You're a funny man Chuck. Nothing like pouring salt on my wounds. :P

I do truly believe that USPS and Canada Post have conspired against me and anything I order from the US. However soon I will have the best of both worlds, my DAQ arriving and my shield base updated. I wonder which will be first ;)

Cheers,
Steve

Got my Go and ShieldBase today :) I was able to update both to the latest firmware posted with minimal effort. My question - from the documentation it sounds like there should now be a VS project template for the Go. I'm not seeing it. Did I miss something? Or do I just create a blank NETMF project and start adding assemblies?

Awesome. Welcome to the Netduino community :)

When you install the Netduino SDK, the new templates should appear in Visual Studio automatically. If you're using a custom installation location for Visual Studio you may need to copy the templates over to the appropriate folder.

Complete newbie and I just received a netduino go starter pack. I have run through some simple projects with the button, pot and rgb led with no problems but I cant figure out how to get the shield base to work. I know its my complete lack of knowledge on this. I downloaded the files in this topic and simply tried to grab the shieldbase.dll to add as a reference. Obviously this didn't work but I don't know where to go from here. I have a src file and a bin file that I downloaded. If someone can give me some step by step pointers I would really appreciate it. David

Chris, I am trying to change rgb led module brightness,  with no success. I see I have to put double value, but I have such a feeling I am not correct with the range

Hi eplaksienko,

 

If I recall correctly, it takes a Double value from 0.0 to 1.0. To set it at 50% you would use 0.5. Hopefully that should get you going. 

 

Cheers,

Steve

Gutworks I tryed, it was obvious if double it's meant under 1, but I don't see any affect in brightness

Can you share your code? "0.0" is zero brightness, "0.5" is half brightness, "1.0" is full brightness, etc. Be sure to use a decimal point in your number... Also, the default color is black. Which has no brightness at all, regardless. Be sure to use .SetColor(...) too if you want to see a color other than black :) Chris

Hello.

Thanks for the little introductory code. It really got me going after some search for any helpful doc on the Go.

 

I have a little complaint though if I may.

 

I just started working with Netduino. I have the Go kit. But it is really hard to find documentation. I worked with MakeController and Arduino and those have great documentation.  I really wish that you create some formal documentation (downloadable PDFs).

 

It is a small complaint not meaning to undermine the product at all. It is an awesome product.

 

Thanks.

Hi Samer_m,

That's really valuable feedback. Let me see what we can do to provide some examples and documentation around the GoBus modules.

Welcome to the Netduino community,

Chris

I'm curious as to what happened to the Wiki.  I had a person accidentally rip apart a piece of equipment I put together with a Netduino Go and completely trashed everything.  Needing to go back to ground zero and since it relied on the shieldbase, it's dead in the water unless I directly use some pins for the GPIO I need.
