Adafruit_NeoPixel strip question related to frequency bitstream?

Hi Becky, and dear all,

Recently working with the Neopixel stripe and mirror project, I must say your Class is great

and please keep up the good work. I enjoyed every single word of the hole Class.

My question is : in thefunction, what exactly does the last two parameters, marked BOLD, the NEO_GRBW and NEO_KHZ800???

Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(NUM_LEDS, PIN, NEO_GRBW + NEO_KHZ800);

and how is it possible to write them as a sum. I mean NEO_KHZ800 what exactly this term is doing and why in arduino IDE it shows up Orange?..

Those are referring to the type of pixel (RGBW vs RGB vs GRB etc.) and the communication speed (earlier versions of this chip communicated at a slower rate). You can learn every little thing about the NeoPixel library here:
