Quick Steps

  • Install ezOutput library. See How To
  • Connect Arduino to PC via USB cable
  • Open Arduino IDE, select the right board and port
  • On Arduino IDE, Go to File Examples ezOutput 04.SingleBlinkChangeFrequency example
/* * Created by ArduinoGetStarted.com * * This example code is in the public domain * * Tutorial page: https://arduinogetstarted.com/tutorials/arduino-output-library * * This example blinks an LED: * + with frequency changed according to the state of a button . if button is NOT pressed, blink slowly . if button is pressed, blink fast * + without using delay() function. This is a non-blocking example */ #include <ezOutput.h> // ezOutput library const int BUTTON_PIN = 7; ezOutput led(9); // create ezOutput object that attach to pin 9; void setup() { pinMode(BUTTON_PIN, INPUT_PULLUP); } void loop() { led.loop(); // MUST call the led.loop() function in loop() int buttonState = digitalRead(BUTTON_PIN); if(buttonState == HIGH) // button is not pressed led.blink(500, 500); // 500 milliseconds ON, 500 milliseconds OFF else // button is pressed led.blink(200, 200); // 200 milliseconds ON, 200 milliseconds OFF }
