I don't know why my interrupt handler doesn't work... can anyone of you please help me? ): Below is my code (the highlighted part is my interrupt handler):

}

  }// loop forever 
}

I will be very glad if any of you can help me.... thank you very much...

It would help if you used code-tags so we could actually read your code.

Also: What microcontroller is this? And post a link to it's datasheet, I'm too lazy to search for it myself ;)

The micro-controller that I am using is: DEMO9S08LC60. I/C using for this project is MPR083 which uses IIC.

So how do you know that the handler isn't working? If the answer is: I can't see the LED blink, then that's because the ontime is to small to see with the naked eye.

Does interrupt VectorNumber_Vtpm1ch0 void TPM1C0IRQ() work?

Do your I2C functions work at all? Did you test them?

Put a counter on the interrupt and pre-clear, then after a short while, examine the counter and see if it is non zero!

You mean like the uctestcnt++; he put in the interrupt-handler? ;)

Emm.. I tested it out by seeing the LED on and off. Basically i used a oscilloscope to see the waveform... and through that testing i know my IRQ handler is not working. Hence, i am wondering if any of you can help me... ))):


Yes, the TPM handler can work but not the IRQ handler.

I'm not familiar with that particular chip, but it appears you are enabling your interrupts so...

You make mention of seeing the waveform. Are you looking at both the incoming waveform and on another trace watching the output pin driving/sinking the LED? That on/off time of the LED is extremely short!

Emm.. I tested it out by seeing the LED on and off.

As I mentioned, this won't do. It will go so insanely fast that you would even have a hard time seeing it on scope.

Now I don't know what your LED_on and LED_off functions do exactly, but how about replacing the both with a toggle_led function:

OUTPIN ~= OUTPIN;

So when you touch the sensor the led will go 'on', when you touch it again it'll go 'off'. Time enough to get some scope-output.

Off course, I'm not taking contact bouncing into consideration.
