Measuring temperature with a thermistor 10k

Hi,

I have a thermistor 10k
using 3.3v

i’m testing the sample code of thermistor-library but when I click verify to build bin file I receive this errors:
I don’t understand this errors and can’t find a solution.

full code:

    // Analog pin the thermistor is connected to

    // Voltage divider resistor value

    	// Print temperature in degrees Celsius
    	Serial.print("Celsius: ");
    	Serial.println(Thermistor.getTempC());
    
    	// Wait 1 second
    	delay(1000);
    }

@wgbartley contributed this so he might have some idea :wink:

The error message is quite explicit

You have to provide a bool as parameter for getTemp(), you don’t provide any parameter.


Sure, the sample should run out the box, but some minimum understanding of the matter might be required still.

I wrote that earlier but seems like in the .cpp file there’s a default argument but of course, adding the argument when calling should resolve the issue :wink:

The default parameter needs to be set in the header file in order to be known in the including program.

In a closed source library you would only have the header file and you (the user) wouldn’t know anything about the default parameter either.

PR merged!

Thanks @kennethlimcp!!!

Awesome! @rbbahia, once the new version is reimported to Web IDE, it should work without a default arguement :wink:

Hi,

I tried now bute get this error:

Either you do what @kennethlimcp said, or what I said earlier (before the new version)

It’s exactly the same error as the one I’ve explained above already!
