Re: AW: iMON VFD MiniDisplay driver for MediaPortal 1.1.3
Dude, thanks to you. It just took me a couple mins to test all that. Bet it will take you days to fix all this stuff.[*]Does the display scroll continuously or does it stop scrolling after the text has been displayed for one time?
So i hit send text: Text appears, scrolls and STOPS once it reaches the end. Text stays there but does not loop back to the beggining.
[*]Does the display use a proportational or a fixed font (each character has the same width in a fixed font, in a proportational font character widths are different, e.g. you can display more 'I's than 'O's on the LCD at the same time)?
Funny thing here. It displays the font and size I have set on IMON tool at........
IMON UTILS > FRONTVIEW > COMMON tab
I set a comic sans font there, so it's not a fixed font. I bet there must be a command on the api for you to set an especific fixed font and size, and you will have to send that command whenever you want to change the font.
[*]If the font is fixed: How many characters can be displayed on the LCD?
It depends of the size of the font you used. If you want tell me how many rows x colums you need to fit, and i will search for a fixed font with the desired size.
[*]Does the LCD support other characters than ASCII (like German umlauts, Cyrillic, Chinese, Japanese characters)?
Since it displays TTFs...... It must display them!
Thanks for your support
