    Default Graphical user interface

    Hello,
    Does any one knows of a GUI software (easy to use) that will let you build applications for the pic microcontrollers.
    Thanks

    Hi bruce,
    Maybe i didn't explain well but i am looking for a software like "visual basic" that allows me to creat a GUI but maybe easier to deal with. That way i can creat applications for pic using the pc

    Take a look at Liberty Basic. I have done a couple of interactive apps, and it worked fine without some of the visual basic bloat. Plus, it's very inexpensive and has good support.

    Sure, and it's also $700...But thanks for pointing that out. I Am still looking for something modest that interfaces with pics.

    its cost $700 but you can work with microcontroller and lcd directly.with other programs you need also embedded cpu with operating software to work and that cost $1200 the cpu.you have to choose as you do with pbp vs basic stamp .everything is depend of what you won to do.

    I am sure interested, but i haven't bought the software yet. Have you done any projects with the pic. I am interested in VB codes where the user can program the pic through the GUI on the pc. Rather than writing the actual code.
    How much did you pay for yours.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    look what I posted "Alarm contact" here you can see what you can do with
    Visual Basic.
    All the Information send the Pic Controller to the PC and the Visual Basic Software show the data.
    Bye Pesti.

    Are you saying that you want software that can generate a "pic" program?

    and have the the program be created through a means of graphically representing the source code(steps in the program) on a computer (pc)?


    something similar to ladder logic development?

    if you aswer all that then the answer is no. i think. there could be "ladder logic to pic" software out there.

    you can however, easily update variables in a pic program through a visual basic program running on you pc through a serial link.

    rocky,

    there are many examples out there.
    You should start on the PIC with some code for serial communication.
    For testing something like "HyperTerm" would do on the PC.
    Once everything is working as expected cou can start writing your own "GUI" on the PC using your preferred programming language.

    Here are some Links:

    If you do some searching you'll find many others.
    regards

    Ralph
