Thats great for the single push button but i was talking about the three momentary button setup, sorry for the ambiguity
Hmm ... not sure that does what the O.P. wants it to do.
Forgive me if I misunderstand how your circuit works, but won't that simply turn on the next LED in sequence when any switch is closed? I see you have the switches all connected to CP1, so all they do is advance the counter by 1. You could just as well use just one switch, on CP1, to accomplish the same thing, no? Unless I'm missing something.
My circuit turns on a specific LED and turns all others off.
Hmmm ... seems like kind of a bizarre way to skin this particular cat, but if it works, hey, that's good.
I still don't get how the switches both enable the clock and stop the clock, but if you say it works, I'll take your word for it.
Of course, you also need a 10kHz source, but I suppose a 555 would do this nicely.
