I am referring to @Erel's posting here:
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/inline-c-c.65714/#post-456033

When compiling the B4R project I get an error due to this line of code:
B4X:
b4r_main::_us = sonar.ping_median(20,500);
B4X:

If I change....
B4X:
b4r_main::_us = sonar.ping_median(20,500);
....to....
B4X:
b4r_main::_us = sonar->ping_median(20,500);
thus, sonar.ping_median replace with sonar->ping_median

....it is working. Can it be because I am maybe making using of a different NewPing Arduino library as what @Erel's sample code is based on?
