I am making a function for one of my devices, my device needs a particular SPI setting. I was hoping to save the current setting of the SPI class into some variable, load in the required setting, do a transfer, and after that load back the old setting.

I know there is an object for the SPISettings, but i dont know how to pull the current settings without me having to create a global variable that keeps track of it.

void sendSPI(){
 SPISettings oldSettings = ??? ;   //save old SPI Settings
 SPISettings mySettings(14000000, MSBFIRST, SPI_MODE0);

 SPI.beginTransaction(mySettings); //load in new SPI Settings

 SPI.beginTransaction(mySettings); //Revert to old SPI Settings
  • What about trying static?

  • @st2000 the problem is i do not know the function for access the current settings

  • every library which uses SPI should start the transaction with the setting for the specific device. so you don't have to restore the settings. what are your other devices?

  • I'm going to assume you know what you want (but this may be a case where there are better ways to do what you want in C++ when considering the problem from a higher level perspective). In your class, write a method that will return ("expose") the desired variables. Then, each time you instantiate your class, call those functions to return the desired values.
