receiver

}/--(end setup )---/

void loop() /----( LOOP: RUNS CONSTANTLY )----/ { if (irrecv.decode(&results)) // have we received an IR signal?

{ translateIR(); irrecv.resume(); // receive the next value } }/* --(end main loop )-- */

/-----( Function )-----/ void translateIR() // takes action based on IR code received

// describing Remote IR codes

From section 6 of Read this before posting a programming question:

Post your complete sketch (program code)! If you don’t you waste time while people ask you to do that.
When you post your code put it between


tags. You can do that by hitting the </> button above the posting area.

Post a link to the documentation for the IR library you are using.
