/* Arrays Demonstrates the use of an array to hold pin numbers in order to iterate over the pins in a sequence. Lights multiple LEDs in sequence, then in reverse. Unlike the For Loop tutorial, where the pins have to be contiguous, here the pins can be in any random order. The circuit: * LEDs from pins 2 through 7 to ground created 2006 by David A. Mellis modified 5 Jul 2009 by Tom Igoe This example code is in the public domain. http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Array */ int timer = 100; // The higher the number, the slower the timing. int ledPins[] = { 2, 7, 4, 6, 5, 3 }; // an array of pin numbers to which LEDs are attached int pinCount = 6; // the number of pins (i.e. the length of the array) i void setup() { int thisPin;

Unformatted text preview: // the array elements are numbered from 0 to (pinCount - 1). // use a for loop to initialize each pin as an output: for (int thisPin = 0; thisPin < pinCount; thisPin++) { pinMode(ledPins[thisPin], OUTPUT); } } void loop() { // loop from the lowest pin to the highest: for (int thisPin = 0; thisPin < pinCount; thisPin++) { // turn the pin on: digitalWrite(ledPins[thisPin], HIGH); delay(timer); // turn the pin off: digitalWrite(ledPins[thisPin], LOW); } // loop from the highest pin to the lowest: for (int thisPin = pinCount - 1; thisPin >= 0; thisPin--) { // turn the pin on: digitalWrite(ledPins[thisPin], HIGH); delay(timer); // turn the pin off: digitalWrite(ledPins[thisPin], LOW); } }...
