I just connected a VL6180 sensor and am accessing it via the Pololu VL6180 library. It works fine for short ranges but the max distance I get back is 255 mm ... but the device is able to messure far above one meter and I need this distance.
What parameter do I need to set to get this information out.
This leads to a general question. I am used programming microchip microcontrollers. In their IDE I simply click on includes and am forwarded into the selected header file and can read more information there.
Is there a similar function in the Arduino IDE? Whenever I try to open the header files (no matter if I do it from the Arduino IDE or from a Windows notepad) I always end up with an unreadable junk of connected asci text what makes it impossible for me to find usefull data.
