Good Afternoon Here is my very first Arduino Code that i wrote, just completed it now.Fritzing: http://fritzing.org/projects/tilt-sw...d-leds-arduino
Tilt Switch or Button Activated LED's

Turns on and off a light emitting diode(LED) connected to digital pin 13 and 12, when activating the Tilt Switch or a pushbutton attached to pin 2. When the tilt switch gives the Arduino the Off Signal, LED12 Will Switch off and LED13 will turn on.

---How To Connect your switch to Digital pin 2

LED1 to Digital Pin13 and LED2 to Digital Pin12

Connect the switch Via a 100K Resistor to the 5V Pin on the Arduino

Connect Led ground to any ground on the Arduino board

The circuit: * LED attached from pin 13 to ground * LED attached from pin 12 to ground * pushbutton attached to pin 2 from +5V * 10K resistor attached to pin 2 (switch/button) from ground

Note: on most Arduinos there is already an LED on the board attached to pin 13.

// constants won't change. They're used here to
// set pin numbers:
const int buttonPin = 2;     // the number of the pushbutton pin
const int ledPin12 =  12;      // the number of the 1st LED pin
const int ledPin13 =  13;      // the number of the 2nd LED pin


// variables will change:
int buttonState = 0;         // variable for reading the pushbutton status

void setup() {
  // initialize the LEDs pin as an output:
  pinMode(ledPin12, OUTPUT);     
  pinMode(ledPin13, OUTPUT);  
  // initialize the pushbutton pin as an input:
  pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);   
}

void loop(){
  // read the state of the pushbutton value:
  buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin);

  // check if the pushbutton is pressed.
  // if it is, the buttonState is HIGH:
  if (buttonState == HIGH) {   
    // turn LED on:   
    digitalWrite(ledPin12, HIGH); 
  }
  else {
