HELP WITH BUTTONS IN MATRIX
The question is how many buttons can I put per column... in my project in simhud cree
two columns and two rows but the number of buttons is complicated, I want 6 buttons, it could be
Everything works for me but not the 6 buttons.
To create a 6-button button box in SimHub, you will need to use a matrix configuration. This means that your buttons will be connected to the Arduino in a grid, with each button connected to two different pins.
The number of buttons you can put per column in a matrix configuration depends on the number of pins you have available on your Arduino. For example, if you have an Arduino Uno with 14 digital pins, you can put up to 7 buttons per column.
However, it is important to note that not all of the digital pins on an Arduino can be used for matrix keypads. Some of the pins are reserved for other purposes, such as the serial port and the LED pins.
To determine how many buttons you can put per column in your project, you will need to consult the pinout diagram for your Arduino. This diagram will show you which pins are available for use and which pins are reserved.
Once you have determined how many buttons you can put per column, you can start wiring your button box. There are many different ways to wire a matrix keypad, but one common method is to use a shift register.
A shift register is an integrated circuit that allows you to control multiple devices with a single pin. This makes it ideal for wiring matrix keypads, as it allows you to connect many buttons to a single Arduino pin.
