Yes DynDns used before

 

Iron

Yes, familiar with DynDNS

Iron

Great to have access to the recorded sessions!

Iron

Taking the class offline

Iron

Missed the live lecture

Iron

Does anyone have tried this on the different tablet besides Samsung galaxy?

Sorry i was late, Great Presentation Fred, be there tomorrow.

Iron

OK..

"See" you tomorrow...

Blogger

Anymore questions, thoughts???

Blogger

Great Fred...Thanks...That did it!! I  wasn't force stopping the old app...that did the trick!

I'LL look forward to futrue classes you teach here!..and as always the monthly N&V column!

Carl

Iron

thanks you all, see you all tomorrow again...goodnight!

@kenm53

Nuts and Volts (Design Cycle column) and SERVO Magazine.

Hopefully, you will "see" me again here as well.

Blogger

@CSchell

Make sure you force stop the application if you've loaded it beforehand.

I also found that you must power the FT311D board before plugging in the USB.

Always configure first.

Make sure your code does not have the == error in one of the IF statements.

Blogger

Fred,

If you are still on - where can I follow you?  Blogs, columns, etc.?

Thanks!

Iron

@farhad21

I was just joking with you :-)

Get some sleep.  "See" you tomorrow!

Blogger

Teacher Fred

lol really really sorry for yesterday ,I was up last evening and listen the archive class :)

I am a good student trust me .

Iron

Fred - This was great as always. I've followed your N&V column for many years and have always liked your style! - You never give anyone a chance to get bored, before you change topics on us!! I have learned a lot from you over the years, particularly on the PIC32's.

Anyhow, quick question from Tuesday's' FTDI driver lecture. Computer connects to my tablet via bridge alright...BUT I keep getting a error on my tablet stating, java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: length=0...

Any suggestions on where to start looking for my problem?? I can run the app...but it is not drawing correctly

Carl

 

Iron

@ebrown

You are welcome.

Look for the download package sometime tomorrow morning.

Blogger

@Lt. Dan:

It does not appear to have Bluetooth, but it has WiFi.  It's thicker and heavier than the Samsung tab 7 that I just bought.  I don't know about the manufacturer - you might want to do some research there.

Iron

@kenm53 - Thanks for the info. I'll check it out.

Iron

@farhad21

You too.  I was happy to see that you were on time today ;-)

MID Google Android 4.0 4GB 1.2GHz 7" Tablet PC - Assorted Colors

$68 from nomorerack.com

I have bought stuff from these guys before with no problems.  I can't make any informed statements about the tablet.  But it may be a decent platform - you'll have to make your own decision.

Iron

Teacher Fred

Ok thanks for pointing the matters and have a great evening .

Iron

@Lt.Dan

Thanks!

I'm glad the series has been useful.

Blogger

For those of you still aboard, thank you very much!

I'm having a good time doing this lecture series and I hope you are too.

 

Blogger

Thanks Fred. And I agree with @DonH on your presentation style and pace of the material. This has been a valuable experience the get a leg up on Android development. BTW - I used to read your contributions in Circuit Cellar... loved them too. Hmm... Good just never goes out of style. Thanks.

Iron

@farhad21

Be sure to check the B4A library requirements.

Some libraries require an Android level that is higher than 2.

Blogger

@sherlock

You are welcome..

Blogger

Lt.Dan

With respect to Teacher Fred and his answer ,The Android version 2.2 (which is called Gingerbird )

has all the functionalities to handle your embeded request using Basic language.

 

Iron

@Don H

Thanks!

 

Blogger

Fred,

I caught this on archive.  You have a great presentation style and pace the material for the 1/2 hour format.

Thanks for the info on DynDNS.

And especially for keeping this lively and making us think we can actually do it ourselves!

Iron

@Lt.Dan

I used a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet. The Android version is 4.  It has a 10-inch screen.

Be sure to get the model that can access the internet if you want to be totally mobile.

Blogger

@farhad21

Correct.

Blogger

 Teacher Fred :Bluetooth is good for private connections and to make  local servlet while the TCP/Ip wifi would be a great for connecting remote device and covering wide band data am I right ?!!!  ,

Iron

@Fred - for instance, what Android device did you use to develop the class material? (Type (i.e. tablet?/phone?) Model Name/Number, Version, Screen size, OS version, etc.). Thanks. (I'm new to Android...)

Iron

B4A Bridge can use Bluetooth or Wifi connections.

Yes.. B4A should ask for a matching IP.  The PC must be on the same LAN as the Android device.

 

Blogger

Thanks Fred, see all tomorrow

Iron

nice reading those blogs/reactions from colleagues here...

Fred, I understand what you're saying but when in B4A, B4A Bridge you say connect Wireless and NOT connect BT, should not the B4A client on my Android phone connect once I enter its IP address in to the B4A desktop app?????

