Note: I have now corrected the mirror issue in these drivers. I simply copied a set of parameters that I knew would display in the correct orientation  To the correct location in the " UTFT.cpp " file. In my case, the " SSD1963_800_CTE7 "section at line 2331. These parameters are for the 7" CTE display. So far everything displays and functions correctly.

In my case the parameters were obtained from a set of CTE drivers offered from " ageurtse ", a member of this form, thank you for your assistance.

I hope this will help someone else.

CTE has released an updated driver, that fixed some of the problems we have been having.
Unfortunately the display is still mirrored, although annoying it is a minor inconvenience compared to some of the other problems i was having.

The "UTFT fonts" now display properly using the "UTFT print function" . This has been the main problem I was having. I have only done limited testing, but the results have been good. This means we can format numbers using the " PrintNnumI or the PrintNnumF " statements. It also means we can make our own fonts using the UTFT font converter, or we can do it manually, "kind of a pain". Unfortunately the fonts provided with the displays will still not work with the print statements.

The new drivers are currently available at

These drivers should work with the mega and other compatible shields, but at this point since I do not have any other shields to test it on I cannot say for sure. If anyone contest these drivers on compatible shields please let us know if they work properly.

At least it's a step in the right direction. Being able to use the standard commands is a big plus.

I was able to download the complete drivers. I tested the drivers using both the "default_shield" and  "CTE_shield" switch. I could not find any difference between the two functions, both were displayed the same, "mirrored", and is unreadable.

I am using the CTE DUE shield + CTE 7" display  "CTE70".

What is supposed to be the benefit of using one or the other switches, and how can I tell if it's working properly.

Thank you for your effort, but as of yet I cannot see any benefit to your drivers.

35  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Reverse Coordinates DUE w/ CTE Shield on CTE 3.5" 480x320 R61581 LCD on: April 04, 2013, 03:16:10 pm
I have a similar problem with a 7" display from CTE,  "DUE shield  + CTE70". All the UTFT fonts and coordinates are mirrored.
However the 7" display came with custom fonts on rom and they display correctly. But they do not work with the set font functions. This means that the printnumI in the printnumF does not work or will not be readable if I use the UTFT fonts.
Does anyone else have this problem, And has anyone found a solution.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I am new to the forum and have a problem that may be directly related. I am not a programmer even though I have been doing it as a hobby for many years. mostly machine language and Visual Basic. Although it's been many years since I've done any machine language programming. Very little in C/C++.
I'm using an Arduino due, adapter shield and a 7 inch TFT display. The same display described here.
Generally my display works correctly but with two exceptions. When using the "PrintnNumF" and "PrintnNumI"  function I have to declare the font before I use the function. It gives me an error whenever I use the fonts supplied with the display. I can use the UTFT fonts supplied with the drivers, but the fonts come out mirrored, however the order is correct. The fonts that are supplied with the display work correctly for all other print statements. The UTFT are in the correct order but the individual fonts are mirrored regardless of which print statement I use.

My projects, a "Arduino based DRO" needs to display formatted numbers.  And the UTFT fonts a bit small for the application anyway. I need to know how to use the set font function with the fonts supplied with the display.

Anyone else observed this problem

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
