Compiler Choices in HIDmaker FS 2:
Compiler Choices in HIDmaker 32:
When you’re satisfied with all the descriptor tables, their values, and their comments, you’re ready to generate code for both the peripheral and the PC-side programs. Save your work at this point, and click the “Next ” button. HIDmaker FS will check all of your descriptors (including any new values or whole descriptor tables you have added) at this point, and advise you of any errors or changes you need to make.
When all problems have been resolved, HIDmaker FS will present you with programming language choices. On the left column, choose your favorite PICmicro programming language: PicBasic Pro, Assembler, Hi-Tech C, or C18, to let HIDmaker FS generate the firmware for your USB HID -class peripheral. On the right column, choose your favorite Windows programming language: Visual Basic, Delphi, C++ Builder, or the .NET compilers.
HIDmaker FS will generate code for a PC-side program that automatically knows how to talk to the custom USB HID peripheral device it just generated.
View and Print Your Code
HIDmaker FS shows you the code that it has generated, organized by programming language in the Peripheral Side and Host Side groups. Just click on the tabs to view files in either group, and any particular language in that group.
If you like, you can print out the code that HIDmaker FS has generated for you. You can print out:
a single file, or
all the files generated in the programming language that is currently visible , or
all the generated code files.
If you know what features you want to add to the generated code, you can even edit it right inside HIDmaker FS .
You're Ready to Compile!
Use the PIC language compiler that you already own to compile the USB HID peripheral side code that was generated by HIDmaker FS . Program the hex file produced by your compiler into a device, and install that device into your peripheral circuit board.
Similarly, use the PC-side language compiler that you already own to compile the PC-side application code that HIDmaker FS generated.
Now, you’re ready to test.
Next: Step 7: Test Your Code >>
Quickly make CUSTOM, ready to compile and run USB HID class source code written for YOUR FAVORITE COMPILERS, MATCHED for both PC and PIC device at the same time, that sends data that YOU defined.
Now you can also get an "unfair advantage" over your competitors, with 16-bit and 32-bit USB PIC devices, as well as 8-bit USB PICs, with new HIDmaker 32. Gets your USB HID project running, and communicating YOUR custom data, in as little as 10 minutes! Pays for itself in 1 day !