Iron

@kenm53 Completely agree. Real-world examples (particularly working ones) are an *invaluable* complement to good docs.

Iron

Crawling back to bed now. Thanks Fred. Looking forward to session 5 tomorrow. Ross

@Derek

B4A can target Bluetooth and TCP/IP.  WiFi is nothing more than Ethernet frames running on a wireless medium.  Ethernet frames can carry TCP/IP information.  Chances are that your phone's wifi engine is connected to your LAN. Bluetooth does not work in LANs.  Bluetooth uses piconets and frequency hops a bunch.

Blogger

Fred - CCarpenter mentions he is experimenting with an older Android 2.2 tablet device, that is too old to duplicate the hardware experiments you've demonstrated. Can you please provide some specifics on minimum requirements for a device needed to duplicate the labs? Thanks.

Iron

I'll reiterate what someone else said - the real world examples with code are very valuable and this is one of the more useful (for me) webinars that I have attended.

Iron

according to the www.ccsinfo.com website

Limited Time Offer

Buy the newly introduced PIC18F45K22 development kit with C Compiler and receive "Master and Command C for PIC®MCU" by Fred Eady for FREE!

 

So it appears the book is free providing you buy the development kit with the C compiler package

@Heliflyer_uk

There will be a download package up tomorrow.

The rest can be had from the lecture archives.

Blogger

That would be pretty cool thanks Teacher Fred.

Iron

@farhad21

Yes. There are  a few more choices for language.

In that B4A has Chinese and Russian translations, you may find that there are many I don't know about.

Blogger

@Fred Eady

Many thanks Fred; always like your classes because they are grounded in working examples.

Iron

@webfootguy, This is a stupid question, but we don't really need a Virgin Mobile contract to do what Fred describes in this course, right?

Gold

OK.. I'll try to do a BROADCAST answer:

The book - Contact CCS and mention my name  www.ccsinfo.com

Files - I plan to have a download package for the course up by tomorrow afternoon

Blogger

Fred - can you replay the information to get your book?

Iron

Jennifer, could you talk to Fred and get the process to get the free book posted for us? tnx.

Iron

Excellent - Thank you.

Iron

@Fred Eady

Any chance of getting the complete set of files for all the examples by the end of the session tomorrow?

Iron

@Jennifer Campbell - seems some posts get lost... anything you can do to improve that would be great. Thanks.

Iron

Madam Jennifer,

I want a book too

Iron

Fred, you still online?

 

Iron

@webfootguy - that's pretty affordable to get started. Thanks.

Iron

I've been playing with B4A with a WinXP pc, wifi and an old android 2.2 tablet.  It seems to be working fine, but I've not had enought time to do much with it.  Fred indicates that my tablet is too old to duplicate the hardware experiments he's been discussing.

Iron

@ webfootguy

thanks for your info, that's great!

@webfootguy, Thanks. Will check it out.

Gold

@aak

me too, I will try soon.

For you folks looking for a cheap Android device that supports WiFi and Bluetooth for testing this out, the best I have found so far is $39.99 from amazon (link:  http://amzn.to/ZFppjo).

Phil H.

Iron

I haven't used B4A yet but I bought the compiler and will soon buy a BeagleBone Black. I want to experiment with IoT to control devices.

Gold

Hello teacher Fred ,can we use another language code rather than UTF8 to convert from byte code to string ?!!

Iron

I have not used B4A yet, but I think it is interesting and may use it in the near future.

Iron

Hi Fred, very interesting application using B4A which I think is an excellent development platform for Android. Be good to see a complete list of hardware and software to make the whole package work.

This post really doesn't want to go through.  Trying for the fourth time.

@Skunky  I've used no-ip org for over a year with no complaints.

Iron

Jennifer, B4A seems to be a capable development platform for Android. I would like to be able to perform some hands on tests using a realdevice and an application to solve a real world problem. While the topics presented here are very interesting (to say the least), the needs that I see where an Android device, along with B4A could be a solution, are somewhat different than the projects that have been presented so far.

Iron

B4A looks really good for some things I want to do. I bought a copy but probably won't have a chance to test drive it until the weekend. Thanks for introducing it to us Fred.

Iron

Jennifer, Fred,

Thanks a lot!

Every day the class is more interesting.

I see you tomorrow.........hoping

Iron

Thank you Fred, Jennifer, DigiKey

Iron

Thanks Fred - great sessions!

 

I've used the stuff from Mikro Electronica - you can program your PICS using a version of basic with their compilers

I've got Fred's book "Master and Command C for PIC MCU" and it's great!

Iron

once again, thank you sir fred for a well informative presentation tonight...so, tomorrow again for conclusion of the class session of this week schedule...

thanks also to digikey and madam jennifer to facilitate the session...see you all colleagues tomorrow.

And where can we get Fred's book for free?

Iron

@ccrider

Master and Command C for PIC MCU

Blogger

B4A looks like an eay way to introduce android apps as a new feature, but no project to apply it to yet.

