Introduction: Create TrackBar on You PC and Control Arduino.

Picture of Create TrackBar on You PC and Control Arduino.

Hello everyone,

Today I will show you how to create TrackBar on you PC and turn on LED13 if you scroll the TrackBar control to Position 2 (Remember: programming usually begins in 0 then it will be the third position).

what do you need:

1. arduino board.

2. you need to install Progduino (its free) - http://www.progduino.com

3. arduino code editor

1. copy the code and uplaod it to your arduino board.

int incomingByte = 0;

void setup()

{

Serial.begin(9600);

pinMode(13, OUTPUT);

ProgduinoRunOnce();

}

void loop()

{

if (Serial.available() > 0) {

if(Serial.read() == '2'){

digitalWrite(13, HIGH);

}

else{

digitalWrite(13, LOW);

}

}

}

void ProgduinoRunOnce(){

Serial.println(F("WindowSize; width:400; height:200"));

Serial.println(F("createTrackBar; width:325; height:50; top:20; left:30; name:TrackBar1; value:9; Minimum:0; Maximum:10;"));

Serial.println(F("onScroll; control:TrackBar1; function:getData; ctrl:TrackBar1; prop:value;"));

}

2. run progduino and start scroll the control, when you get to the third position you will see the LED13 turned on.

This is just a small example and you can do with Progduino many things very easily.
