Directsoft 5 Subroutine

Directsoft 5 Subroutine

Directsoft 5 Subroutine


I am programming a subroutine in Directsoft 5. The subroutine scrolls through indicator lights when activated. When coming out of the subroutine, sometimes one of my indicator lights sticks on. It depends on when I flip the switch to come out of the subroutine as to which one of the lights stick on sometimes. I have tried the RSTI command in Directsoft 5 but to no avail. Can anyone help steer me in the right direction? Thanks.

I would have to see you code to render a reply.

RE: Directsoft 5 Subroutine

I'm new to this too, so take this for what it's worth, but remember your sub only runs when it's called EACH cycle. If the the condition that calls the sub is no longer true, then the sub will not run and "clean up" at the end. I think a flag is the way to call the sub. That way you can make sure the sub finishes doing everything you want and then clears the flag.
