@scoobydrvr

The shield uses Digital 2-6, so all the analog pins are free for you to use smiley

Hi Dobe

As far as I know there is way to read the state of a pixel.

The only way I can think of to make a flood-fill function is to keep a "screen-buffer" in memory, but as the buffer alone would require 32KB of ram this is not an option.

Hello.

I have made a library for RGB GLCD's based on the LDS183 controller.
This is the display that is used on the RGB LCD Shield by NKC Electronics.

You can download the library from my website: http://www.henningkarlsen.com/electronics/a_l_rgb_glcd.php

Please bear in mind that this is my first go at making a library for the Arduino, so it might not be as good as it can be.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Regards
Henning

I have made a How-To on how you can make your own font.

You can find it on my web-site: http://www.henningkarlsen.com/electronics/a_h_itdb02_fonts_101.php

Sorry it took so long, but it is rather hard to type with an injured arm  smiley-sad

@blueburr22

I will try write some instructions on how to make a new font, but it might take a while. I am quite busy at the moment.

If you need a font-width between 8 and 16 pixels you will have to not only rewrite the print functions, but deal with byte alignment (or waste a lot of memory). Font widths that are not a multiple of 8 adds a lot of complexity to the functions. That is the main reason I used 16x16 for the large font.

I can't see why it would be an improvment to make a serial interface to these displays. It would only slow down transfer even further. The speed is not limited by the display, but by the ATmegas ability to push data to the display.

That being said, I have been toying with an idea to make a hardware accelerator for the displays  :o
It is still in the idea-stage, so don't get you hopes up...

@blueblur22

I am glad you like my library.

The small font was taken directly from the library made by ITead, so I do not know how it was made.

When making the large font I did actually calculate all the values manually smiley

Due to the limited memory on the Arduino, I would not recommend adding another font, but feel free to replace the exitsting ones.
If you require other sizes than 8x12 or 16x16 you will have to make alteration to the print-functions as well.

If you need help with the format of the files/arrays, please let me know.

I just re-read the product pages at ITead, and the way I understand it is that all the modules support a SST25VF016B Flash-chip, but you supply it and solder it on yourself.

I have ordered some samples from Microchip, so maybe there will be support for them in the future  smiley-wink

The text on my website is based on the product description at ITead, but I feel that their description is a bit unclear regarding the flash memory.

I am working on support for the SD as well, but it is a long way away from being finished. My libraries does not stop you from using SD or flash in any way, so you still can use other libraries.

I am not sure if my modules even has flash on them  :-?
