Void function: a function-definition is not allowed here before '{' token

Hello, I'm using a Nextion display with a DC motor as a fan, with ON (set to 100/255) and OFF buttons, and 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% (of speed) buttons. Trying to get only the ON button the only button to be able to power on the fan. Currently, all but the OFF button can turn on the motor.

I tried this in my void functions, just trialing with the one void fn:

Help1

void bFMinus2PopCallback (void *ptr) {

if (fanSpeed == HIGH) {
  analogWrite(motorPin, 255 / 4); // 25% speed
}
else {
  analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
}`Preformatted text`

fanSpeed is in regards to the ON button speed.

But error message appeared: a function-definition is not allowed here before '{' token

So I guess no conditional statements allowed outside void loop?

Thanks in advance.
I know there are heaps on questions about the same error, but couldn't find another Nextion user with the same problem.

it's more no code outside a function.

PS/ don't post images of code or text.... do yourself a favour and please read How to get the best out of this forum

Hello

Your bracket count doesn't match. For each { there must be one corresponding }, not more, not less.

In my void function part? It looks fine.

Edit: Oh, like this?

void bFMinus2PopCallback (void *ptr) {
if (fanSpeed == HIGH) 
  analogWrite(motorPin, 255 / 4); // 25% speed
else 
  analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
}

The interpreter complains about the following lines:

I can imagine that he doesn't like the spelling (void * ptr). but I am not sure how it (if wrong) has to be spelled correctly.

// Touch events

void bONPopCallback(void *ptr) {  // Release event for button - Void pointer, allocates memory to previous callback fn.
  analogWrite(motorPin, fanSpeed);  // Turn ON fan
}
void bOFFPopCallback(void *ptr) { // Release event for button
  analogWrite(motorPin, 0);  // Turn OFF fan
}
void bFMinus2PopCallback (void *ptr) {
  if (fanSpeed == HIGH)
    analogWrite(motorPin, 255 / 4); // 25% speed
  else
    analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
}
void bFMinusPopCallback (void *ptr) {
  //fanSpeed = fanSpeed - 5; //Minus 5 to current value of counter - Couldn't get this to work.
  if (fanSpeed == HIGH)
    analogWrite(motorPin, 255 / 2); // 50% speed
  else
    analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
}
void bFPlusPopCallback (void *ptr) {
  //fanSpeed = fanSpeed + 5; //Plus 5 to current value of counter - Couldn't get this to work.
  if (fanSpeed == HIGH)
    analogWrite(motorPin, 255 * 3 / 4); // 75% speed
  else
    analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
}
void bFPlus2PopCallback (void *ptr) {
  if (fanSpeed == HIGH)
    analogWrite(motorPin, 255); // 100% speed
  else
    analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
}

If/else statements works now, but not as intended.
Pressing the 25 - 100% buttons turns the motor off.

hmm....

We could probably be more helpful if you post the whole thing.

there is no such thing as an interpreter. It's a compiler.

post the full code and we'll have a look.

Posted in my original post. I didn't change anything else apart from the { }s.

Sorry, yes of course, I actually wanted to write. shame on me.

Fanspeed is 100. You're comparing it to HIGH (1). That is why the motor is being turned off.

I tried 100 too. Still doesn't work though.

Edit: Replacing with 100, the 25 - 100% doesn't turn motor off. But 25 - 100% buttons are able to turn on the motor, which I don't want.

and can you post (within code tags) the full compiler error?

That's not necessary any more since member guix figured out the problem.
Thanks anyways.

Working now on the 25 - 100% not turn on the motor.

So, if 100 == HIGH? Reply #11?

In light of your reply #12, what are you actually trying to do with 'fanspeed' there?
