Hi everyone,

I'm a new guy using arduino compatible complier for labview, that's cool tool.

 Before this time, i have some experience in using labview for data acquisition in my office.

So I'm very happy when i heard about the toolkit.

I have a plan to make a small application which i have make a menu (like menu setup on some device) using four buttons: 

up button, down button, enter button and menu button. For example: when i press menu button, lcd will be shown itemss:

1. parameter1, 2.parameter2, 3.parameter3,etc. (using up/down button to scroll between the items, using enter button

 to access one of the items). press enter and menu button at the same time to exit.

So if any one who get some experience in this field can share knowledge, code examples or something like that,

I'll greatly appreciate for that. Becase of new guy in this field, so i'm so sorry about any inconvenience.

 

Thank and best regards in advanced

Take a look at the LCD examples included with the Compiler.  It shows how to write text to each line of the display.  You can also look at the Digital Input examples showing how to read from and debounce buttons.  You would just need to come up with a simple program to read button presses and update the display accordingly.  This should be pretty straightforward in LabVIEW.

Thank for your instructions,

I tried it but it's okay. But in a big program, as I mentioned before, I don't know how to manage the menus (such as increment and decrements button, so on)
