Case Structure

Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if it's possible to display an HEX number in the case selector.
I've wired an HEX number to it but I got to put the number in decimal in
the selector. Kinda of not what I want to do but of coursse it still works.
I want it to display the number in HEX.

Thx!

Humm this one is interesting. Yes i know there are work arounds but the case struct doesn't directly let you type in the HEX # in it.
Good suggestion, can be forwarded.

You can format the number in an hexadecimal string (for example %02x) and
input this string to the case selector. Change the cases to "00", "01", etc.

This won't let you do things like "00-09" "0A-0D" "0E..." though, since the
numerical "meaning" is lost.

Hmm,
that one not so simple for ranges...

The correct syntax for string ranges is "00".."09" but remember that the
range spec is upper bound EXCLUSIVE for strings. The range "00".."0F" thus
corresponds to an integer range of 0..14 beacuse "0F" is not part of the
string range. You enter an inclusive range 15 putting the upper bound
explicitely "00".."0F","0F". Otherwise, since "A" is lexically greater than
"9", there is no problem.

Since string selectors support \ codes, another way is to flatten you number
to string and type in your cases as "\00".."\FF" for U8 numbers,
"\00\00".."\FF\FF" for U16 and "\00\00\00\00".."\FF\FF\FF\FF" for U32. The
upper exclusive rules for strings still applies.
