Serial Test

Post by hamlynart1 » Sun Dec 04, 2011 7:30 pm

I have an old RunRev 4.0 stack that controls an arduino board but for some reason it doesn't work in Livecode (Mac). I checked the project that I originally used to build my stack called "SerialTest" downloaded from the Trozware site. This doesn't work in Livecode either. They both simply freeze the program and I have to force quit.

Any ideas?

Many Thanks in advance

Hi Jim,

nice to see you.

as far as the arduino is concerned there seem to be problems with the serial port.
Have a look at this very long thread on the Livecode use-list
http://runtime-revolution.278305.n4.nab ... l#a3243362

This is where Claudi Cornaz seems to have solved the problem of communicating with the arduino.

Also there is a stack on RevOnline
http://revonline2.runrev.com/stack/542/ ... rduino-Uno

where Thomas McGrath controls the arduino via Applescript.

I did not try either of the solutions.
Maybe someone who has used an arduino will chime in.

Kind regards

Bernd

Hi Bernd,

Thanks for the reply and nice to see you too. Apologies about the double post - I had to re-register because I was having problems with logging in etc.

Great to hear that there may be a solution to the problem - I'll have a look into it and give it a whirl.

Many Thanks again.

Jim H
