How do I compare and save data from bluetooth?

Hi I have been stuck on this for a couple of days. I want to compare incoming data to already stored data and if it is different, update the database and then display the saved data.
The blocks I have work fine for one piece of data but as soon as I add another it breaks somehow.

I believe it is something to do with the clock timer, because the value will stay on screen if it's just one piece of data but as soon as I add another it only stays on the screen for the period I have set the timer.

I can receive and display data from arduino no problems, just comparing and saving giving me problems


try moving the block (call Update_All_Values​​3) inside Compare_to_Database3
For Example :

if Temp_RPM ≠ global RPM
[call Database .StoreValue]
[call Update_All_Values​​3]

That works for the one value but as soon as I call compare_to_database in the second if/then it's the same problem. I also tried moving the compare_to_database outside the if/thens that replace the text and outside the receive bytes but that returns nothing.

do you mean you just got value from RPM and Gain not give you any value?

Yep, just blank in the text field.
If i call compare_to_database in each if/then the text is displayed but only for the length of the timer.
If i change the length of the timer the data is displayed for that length.

Is DelimiteByte = 10 set?

What is the transmitter code like?

Delimiter is 10.
Thanks for making me look at the code again though, I was using \n to separate the values but that being the delimiter was causing the problem I believe.

I've changed the code and app and this seems to be working.

Code: (this obviously isn't my whole code, just the sending part)

The character i send before the value is just an identifier.

Here are the app blocks, short version, have tested these with 5 values so far.

Next question, is it best practice to clear globals and tags in database before replacing them or can I just write directly over them?

Thanks for the help

Another idea would be to save time, RPM and Gain.

BTW, about println()

print("one"); ------> one

println("one"); ------> one\r\n

println(); ------> \r\n

print("\n"); -----> one\n

\n is 10 in ASCII hex.

Been working all day so my brain is a bit fried.
What your saying is the \n is redundant if I'm using println?

println("\n") -----> \n\r\n


// BTserial.println("\n");

I assume that your BTserial works the same as Serial.

If you decide to save your data in a list for graphing it over time, see

Ah I see, thanks. Yep that's just the name i gave to the software serial on the arduino.

Thanks, will keep that in mind for future. Mostly just saving the values now so they persist each time the app starts
