Hi,
I want to program PIC18f such that i can switch on/off LED for different timings. Example if push button1 pressed the LED is on for 1 sec and off for 2 and this continues unless another button pressed which changes the time example 2 sec on and 4 sec off. I am doing this using delays however, the problem is that pic doesnt recognize when i press second button while first routine is on. that is during delay time. Please tell me where i'm going wrong. Thank you

Welcome to AAC.

During delay time μC will not respond to inputs.
I do not know yet how to go around tht but I know there are others here who can do tht.
You have to wait a while for them to find your thread and post the code you already wrote.

Hello....

Try having your delay broken down in an loop.

Code:
   // Delay
   for (z = 0; z < 100; z++)
   {
      Delay_ms(1);
      checkInputsButons();
   }
The delay is 100mS + the time taken for the for next loop to execute, but stuck (non-responsive) -- to other functions for only 1mS at a time.

I have an project here that is basically just four buttons and four LEDs.

What can be done with just four buttons and four LEDs?




Have a read through some code here with button de-bouncing:

Code:
// 16 in 1 LEDs 'n Buttons FUN

unsigned short nStart = 0;
unsigned short dir = 0;
unsigned short keyUp = 0;
unsigned short keyDown = 0;
unsigned short keyPress = 0;
unsigned int randomNo = 0;

unsigned short i = 0;
unsigned short j = 0;
unsigned short k = 0;
unsigned short e = 0;
unsigned short s = 0;
unsigned short simon[32]= {0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,
                           0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0};

What can be done with just four buttons and four LEDs?
With just four buttons and four LEDs I could, dare I say, RULE THE WORLD.

Or just hijack someone else's thread. Please begin your own topic to discuss your project board.

And welcome to the forums!

Arh it is applicable to topic and I think the OP will appreciate the code. Probably trying to achieve the same thing. But perhaps not on the same line of thought as in 'what the bloody hell can I make with just 33 one-cent parts'

Thanks for the welcome! ;)
