Hi everyone,

I recently got the idea to use my Arduino Uno with a graphical display (GLCD), I browsed the web and found a library wich permitted to control my GLCD wich is controlled by a ST7920 : U8Glib. But when it cames to create Bitmap images in hexadecimal format, I realized that the duty was sooo long using the windows's calc.exe x)

That's why I told myself : "Why wouldn't I create a software to do all the dirty work for me !?". That's the story of how I started developping a software written in C++11 with Qt wich is : BitmapU8GlibCreator

Here are a few screenshots :

Edit : the english version is available

Graphene 1.0 is out !

This version is a complete rewrite of the last version, it has benn renamed to "Graphene".This version does not attempt to add new functionality (except zoom), it aims to ease me adding new function next.

Hi Olivier,
I'm a co-worker of MrPantalon on this project. We are french and we decided that I would take care of the english publication of this software.
Well, first, we're very proud that the creator of the u8glib is interested in our project. That's something we really did not expected smiley-wink
As MrPantalon said, you can use the MediaFire url in the description to link this software to your library.
If you have any idea/suggestion of improvement, we'll be glad to ear about it to make BitmapU8GlibCreator even better smiley
And BTW, thx for that library, it very useful smiley-grin

Hi

I did some more serious tests. Here are some results: setup.exe failed to download. The zip is fine.
Another question is: How do i switch to english? Is the english version available. Your program is still
usable without knowing French (thanks to the icons), but it might still be helpful for those with limited
knowledge on French (unfortunately this includes me).

But then.. it seems to work as it should  smiley

Ok so : the language problem is going to be fixed, it is supposed to be automatic, depending on the default language of your OS ...
About the setup.exe, it works with us so ... We'll re-upload it and hope for the best :p
Finally, we discussed about the improvement and we have some ideas so I think a new version of BitmapU8GlibCreator will soon be available smiley

Thx for the feedback smiley

If I understand your question correctly, you want to know how fonts are defined in u8glib?

U8glib has its own format for fonts. It is compact and partly compressed to allocate as less of flash rom as possible.
All u8glib fonts are derived from the bdf font format (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glyph_Bitmap_Distribution_Format)
A tool (bdf2u8g) can convert a bdf file to the internal format: http://code.google.com/p/u8glib/source/browse/#hg%2Ftools%2Ffont%2Fbdf2u8g. This c file also contains the description of the internal format.

Hope this answers your question.
