If you are using pins 19 or 20. Then no interrupt

Please show your code. More people help

This is a code snippet

  1. include "mbed.h"


InterruptIn lightning(p25);


int main() {



The lightning.rise(... statement is like the example in the InterruptIn section of the Handbook. When I compile the example code, there are NO errors. There is also only one prototype shown when I mouse over the rise function. In my code, there are seven prototypes for the rise function.

I also want to disable interrupts, but find no instructions to do that (so far).

Forgot the short interrupt handler:

int strike(void) { lightning.disable_irq();

int strike_flag = 1;


return strike_flag; }

You are probably using the rise function with the wrong arguments.
