Post set motor flag
Hi folks!
I'm new on this forum and i'm a newbie with robotC.
I would to make a porting of one of my nxc program but i don't know how to set with robotC some motor's flag. I would to use these nxc specifications

thePower sbyte
theOM byte OUT_MODE_MOTORON+OUT_MODE_BRAKE
theRM byte OUT_REGMODE_IDLE
theRS byte OUT_RUNSTATE_RUNNING
thePorts byte[] OUT_B, OUT_C

[...]

// initialize motors
set thePower, 0
set theUF, UF_UPDATE_SPEED+UF_UPDATE_MODE
setout thePorts, OutputMode, theOM, RegMode, theRM, RunState, theRS, UpdateFlags, theUF, Power, thePower
set theUF, UF_UPDATE_SPEED

[...]

mov thePower, pid // Update motor power
setout thePorts, UpdateFlags, theUF, Power, thePower



How i can do it?

One way to learn about all the different motor commands for RobotC is to double click on Motors in the Code Templates Toolbar which is on the left side of the program. It will bring up a help file with brief descriptions and examples of all the different commands available.

You can double click any of the categories in the Templates window to view their descriptions. If you want a complete list of all the code commands in RobotC, Go to Window in the top menu and select Menu Level / Expert. Turn off RobotC and restart it and a complete list of all commands will be in the Code Templates Toolbar list.

Hope this helps, feel free to come back to ask more questions

The next release of RobotC will have alot of revised help files, but there is no separate manual for RobotC. I strongly sugest using the Help files and the sample programs in conjunction to learn Robot C.

There is a curriculum available to buy but it is in an expensive classroom liscense

I found this site where all the different commands and the sample programs that go with the topic one the same page. Hope this helps
