# Case of use

The ArduinoPushButtonControl class allow you to send and repeat an X-Plane command when a push button plugged into Arduino board is pressed.

# Code sample

#include "src/RomgereCockpit/Application/CockpitMainApplication.h"
#include "src/RomgereCockpit/CommunicationInterface/EthernetInterface.h"
#include "src/RomgereCockpit/ArduinoControl/ArduinoPushButtonControl.h"

CockpitMainApplication  *cockpitApp;
EthernetInterface       *ethernetInterface;

void setup() {
  ethernetInterface = new EthernetInterface( ... );
  cockpitApp = new CockpitMainApplication(ethernetInterface);

  //Declare and bind control with command
    new ArduinoPushButtonControl(8), //Create push button on PIN 8
    new XPlaneSimpleCommand("sim/annunciator/test_all_annunciators") //Send "Test all annunciators" command to X-Plane

void loop() {

# Options (constructor parameters)

Here is the definition of the ArduinoPushButtonControl constructor :

Multi arduino board OFF : ArduinoPushButtonControl( uint8_t pin, uint8_t defaultState = LOW);

Multi arduino board ON : ArduinoPushButtonControl( uint8_t pin, uint8_t defaultState = LOW , int boardAddress = -1 );

Arguments definition :

  1. uint8_t pin : PIN n° on which Toggle switch is plug.
  2. uint8_t defaultState (default: LOW) : Default state of the PIN (Idle state). Command will be send when PIN state is different of this value.
  3. int boardAddress (default: -1) : Address of slave board on which xxxx is plug (-1 = plug on main board). Available only if you previously enable the "multi board mode"
