Display Processing Speed
« on: February 11, 2014, 07:15:56 PM »
What are some software tips for improving the DP210 display processing speed?   Do fancy fonts eat up more time than basic ones?  Does a bunch of numeric processing ('%d') put the processor on its knees?  Or are numeric values somehow cached so that idle values are effortlessly handled while a rapidly changing value causes all sorts of display-updating effort?  Do multiple overlapping items that are conditionally displayed cause the screen to break a sweat versus a text list?

I have a simple application using a DP210 and an IOX024, and I need to increase the ExecTimeOut to about 100ms in order to get a decent screen response time, but this kills my main application response (even causes IO module timeouts, so those have to be increased as well).
