API

Functions that return multiple values return them in an associative array.

Basic Functions

class BrickletDualButtonV2(string $uid, IPConnection $ipcon)

Creates an object with the unique device ID $uid:

<?php   $dual_button_v2 = new BrickletDualButtonV2('YOUR_DEVICE_UID', $ipcon);   ?>

This object can then be used after the IP Connection is connected (see examples above).

void BrickletDualButtonV2::setLEDState(int $led_l, int $led_r)

Sets the state of the LEDs. Possible states are:

  • 0 = AutoToggleOn: Enables auto toggle with initially enabled LED.
  • 1 = AutoToggleOff: Activates auto toggle with initially disabled LED.
  • 2 = On: Enables LED (auto toggle is disabled).
  • 3 = Off: Disables LED (auto toggle is disabled).

In auto toggle mode the LED is toggled automatically at each press of a button.

If you just want to set one of the LEDs and don't know the current state of the other LED, you can get the state with getLEDState() or you can use setSelectedLEDState().

The default value is (1, 1).

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_ON = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_OFF = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_ON = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_OFF = 3
array BrickletDualButtonV2::getLEDState()

Returns the current state of the LEDs, as set by setLEDState().

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_ON = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_OFF = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_ON = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_OFF = 3

The returned array has the keys led_l and led_r.

array BrickletDualButtonV2::getButtonState()

Returns the current state for both buttons. Possible states are:

  • 0 = pressed
  • 1 = released

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BUTTON_STATE_PRESSED = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BUTTON_STATE_RELEASED = 1

The returned array has the keys button_l and button_r.

Advanced Functions

void BrickletDualButtonV2::setSelectedLEDState(int $led, int $state)

Sets the state of the selected LED (0 or 1).

The other LED remains untouched.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_LEFT = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_RIGHT = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_ON = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_OFF = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_ON = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_OFF = 3
array BrickletDualButtonV2::getAPIVersion()

Returns the version of the API definition (major, minor, revision) implemented by this API bindings. This is neither the release version of this API bindings nor does it tell you anything about the represented Brick or Bricklet.

bool BrickletDualButtonV2::getResponseExpected(int $function_id)

Returns the response expected flag for the function specified by the function ID parameter. It is true if the function is expected to send a response, false otherwise.

For getter functions this is enabled by default and cannot be disabled, because those functions will always send a response. For callback configuration functions it is enabled by default too, but can be disabled by setResponseExpected(). For setter functions it is disabled by default and can be enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

See setResponseExpected() for the list of function ID constants available for this function.

void BrickletDualButtonV2::setResponseExpected(int $function_id, bool $response_expected)

Changes the response expected flag of the function specified by the function ID parameter. This flag can only be changed for setter (default value: false) and callback configuration functions (default value: true). For getter functions it is always enabled.

Enabling the response expected flag for a setter function allows to detect timeouts and other error conditions calls of this setter as well. The device will then send a response for this purpose. If this flag is disabled for a setter function then no response is send and errors are silently ignored, because they cannot be detected.

The following function ID constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_SET_LED_STATE = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_SET_SELECTED_LED_STATE = 5
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_SET_STATE_CHANGED_CALLBACK_CONFIGURATION = 6
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_SET_WRITE_FIRMWARE_POINTER = 237
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_SET_STATUS_LED_CONFIG = 239
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_RESET = 243
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::FUNCTION_WRITE_UID = 248
void BrickletDualButtonV2::setResponseExpectedAll(bool $response_expected)

Changes the response expected flag for all setter and callback configuration functions of this device at once.

array BrickletDualButtonV2::getSPITFPErrorCount()

Returns the error count for the communication between Brick and Bricklet.

The errors are divided into

  • ACK checksum errors,
  • message checksum errors,
  • framing errors and
  • overflow errors.

The errors counts are for errors that occur on the Bricklet side. All Bricks have a similar function that returns the errors on the Brick side.

The returned array has the keys error_count_ack_checksum, error_count_message_checksum, error_count_frame and error_count_overflow.

int BrickletDualButtonV2::setBootloaderMode(int $mode)

Sets the bootloader mode and returns the status after the requested mode change was instigated.

You can change from bootloader mode to firmware mode and vice versa. A change from bootloader mode to firmware mode will only take place if the entry function, device identifier and CRC are present and correct.

This function is used by Brick Viewer during flashing. It should not be necessary to call it in a normal user program.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_BOOTLOADER = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_FIRMWARE = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_BOOTLOADER_WAIT_FOR_REBOOT = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_FIRMWARE_WAIT_FOR_REBOOT = 3
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_FIRMWARE_WAIT_FOR_ERASE_AND_REBOOT = 4
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_STATUS_OK = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_STATUS_INVALID_MODE = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_STATUS_NO_CHANGE = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_STATUS_ENTRY_FUNCTION_NOT_PRESENT = 3
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_STATUS_DEVICE_IDENTIFIER_INCORRECT = 4
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_STATUS_CRC_MISMATCH = 5
int BrickletDualButtonV2::getBootloaderMode()

Returns the current bootloader mode, see setBootloaderMode().

