Constrains a number to be within a range.


constrain(x, a, b)


x: the number to constrain, all data types
a: the lower end of the range, all data types
b: the upper end of the range, all data types


x: if x is between a and b
a: if x is less than a
b: if x is greater than b

Example Code

sensVal = constrain(sensVal, 10, 150);
// limits range of sensor values to between 10 and 150
