Hiya. I was just wondering if anybody out there has tried or had success in using a 3.2" TFT touchscreen whilst using another SPI device. I am interested in attempting wireless communication from one arduino board to another MEGA2560 with a 3.2" ITD touchscreen connected using NRF24l01 modules....
I hope you get what I mean,
any help returned with happiness.
Regards,
Steve.

The only requirements should be:
    1) having separate Slave Select pins and
    2) possibly having to re-set the SPI parameters on each use:
Code: [Select]

setBitOrder();
setClockDivider();
setDataMode();

Hiya JohnWasser!. Well it turns out that the 3.2" TFT only seems to use SPI for the SD card functionalities ( which I probably won't be using as I only intend to use graphics & touchscreen ) so I'll see what I can glean from combining the two (UTFT and touch libraries) and NRF24l01 Mirf library functions.:)
I have an idea for a touchscreen wireless MIDI controller. I've just had success with understanding the Honnet Body Air drum code and have modified it to make a 3 pot 1 LDR wireless MIDI controller box. I am slowly getting to grips with how coding works ( Arduino&AVR ).  TFT  is the next step in my exploration.

Thanks for your help. :)
With respect.
