View Full Version : Usercommand macro generator

- 2nd August 2015, 02:03
I was playing first time with USERCOMMAND today.
And there are great extension, but they require a lot of typing if you want to support all variable types.
For usercommand with 1 input variable you need minimum 4 macros(each for bit, byte, word, and constant), if you have 2 inputs in your command, then you need 16.
If you are using long, then 25 macros just for 2 inputs, 3 input 125 macros. And that is too much...
So I created little App in VS2012 to do hard work...
I just finished it and just give it quick test. Should be fine, but use at own risk!
Here is project:
If you want to use just .exe path is "...Archive\UserCommand\bin\Release\UserCommand.exe"
Requires at least .NET Framework 2.0.

I've never used the usercommand stuff myself but have seen, from Darrel and now Richard with his graphical LCD driver, that it can be very useful. Thank you for doing this and for sharing it!

usercommand :- i'm hooked on it now I understand a bit more about proper use of the macros.

if you could have

z = usercmd x, y

I think I would be happy to give xc8 and mikroc the flick .

what you have there pedja089 will save heaps of typing and my inevitably cut and paste mess ups , good job

That would be very nice, but non of picbasic command gave that syntax. So that syntax isn't option. For now, i hope.
But you always can put output variable in your command. And use it that way. As you use every other basic command, like lookup, serin, etc...
And there is new idea for App, to add output variables to usercommand.
