in the start of the code most of the projects make TRISA OR TRISB INPUT/OUTPUT.but what can we do if we want to make some ports of the A AND B ports as input.i mean not using them like porta are input portb are output .for example using rb0,rb1,ra0,ra1 are input and the others are output? :shock:
 
When you set the TRIS registers you write a value to it. 1 is an input a 0 is an output. So if you want to set RB0-RB3 to input and RB4-RB7 as output, write a 0xF0 to TRISB. and it's that easy

To me is easier to see if you set your TRIS register with binary numbers to see what is what.

Say you want RB7-RB4 all Outputs and RB3-RB0 inputs you can define the like:
Code:
TRISB = %00001111
As they told you before a 0 is an output a 1 is an input. Same thing goes with any other register. You must take into account that some PIC that have analog pins come configured from factory to use those pins as analogs and not as your normal digital I/O.... for those it is always good to set them for digital use before hand. Use:
Code:
ADCON1 = 7
To change it from analog mode.

Good Luck
