multi function shield examples

This shield got my attention as it looked like a nice beginners learning type shield with which you could get up and running with an Arduino

Here is a picture of the board, a few code examples are available later on in the article.

Code Examples

********************************************************************

Blinking LED

int led = 13;

void setup()
{
// initialize the digital pin as an output.
pinMode(led, OUTPUT);
}

void loop()
{
digitalWrite(led, HIGH);
delay(1000);
digitalWrite(led, LOW);
delay(1000);
}

********************************************************************

All LEDS blinking

int led1 = 13;
int led2 = 12;
int led3 = 11;
int led4 = 10;

void setup()
{
// initialize the digital pin as an output.
pinMode(led1, OUTPUT);
pinMode(led2, OUTPUT);
pinMode(led3, OUTPUT);
pinMode(led4, OUTPUT);
}

void loop()
{
digitalWrite(led1, HIGH);
digitalWrite(led2, HIGH);
digitalWrite(led3, HIGH);
digitalWrite(led4, HIGH);
delay(1000);
digitalWrite(led1, LOW);
digitalWrite(led2, LOW);
digitalWrite(led3, LOW);
digitalWrite(led4, LOW);
delay(1000);
}

Switches example

const byte LED[] = {13,12,11,10};

#define BUTTON1 A1
#define BUTTON2 A2

void setup()
{
// initialize the digital pin as an output.
/* Set each pin to outputs */

pinMode(LED[2], OUTPUT);
pinMode(LED[3], OUTPUT);
}

void loop()
{
if(!digitalRead(BUTTON1))
{
digitalWrite(LED[0], HIGH);
digitalWrite(LED[1], HIGH);
digitalWrite(LED[2], HIGH);
digitalWrite(LED[3], HIGH);
}
