What kind of tutorial? basic or asm? I know of one that you can put on your calc for basic its runs under ion.

I am a pretty good programmer. (but that's just my opinion) Applications for the TI-83 are written in Flash(a programming language). I suggest(If you have codewarrioir since it will open some of them in there(it opens mirage os for one)) that you disect applications and learn how to program the way I did! I wish you lots of luck!

Uh..."flash" is the type of memory used in all the TI calcs except the 86, 85, 82, 81, and 80 for the "archive".

Yes, flash is the type of memory that it uses, but it is also the name of a programming language, most commonly seen in online games

Cybur Netiks, DarkPhantom, and bruno faria, you all need to quit trying to sound like you're intelligent here. You're just going to confuse the guy. Let's get a few things straight:
1. Flash is NOT a programming language on the calculator OR on the Internet. ActionScript is a SCRIPTING language that powers the Internet flash, and Assembly is the ASSEMBLY language which is STORED on Flash memory. Man, you guys were wrong on so many levels there it scares me.
2. Even if it was a programming language, bruno, Flash is not 'competing' with C++. That is dumb. If you're referring to the Assembly code stored on Flash memory on the calculator as competing, then you're way off because C++ is BUILT FROM ASSEMBLY. On the other hand, if you're referring to ActionScript then you're just as far off, just in the other direction. ActionScript doesn't even exist outside the context of Macromedia Flash and as everything about that is built with C++, and Macromedia have made ABSOLUTELY NO ATTEMPT to make use of it outside Flash, I think we can discard your comment. Of course, I can never be sure what you did mean because your English is so terrible.

AndyCogen, there is a very good tutorial called 'AppBuilder' around on the TI site, see if you can find it. If not, ask me.

It is not such a good idea to criticise someone else's use of English when your own use is less than ideal. Your sentance beginning "Even if it was a programming language, bruno ..." should read: "Even if it were a programming language, Bruno ..."

If the user's name is not capitalized, why should he do it for him? The name is "bruno faria", and so it remained in his post.

It was not the capitalization that he was correcting. He changed: "Even if it was a programming language" to "Even if it were a programming language" (was -> were) because it is a hypothetical situation, and thus takes the subjunctive.

i actually have a question, but i don't know where to put it so i put it here :P

on the TI 84+ SE, there's a program called Start-Up that helps you customize what shows up when u turn on your calculator. it can either show a pic, run a program, or run an app automatically when you press ON.

since there's people who take my calculator to play games on without my permission, i wrote a program that prompts the user for a password. if correct, the program terminates, and everything returns to normal. however, if the password is wrong, my program automatically turns off the calculator. (of course, you can just BREAK by pressing ON, but they don't know that:P)

my program works, and i'm trying to get it to run on Start-Up, so it asks for the password everytime the calc is turned on. however, it never works for me, and whenever i turn on the calculator w/ my program enabled, lines of gibberish appears, and im sure my program is correct. how do you solve this problem? HELP!!

Re: Re: Re: Re:

if you're running omnicalc uninstall it before turning your calc off. The hooks omnicalc uses interferes with the startup app

(Btw download Onblock (asm) from the archives so you can call it from your password prgm)

For BASIC programmers: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :
in case anyone wanted to know (you probably don't) ASCII graphics aren't very good, but there are programs that give you access to TI-OS special characters, and if you choose good characters, the graphics will look a lot better. Instead of using X for walls, where there are mountains, you could put
'^' or something. just an example, though '^' isn't really a special character. You get the idea.

I posted a program called Password (or something like that). It comes with that app. Just transfer it to your calc. Oh, and if you want to be able to change your password, read its description.

hey boy calculator can not be programed in flash since there are no included for the z80 that support flash for now , and yah the flash is another programming language that have been compiting with c++ but are other fact flash is memory almost like rom

Calculator cannot be programmed in flash because flash is not a programming language!

Therefore, it is not competing with C++ either.

Flash Memory is a type of memory-storage chip that the archive and ROM portions of your calculator are stored in. Correct me if I'm wrong: also called EEPROM, electronically erasable programmable read-only memory. Maybe. It stores data in bytes, and the calculator sends that data to it's processor, which makes sense of it.

Assembly translates directly into these bytes which are stored on the flash memory chip.

C++ translates into assembly which translates into those bytes stored on the flash memory chip.

I think.

the ti84 basic language is very simple to learn (ie: from the ti basic wiki online [google it]) and then you can convert the program into an ap with a special computer program available. dont remember the name but search it up.

how do you get symbols such as the omega sign (which looks like a horshoe) and triangles as text that takes up one character ex. ۝ i've seen it in other programs and was wondering

There is a BASIc (yeah!!!) prog that will allow you to use the characters in your progs. its called Text Tools. Basic Misc. prog for TI 83/84 +. there is also a app called CharMap that installs a parser hook and puts the characters in CATALOg. but, the BASIC prog has more characters. Go BASIC!!!!!

APP Programming
Evan Patton  Account Info

TI has an Application Development SDK available online. It comes with the TI-83+ Flash Debugger as well as programs designed for signing applications for use on-calculator. I use this for my app programming, and TI supplies documents that give all the information on headers and OS calls.

I don't have a link for you, but visit the TI store and you should be able to locate it in the Ti-83+ section.

new idea
Albino  Account Info

I just came up with this idea and i do need some help with this. Anyway, I have started a program for the TI 83+, it is called Codedef, also known as Code Definition. In it is a label of [A] Through [Z]. Each letter will have its own label. In each letter it will have each BASIC command, and a simple definition using the "Ouput()" Command.

So the point of this is...if you or someone else is creating a program and forgot how to use a simple command, you can call up the "Codedef" program, and find out how to use that simple command...

I will need help with this I am a programmer, i understand how to use commands, (not every command) but most....I will have a free website up soon if anyone wants to help develop this program...oh yes, and if anyone knows how to archive a program it would be nice, because this program might be a little big...I am not even done developing the menu system and its 318 (bytes or Kbytes?).

Inquit Account Info

What'd sort of program do you want?

1) Search & Retrieve
2) Wandering through 'the database', flicking pages etc.


1) Is very simple thing to do.

Write a block of code that catches input from the user: Input "Search: ",Str0

You can make it more sophisticated by eliminating certain possibilities through a loop; but since you're adressing programmers here - it'd say not neccesary.

Write tons of: If Str0="code" :Output(2,1,"definition"
You'll have 16*7=112 characters of space for each definition, including spaces.

You can store it all inside a loop, meaning that your program will require a ClearHome line at the top.


I could do a write up on that one, but it would get all rather much for a post very quickly.
