Presenting ASCII string on display
« on: January 17, 2014, 03:08:25 PM »
Hi there.

To make it easier for you GUIDE fans out there we have put together a little application example that takes an array of ASCII character codes and presents them on one or more lines on a display. It is designed for DP250, but can easily be expanded for DP6xx as well.
It also comes with a scroll function for cases when the text covers more lines than will fit on the display.

This code is to be seen as a start point example for the users to develop their own implementation and we hope you find it useful.


Best regards

Hello Daniel,

Do you know the possibility to show more than one character in a screen?
Like a value:"%c%c%c%c....%c%c"
I am not sure, but I think it is possible to display a string of maximum 24 characters.
Each of the 24 characters you can give a data like: chr0, chr1, chr2,....
I can send you an example, if you want me to explain this more exactly.

Bye,
Bernd