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_BOOTLOADER = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_FIRMWARE = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_BOOTLOADER_WAIT_FOR_REBOOT = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_FIRMWARE_WAIT_FOR_REBOOT = 3
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BOOTLOADER_MODE_FIRMWARE_WAIT_FOR_ERASE_AND_REBOOT = 4
void BrickletDualButtonV2::setWriteFirmwarePointer(int $pointer)

Sets the firmware pointer for writeFirmware(). The pointer has to be increased by chunks of size 64. The data is written to flash every 4 chunks (which equals to one page of size 256).

This function is used by Brick Viewer during flashing. It should not be necessary to call it in a normal user program.

int BrickletDualButtonV2::writeFirmware(array $data)

Writes 64 Bytes of firmware at the position as written by setWriteFirmwarePointer() before. The firmware is written to flash every 4 chunks.

You can only write firmware in bootloader mode.

This function is used by Brick Viewer during flashing. It should not be necessary to call it in a normal user program.

void BrickletDualButtonV2::setStatusLEDConfig(int $config)

Sets the status LED configuration. By default the LED shows communication traffic between Brick and Bricklet, it flickers once for every 10 received data packets.

You can also turn the LED permanently on/off or show a heartbeat.

If the Bricklet is in bootloader mode, the LED is will show heartbeat by default.

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_OFF = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_ON = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_HEARTBEAT = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_STATUS = 3
int BrickletDualButtonV2::getStatusLEDConfig()

Returns the configuration as set by setStatusLEDConfig()

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_OFF = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_ON = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_HEARTBEAT = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::STATUS_LED_CONFIG_SHOW_STATUS = 3
int BrickletDualButtonV2::getChipTemperature()

Returns the temperature in °C as measured inside the microcontroller. The value returned is not the ambient temperature!

The temperature is only proportional to the real temperature and it has bad accuracy. Practically it is only useful as an indicator for temperature changes.

void BrickletDualButtonV2::reset()

Calling this function will reset the Bricklet. All configurations will be lost.

After a reset you have to create new device objects, calling functions on the existing ones will result in undefined behavior!

void BrickletDualButtonV2::writeUID(int $uid)

Writes a new UID into flash. If you want to set a new UID you have to decode the Base58 encoded UID string into an integer first.

We recommend that you use Brick Viewer to change the UID.

int BrickletDualButtonV2::readUID()

Returns the current UID as an integer. Encode as Base58 to get the usual string version.

array BrickletDualButtonV2::getIdentity()

Returns the UID, the UID where the Bricklet is connected to, the position, the hardware and firmware version as well as the device identifier.

The position can be 'a', 'b', 'c' or 'd'.

The device identifier numbers can be found here. There is also a constant for the device identifier of this Bricklet.

The returned array has the keys uid, connected_uid, position, hardware_version, firmware_version and device_identifier.

Callback Configuration Functions

void BrickletDualButtonV2::registerCallback(int $callback_id, callable $callback, mixed $user_data=NULL)

Registers the given $function with the given $callback_id. The optional $user_data will be passed as the last parameter to the function.

The available callback IDs with corresponding function signatures are listed below.

void BrickletDualButtonV2::setStateChangedCallbackConfiguration(bool $enabled)

If you enable this callback, the CALLBACK_STATE_CHANGED callback is triggered every time a button is pressed/released

By default this callback is disabled.

bool BrickletDualButtonV2::getStateChangedCallbackConfiguration()

Returns the configuration as set by setStateChangedCallbackConfiguration().

Callbacks

Callbacks can be registered to receive time critical or recurring data from the device. The registration is done with the registerCallback() function of the device object. The first parameter is the callback ID and the second parameter the callback function:

<?php

function myCallback($param)
{
    echo $param . "\n";
}

$dual_button_v2->registerCallback(BrickletDualButtonV2::CALLBACK_EXAMPLE, 'myCallback');

?>

The available constants with corresponding function signatures are described below.

Note

Using callbacks for recurring events is always preferred compared to using getters. It will use less USB bandwidth and the latency will be a lot better, since there is no round trip time.

int BrickletDualButtonV2::CALLBACK_STATE_CHANGED
<?php   void callback(int $button_l, int $button_r, int $led_l, int $led_r [, mixed $user_data])   ?>

This callback is called whenever a button is pressed.

Possible states for buttons are:

  • 0 = pressed
  • 1 = released

Possible states for LEDs are:

  • 0 = AutoToggleOn: Auto toggle enabled and LED on.
  • 1 = AutoToggleOff: Auto toggle enabled and LED off.
  • 2 = On: LED on (auto toggle is disabled).
  • 3 = Off: LED off (auto toggle is disabled).

This callback can be enabled with setStateChangedCallbackConfiguration().

The following constants are available for this function:

  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BUTTON_STATE_PRESSED = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::BUTTON_STATE_RELEASED = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_ON = 0
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_AUTO_TOGGLE_OFF = 1
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_ON = 2
  • BrickletDualButtonV2::LED_STATE_OFF = 3

Constants

int BrickletDualButtonV2::DEVICE_IDENTIFIER

This constant is used to identify a Dual Button Bricklet 2.0.

The getIdentity() function and the CALLBACK_ENUMERATE callback of the IP Connection have a deviceIdentifier parameter to specify the Brick's or Bricklet's type.

string BrickletDualButtonV2::DEVICE_DISPLAY_NAME

This constant represents the human readable name of a Dual Button Bricklet 2.0.
