Display with new command for Arduino or similar micro.

Post by solozerouno »

I would like to propose for the texts and characters of the displays to be able to choose different sizes / characters, different colors .. That it is a choice for those like me who have Arduino and have memory available to use kb to have a usable display at best ....

Hello,

Flowcode v9 now uses a similar GLCD font system to Arduino. You can set the font colour by calling the SetForegroundColour component macro. The font and size is adjustable from the component properties.

This video may help.

I need to use fonts of different sizes in my project and unfortunately in flowcode 8 it was possible but now with 9 no, before it was more comfortable .....
sure, I could compile with flc 8 but in 8 I don't have all the components that I bought with 9; how can I free myself from this bond .... ?? By the way I use Arduino ...
Thanks Alessandro.
