    I have an arduino leonardo and I would like to make a while loop with a given work boundary inside an infinite loop. Once setup is finished, Arduino calls the loop method over and over again. Typing om ny mobile phone and hard to ser what i write. The pseudo code shown below gives a non blocking delay of ms and this delay is repeatedly triggered. The clever part of the algorithm is that the error accumulator is incremented by 24 every interrupt the division is not performed - that just lets you see the idea. That is millis will start counting from 0 again. Lets just say at the start of this discussion - "Don't Use delay ".

    The timer value stays zero in the while loop, and therefor the while loop never meets the exit criteria. Any advice would be highly appreciated.You can offset the start times of each timer so that they are not all a multiple ofbecause if they are then they will fire more or less at the same time and serial output will be generated, and serial output takes a bit of time thus changing the actual time that subsequent time matches happen.Forum Arduino while loop timer

    I would need millis to start counting when while loop starts running. A millis-timer in a while-loop does not make sense.For example, if you use an unsigned int for startDelaythis will happen after 65sec on an Uno board.

    I understand i have to incorporate a millis function in my while-loop, but im having trouble with understanding how to construct the code.When the error gets bug enough a correction factor is used to adjust the timer value.

    I'm trying to use ethernet shield to host a web server so I can control arduino through the web. I used several pumps to mix liquids together.This sketch is available in SingleShotMillisDelay.

    Using delay() causes your system to be stuck while waiting for the delay Once setup() is finished, Arduino calls the loop() method over and over again.Making a while-loop timeout Using Arduino Programming Questions.

    The delay function is simply a while loop where it there is nothing Arduino – timing – 3. A better approach might be use a timer or stopwatch approach.In the example below, DelayExecution.

    It outputs more than one result since the interrupt timer is asynchronous to the main loop code i.e. you don't.The loop monitor is very similar to the blink example.

    Using delay() causes your system to be stuck while waiting for the delay to expire. This ensures the timer is accurate at the start of the loop().This means, eventually, when the CPU adds one more it variable holding the millis result it will wrap around to 0.

    One other point of interest is what happens to result of millis — delayStart when delayStart is said 4,, and we want a mS delay.

    Note: Arduinos may have a resonator 3 pin instead of a crystal 2 pin and these are not as accurate as crystals.

    They range from 12pF to 33pf - check for the correct capacitor specified by the manufacturer - or just use a couple of 15pF.

    You can then use a digital multimeter with at Hz scale to measure the frequency of the output on the LED pin pin 13 in this case.

    You can use while loops, as long as you know they will execute quickly and not hog the CPU.

    Then it is probably something like this if you simply want to carry on following a timeout.

    Finally the delayStart variable must be an unsigned long.
