Servo + state change buttons help

Hey everybody im new with arduino/coding/electronics so please bare with me.

I am using a lilypad arduino, a standard servo and button switch with a 10k resistor.

what i want to happen is every time i press the button i want the servo to move 36 degrees so that it will go a full 180 after 5 presses. on the 6th step i would like it to reset to 0 degrees.

I tried it using if statements and i couldn’t get it to work so iv recreated it using switch case but im not sure about how to define the switch case…

#include <Servo.h>
// these constants won't change:
const int buttonPin = 2;      // the pin that the push button is attached to 
Servo myservo;                // create servo object to control a servo

int buttonPushCounter = 0;   // counter for the number of button presses
int buttonState     = 0;      // current state of the button
int lastButtonState = 0;      // previous state of the button
int pos             = 0;      // variable to store the servo positions

void setup() {
  // initialize serial communication:
  Serial.begin(9600);  
  myservo.attach(8);          // attaches the servo on pin 8 to the servo object
  pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);  // initialize the button pin as a input
}

void loop() {
  buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin); // read the pushbutton input pin
  if (buttonState != lastButtonState) // compare buttonState to previous state
{
    if (buttonState == 1) {
      // if the current state is 1 then the button
      // went from off to on:
      buttonPushCounter++;
      Serial.println("on");
      Serial.print("number of button pushes:  ");
      Serial.println(buttonPushCounter, DEC);
      if (buttonState == 1)

  // do something different depending on the 
  // range value:
  switch (buttonPushCounter) {
  case 0: buttonPushCounter = 1;  // user pressed the button once
    Serial.println("1")
        for(pos = 0; pos <= 36; pos += 5); //goes from 0 degrees to 36 degrees
        {  myservo.write(pos);                  // tell servo to go to position 'pos'
          delay(15);        // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
        }
    break;
  case 1:    buttonPushCounter = 2; // user pressed the button a second time
    Serial.println("2");
      for(pos = 36; pos <= 72; pos += 5)    // goes from 36 degrees to 72 degrees
     {                                
          myservo.write(pos);                  // tell servo to go to position 'pos'
          delay(15);                           // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
        }
    break;
  case 2:    buttonPushCounter = 3; // user pressed the button a third time
    Serial.println("3");
      for(pos = 72; pos <= 108; pos += 5)    // goes from 72 degrees to 108 degrees
        {                                
          myservo.write(pos);                  // tell servo to go to position 'pos'
          delay(15);                           // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
        }  
    break;
  case 3:    buttonPushCounter = 4; // user pressed the button a fourth time
    Serial.println("4");
     buttonPushCounter = 4;
        for(pos = 108; pos <= 144; pos += 5)    // goes from 108 degrees to 144 degrees
        {                                
          myservo.write(pos);                  // tell servo to go to position 'pos'
          delay(15);                           // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
        } 
    break;
   case 4:  buttonPushCounter = 5; // user pressed the button a fifth time
    Serial.println("5");
     for(pos = 144; pos <= 180; pos += 5)    // goes from 144 degrees to 180 degrees
        {                                
          myservo.write(pos);                  // tell servo to go to position 'pos'
          delay(15);            // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
        }
      break;
    case 5:  buttonPushCounter = 6; //user pressed button a sixth time
     Serial.println("5");
      for(pos = 180; pos >= 0; pos -= 5)    // goes from 36 degrees to 72 degrees
        {                                
          myservo.write(pos);                  // tell servo to go to position 'pos'
          delay(15);                           // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
        }  
      
  } 

}

any and all help is appreciated. Thanks

Discussion of this problem is going on here: http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1291234547

You shouldn't cross post. Causes more work for the people trying to help you. Then they get angry and don't want to help. (Speaking from experience here, not getting on your case.)

Looks like you updated your code. Should post it in the other thread.
