BIN2GRAY

Top  Previous  Next

Action

Returns the Gray-code of a variable.

 

 

Syntax

var1 = Bin2gray(var2)

 

 

Remarks

var1

Variable that will be assigned with the Gray code.

var2

A variable that will be converted.

 

Gray code is used for rotary encoders. Bin2gray() works with byte , integer, word and long variables.

The data type of the variable that will be assigned determines if a byte, word or long conversion will be done.

Depending on the data type of the target variable the following routine will be called from mcs.lbx:

_grey2Bin for bytes , _grey2bin2 for integer/word and _grey2bin4 for longs.

'Gray2Bin() converts a gray code into a binary value

 

Dim B As Byte                                             ' could be word,integer or long too
