Distinguishing between a cold boot versus Build & Download?

Hello,

Is there a convenient way to distinguish between a cold startup condition, versus a Build & Download of the project? We have some time related requirements that need to be monitored following a cold startup, but don't want them to be reset upon a Build & Download.

 

Thanks

A global variable (P-variable or CS Q-variable) will maintain a preset value through a “Build and Download”. They are however cleared to zero on a reset.

 

In my Power Clipper I have the following in pp_startup.txt:

Clipper[0].GpioData[0].16 = p999

 

If I set p999=1 just before a “Build and Download” it will set the output. On a “$$$” it does not.

Thanks Steve, I think I can work with something similar.