Iron

B4A is interesting

 

Iron

@Fred, will there be a complete list somewhere of everything you need to set this up? I missed days 2 and 3, but have bought the USB controller you mentioned on day 1

 

Thanks Fred, Jennifer, & Digi-Key - This is quite a bag of tricks!

Gold

Just begin my lesson now.

 

Iron

What book can we get for free for mentioning Fred's name?

Iron

Out of curiosity, what compiler do most of you use for PIC programming?

Iron

B4A is impressive.  I've never looked at an Android device before this class.  Bought one and have been creating little working apps this week.  Could NOT have done that with another device.  Great series, by the way - I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

 

Iron

Fred, thank you for another great session

 

Iron

And that's the end of day 4! We want to know: What do you think of B4A so far?

@danlafleur What do you mean?

Thank you Fred, Jennifer and Digi-Key

Gold

thanks you madam jennifer...

Very cool indeed.  Thanks Fred, Jennifer, & Digi-Key!!

Iron

b4a looks godd, easy to use. No device though, so hands-on experience is still TBD.

Iron

Question:  My B4A app on the phone seems to be in Bluetooth mode vs WiFI.  My PC is on the same WiFi subnet as the phone but are you supposed to be able to tell B4A to connect via Wi-Fi?

Iron

Thanks Fred and Jennifer.

Iron

B4A is a solution looking for a problem at the moment.

Iron

presentation is very interesting, but I don't have gadget just used by other colleagues here...

wow, fingers are not working right! CCS c for maintenance only.

Iron

ccs5 with TI is ok for ARM but a bit clumsy for smaller chips

Iron

Almost all of our current products are designed in CCS, we are currently shifting over to the XC PIC family.

Iron

our legacy product f/w was built with CCs c. only use it now for mainenance.

Iron

ok.  I'm simply trying to connect B4A to my phone via WiFi vs Bluetooth but the B4A app on the phone seems bent on connecting via Bluetooth only

Iron

hanen't not used CCS compiler

Iron

I have used CCS at work.  But it has been awhile.

Iron

Hi Derek, not sure I know the answer to your question. Maybe you should ask Fred in the chat!

We've got one of the top guys at CCS writing C code for us.

-but we haven't used it in house

Iron

had trouble with CCS in the past ... compiler liked to use many macros and they weren't consistent with the setting of ports IO and pullup

Iron

Been using CCS PIC compiler since mid 1990's.  Works well & reasonably priced.

Iron

Have not used CCS C compiler

Iron

Didn't used CCS C. Used Microchip C compiler

Iron

I have not used the CCS C compiler

 

Iron

No, we are an ARM shop.

Iron

Have you used the CCS C Compiler to support any of your projects?

Did he cover the PIC stuff yesterday?

Jennifer did you see my question re:  the issue of connecting to my android phone via Wi-Fi?

Iron

what's he planning to connect to on the other end? Did I miss that somewhere?

Anyone have experience with no-ip.org instead of DYN DNS?

Iron

IE is Kaput today,will catch it archived, See Ya!

Iron

My B4A app on the phone seems to be in Bluetooth mode vs WiFI.  My PC is on the same subnet as the phone but are you supposed to be able to tell B4A to connect via Wi-Fi?

Iron

i got it to work on Chrome

Iron

Presumably if you already have a fixed IP you don't need that DynDNS stuff

Again, also try Firefox, working great

Iron

Audio seems to work on Chrome but not IE

Iron

Shoot, he'd run up to slide 5 already-

Gold

Dyndns is useful in the right places

Iron

I have clicked several times on the audio but no audio.  This worked the last 3 days?

 

Iron

@antedeluvian, try to change the browser

Platinum

Try Chrome or Firefox.  Firefox is working great for me

 

Iron

chrome is working ok

 

Iron

greetings and salutations, from Bremen-Germany

 

Iron

Fred is talking to slide 5 not 4.

 

IE is sucking wind with the audio today...  Re-opened the site in Chrome - audio works great.

Iron

click the 'PLAY' arrow again, it'll start-

 

Gold

Audio is crystal clear

Platinum

I have refreshed 6 or 6 times- I get the audio header and then it stops.

Anton, click once or more times on the audio bar.

Iron

No Audio after refreshing as well,unusual

Iron

i have the audio bar, but no audio yet?

 

Iron

Know some about  with DNDNS

Iron

NO audio here either, refreshing page now

 

Iron

Good day everybody...........

Iron

Iron

first time for DYNDNS.  Sounds interesting though.

Iron

have not used DynDns

Iron

don't know about DynDns yet.

Iron

Yes, dynamic DNS is great

 

Iron

@ sgarciav,  No, just streaming on the classroom page

 

Iron

how about the audio files? Can these be downloaded for offline listening?

Iron

Cloudy but cooler Boston signing in

Here we go, we are live!
