The files were downloaded individually and the directories were created the properly. I did not restart the Arduino IDE. After a restart the strandtest seems to be working correctly. Thank you for the troubleshooting steps!
You wrote that the older pixels have the red and green pixels swapped. I have the Flora NeoPixels v2 (that arrived in April 2013) but it seems I need to specify NEO_GRB
for the "Color" to be created correctly.
- Code: Select all
Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel(4, 6, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ400);
Does this mean the pixels I have have red and green "backwards"? I would have expected to use the NEO_RGB with the version 2 NeoPixels, but when constant NEO_RGB is used strip.Color(255, 0, 0) is green and strip.Color(0, 255, 0); is red.
Thanks for the troubleshooting steps I learned how to properly load the library.
