Setup button and programing in JAVA

Tue Apr 23, 2019 6:00 pm


I make a project where i need to use a button as input. I don't understund why doesn't work it. I link my program and the wiring as well. I use the pull down resistor. If I press the button, nothing happens.

Code: Select all

	 public static void main(String args[]) throws InterruptedException {
	        System.out.println("<--Pi4J--> GPIO Listen Example ... started.");

	        GpioController gpio = GpioFactory.getInstance();
	        GpioPinDigitalInput myButton = gpio.provisionDigitalInputPin(RaspiPin.GPIO_04, PinPullResistance.PULL_DOWN);
	        myButton.addListener(new GpioPinListenerDigital() {

	    		public void handleGpioPinDigitalStateChangeEvent(GpioPinDigitalStateChangeEvent event) {
	    			if (event.getState() == PinState.HIGH) {
	    			} else {
	        System.out.println(" ... complete the GPIO #02 circuit and see the listener feedback here in the console.");

	        while(true) {

I'm not sure what your problem with your circuit is but I would change the way it works to use a pull up on the input pin and then just ground the gpio pin with the button. No resistor needed.
