    Home doen't stay available

    When in the editor File, Home, Simulate, and Picaxe are at the top of the screen. Home used to aways be 'open' when in the editor unless some other option was chosen. Now when in the editor File stays highlighted, but not 'open'. I can click on Home to open it, but as soon as I perform an action...

    Input not working correctly

    How do I attach the code file here? Schematic not in electronic form. Pulled up switches attached to B.7 through B.3 and A.3. Solenoid drivers on C.0 through C.7. Limit switches on A.1 and A.2. One second latch on A.0 and B.2. Motor control on B.0 and B.1. Hopefully I figured out how to attach...

    Input not working correctly

    Picaxe 28X2. I am having a problem with switch inputs. The code for one input which works correctly is if pinB.3 = 0 then blay blay endif. The code for the input that does not work is if pinB.6 = 0 then blay blay endif. Both pins are defined as inputs. if I place the mouse over pinB.3 a box...

    debug does not show real data

    symbol ADDR = b2 ADDR = $F8 debug label: if pinA.0 = 1 then goto label endif Pin A.0 is high when program is downloaded. The debug window opens but ADDR is shown as 0 not F8. If I use simulate ADDR shows as F8. How do I get the program to run in real time and show the proper data in the debug...

    Getting a resonator to work on a 28X2

    I have a picaxe 28X2 that is programmed. It runs the same speed with/without a 64 Mhz resonator. Using an oscilloscope I see no activity on either resonator pin other than 60 Hz hum.

    How do I access bits

    I need to determine if bits of a byte are high or low. So I have symbol ADDR = b2. I can't use ADDR.bit7, and I have tried various commands such as if ADDR & this, also if ADDR AND this, where this is a variable or DCDn. I can't seem to use any variation of if ADDR & or if ADDR AND as I get a...

    Are there arrays

    I am planning to use an X2 part. Are single dimentional arrays allowed? I don't see anything in the manual. The syntax checker did not reject the word dim, but would not accept name(n) or name[n].

    28X1 input pins A3 and C3

    I have a picaxe 28X1. I have a keypad connected such that key 1 goes to pin A.3 and key 5 goes to pin C.3. The editor does not let me use pinA.3 only pin3, so I have in my code IF PIN3 = 1 THEN do this and another statement IF PINC.3 =1 THEN do this. When I press 1 on the key pad nothing...

    When the cable was plugged into the PC I did not get a new hardware found window. The Device Manager however does show AXE027 PICAXE USB. I cannot find any executable drivers, all I see are .dll, .sys, .inf, etc.
