Introduction: On Off LED With 1 Button

I am not good at English...But I will try my best.

Many guys(including me :) try to on and off a LED with 1 push button. But due to some logical error in the IDE, it can not be happened. Sometimes, the LED comes to life when the button is pressed; but immediately becomes off when the button is released. I tried a lot and at last made a solution. In this instructable, you will be able to switch on the LED when the button is pressed once, and switch it off when the button is pressed twice. I will try my best to wxplain the code. Best Of Luck.

Step 1: Components

Arduino Uno

LED

330ohm Resistor

Simple push button

10k Resistor

Jumper wires

Step 2: Wiring

Make the connection as below:

LED + to 330ohm Resistor to Arduino pin 3

LED - to GND

Button(pole1) to Arduino 5v

Button(pole2) to Arduino pin 2

Now ground the button through a 10k Resistor.

Step 3: Coding

Copy the below Code or Download the ino file:

int stateNow = 0;

int stateBefore = 0;

int i = 0;

int j = 0;

void setup() {

pinMode (2, INPUT);

pinMode (3, OUTPUT);

}

void loop() {

stateNow = digitalRead(2);

if (stateNow != stateBefore) {

if (stateNow==HIGH and i==0) {

digitalWrite (3, HIGH);

j=1;

}

else if (stateNow==LOW and j==1) {

i=1;

}

else if (stateNow==HIGH and i==1) {

digitalWrite (3, LOW);

j=0;

}

else if (stateNow==LOW and j==0) {

i=0;

}

}

stateBefore=stateNow;

}

Step 4: Upload the Code and Have Fun !!!

If you can not understand any line of the code, then please comment.....I will solve it in no time.
