I'm trying to set up a config and need to add some button presses in. Currently the buttons are transmitted over CAN, Is there a way in which to pull the CAN signals over to the buttons in Toolset?

Thanks

What devices are you using? A little more detail would be great.

Sorry, trying to set this up in Pi Toolset for an ICD Dash, i need to be able to at minimum use a button for alarm acknowledge. I could wire in additional buttons to the dash itself, but i have spare buttons that function just on CAN that i was hoping to be able to utilise.

Have you successfully decoded the buttons from the CAN bus in the dash already? 

When you add the Decode in the streams node you can choose the channel kind. Amongst others you can select it as a digital input.

This then shows as a virtual digital input in the sensor node in Toolset. From here you can assign it as a button if you wish.

Head to the Alarm node, click the spanner, assign this button as your Alarm acknowledgement. 

For example:

Hi, do you need a particular version of Toolset for this? (or am i missing something?)

I'm on v7 (build 3432 beta) and it doesn't have the "Content" column in the CAN streams decode:

This is controlled in the meta version. 

What device are you using and what metadata version?

Just had a play around and found that "Content" is available when you upgrade the ICD metafile to 14.1 (I was looking in a 13.1 file).

Yup, you have answered your own question 🙂 
You can move to 14.3 if you’d like the Dash Display feature in Toolbox 10 to work 😊

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the advice, have been trying to do this on an old version of the Firmware. How do i get a new Metadata file in order to upgrade and try it?

PM me your email address and I can send your newer code, or you can email the Cosworth office and one of the support engineers will supply it to you.
