Blynk Board and Arduino IDE Error

Post by stanleytpig » Sat Jun 09, 2018 10:32 am

Hello, first post here. I have a new Sparkfun Blynk Board and have successfully completed all projects on the "Blynk Board Project Guide". I have moved on to the "Blynk Board Arduino Development Guide" and have successfully gotten through everything up to uploading the tutorial script provided in the Guide.
I get the following error: sketch_jun09a:14: error: 'Adafruit_NeoPixel' does not name a type.
Error is associated with this line of code: Adafruit_NeoPixel rgb = Adafruit_NeoPixel(1, WS2812_PIN, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ800);

The first line of the larger string is: Arduino: 1.8.2 (Windows 10), Board: "SparkFun Blynk Board, 80 MHz, Serial, 921600, 4M (1M SPIFFS)"

I can see the board, but I am stuck with the Adafruit_NeoPixel error.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
thanks - Skip
