@Didgitalpunk, Could you put together the entire code using your solution? I'm trying to learn both ways and would be interesting in seeing it. Of course, if this is ok with SimonM83.Thanks
Interactive Menus for your project with a Display and an Encoder
Ok.Thank you for you help.I got it working. Just in case someone else has the same type of rotary encoder, the connections are listed below. Now the key is to fully understand the code and incorporated it into an existing/new project.ROTARY CONNECTIONS Four_Pin_Side /Arduino (UNO) left_Pin: GND Next_Pin: N/C (unless used for red shaft) Next_Pin: N/C (unless used for green shaft) Right_Pin: 4 Three_Pin_Side /Aruduino (UNO)left_Pin: 2Middle_Pin: GNDRight_Pin: 3
The image is attached. As mentioned there's four pins on one side and 3 pins on the other side. Good call on the 'illumination knob'. In the picture, (on the four pin side) I applied ground on the far left. I applied a (+) voltage on the second pin the shaft illuminated green. I applied a (+) voltage on the third pin and the shaft turned red. I applied a (+) voltage on the fourth pin and nothing happened. Now that I see 3 of the four pins are for the illumination, There are still the three pins on the other side and the fourth pin. How would I connect it according to your diagram?Thanks for your help (in advance)
Additional Note: on the four pin side. the fourth pin is for the pushbutton. I put a meter to ground and the fourth pin. When I pressed the shaft in, resistance went to '0'.
Easy Arduino Menus for Rotary Encoders
Very nice information. I have a rotary encoder. But, it has 4 pins on one side and 3 pins on the other side.How would I connect it to the UNO?
Arduino Physics Proficiency Display Board
Great Project!I prototyped this project, but for the base the lcd displays on for a couple seconds when powered up. Then its blank. When I press either of the two buttons, the lcd displays for a couple seconds then turn off. Any ideas?

Build a Raspberry Pi SUPER Weather Station
Ok. You were correct. I looked in my account and there was another 'key' there for some reason. I used that second key and it worked. I'm still puzzled about the second key.I forgot to mention....Great project. Thanks for you input.
I checked both the WU and InitialState access codes. But, I'll triple check again. But, thanks for your input. If you think of anything else....much appreciated.
It's the same. I had the time update interval set to 0.5 as indicated in the instruction. I let it sit for over 5 minutes. Other folks have gotten it to work so it must be something on my system possibly. I used the Pi3 and PiB+.
I get the same thing. Did you resolve this?
I found out what my problem was. I used ssh from my laptop to remote into the pi and start the weather program. Everything works as long as my ssh session does not die. That was the problem. When my laptop goes to sleep or if I exit the session the weather program freezes. The solution (for me) is to run the weather program directly from the pi and not remote from a ssh session.
Raspberry Pi: Launch Python script on startup
Very cool project. Great explanations as well.I got this to work on the PiA+, B+ and Pi3. What I find is that it runs for a few hours this it freezes. Meaning the display is there but the seconds stop...no more updates. I can still ping it with no problem. I used a 5' and 7' display. Any ideas?

Very nice project. Are you having any issues with heat? It seems like the enclosure (from the pictures) don't have any venting.

I tried to compile and received an error (see picture)Also, would I use the same code for a Mega2560?Very cool project.
Also, which IDE version did you compile in?
