Caution

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's software or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.

## Getting Started¶

### Play With Arduino¶

Note

1 Please plug the USB cable gently, otherwise you may damage the port. Please use the USB cable with 4 wires inside, the 2 wires cable can't transfer data. If you are not sure about the wire you have, you can click here to buy

2 Each Grove module comes with a Grove cable when you buy. In case you lose the Grove cable, you can click here to buy.

• Step 1. Connect the Grove - 6-Position DIP Switch to the I2C port of the Base Shield.

• Step 2. Plug Grove - Base Shield into Seeeduino.

• Step 3. Connect Seeeduino to PC via a USB cable.

Note

If we don't have Grove Base Shield, We also can directly connect this module to Seeeduino as below.

#### Software¶

Attention

If this is the first time you work with Arduino, we strongly recommend you to see Getting Started with Arduino before the start.

• Step 2. Refer to How to install library to install library for Arduino.

• Step 3. Restart the Arduino IDE. Open example via the path: File → Examples → Grove Multi Switch Library → Grove_Switch_Events.

Or, you can just click the icon in upper right corner of the code block to copy the following code into a new sketch in the Arduino IDE.

"HIGH ": "LOW "); if (PID_VAL(mswitch->getDevID()) == PID_5_WAY_TACTILE_SWITCH) { Serial.print((evt->button[i] & GroveMultiSwitch::BTN_EV_RAW_STATUS)? "RELEASED ": "PRESSED "); } else if (PID_VAL(mswitch->getDevID()) == PID_6_POS_DIP_SWITCH) { Serial.print((evt->button[i] & GroveMultiSwitch::BTN_EV_RAW_STATUS)?

• Step 5. Open the Serial Monitor of Arduino IDE by click Tool-> Serial Monitor. Or tap the Ctrl+Shift+M key at the same time. Set the baud rate to 115200.

Success

If every thing goes well, you will get the result. For instance, the default switch is off-High, when you turn the Switch6 to ON, the output will be POS 6: RAW - LOW ON.
