Greetings fellow geeks! This is my first post, so be nice! ;)
Okey, here is the deal, i'm pretty much a noob when it comes to programming, so i need a lot of help. (If someone want to write the entire code that's okey. There is going to be a video of this, so i'll give credits)
I have a Arduino UNO R2 and a 2x16 LCD shield i've made that uses the Liquidcrystal library.
What i want to make is a variable pulse timer for camera time lapse. So i want a pot and a start/stop button or 2 up/down buttons and a start/stop button. With this pot or these buttons i want to select the number of output pulses and set time. also a pulse counter would be nice so it shows how many times it has given a pulse out. So it should look something like this.. This is the setup screen. PulseNmbr: 10 Time: 10min
This is the "run screen" RUNNING pulsenmbr: 8
So the setup screen is shown when you set the time and number of pulses. Then when you press Start is jumps to the next screen and displays the running text and counts the number of pulses. In the example screen above it would do 10 pulses in a 10minute time span, so 1 pulse each minute. So the setup and start procedure should look something like this... Set number of pulses -> press start -> select timespan -> press start again to start it.
If it makes this easier i also got a 4x20 LCD laying around.
I would be VERY happy if someone with mad programming skills, who think this is childsplay would like to make the program for this device!
