Post subject:  Help: function nxtDisplayString

hello,

I'm using RobotC 1.05, with firmware 7.15.

Why cant the following code works?

int i = 0;
nxtDisplayString (i, "Some text");

I want to display an arrow on nxt screen when user navigate through a list of selection. Something like:

Choose color:
Red
-> Blue
Yellow

I want to exploit the function nxtDisplayString() on the fact that I only need to replace the first few characters (with blanks as the user move away from a selection, and '->' when user move to a selection).

Thanks.

I recommend you upgrade to ROBOTC for Mindstorms 1.10, which is currently available on the website. This is a free upgrade and has greater string/display capabilities than 1.05 has.

Your code doesn't seem to work in 1.10 because it's expected a type "compileConst short" for the variable, whereas you declared a type "int".

This is a bug and I'll take a look at making the DisplayString take an int as well... but in the meantime you can try this:

Code:
 task main()
{
   compileConst short i = 0;
   nxtDisplayString(i, "Some text");
   wait1Msec(1000);  //so we can see the text on the screen
}
