Hello every1....i need a little help i m new in programming and coding so i need a code for scrolling text on a 8x8 led matrix using Max7219 and a arduino board i hav several codes for displaying text but i need the code for scrolling text if any1 know it plz post here thanks i m using the following circuit:

Here's a clue: The difference between displaying text on a LED matrix and scrolling text on a LED matrix is the text.

Show this scrolling by...
how this scrolling by...S
ow this scrolling by...Sh
w this scrolling by...Show
this scrolling by...Show
this scrolling by...Show t

Figure out what text you want to display.
Display that text. Wait some period of time.
Alter the text.
Display that text. Wait some period of time.
Alter the text.
Display that text. Wait some period of time.
Alter the text.
Display that text. Wait some period of time.
Alter the text.
<repeat as often as desired/required>

thx a lot its working the code becomes long but its works just fine thanks once again...

The code should not become all that long, unless it was long to begin with. Altering the code to display shouldn't take but about 5 lines of code. Displaying the new text in a loop, in which you alter the code, should be simple.

Post the code you came up with, if you are using a loop. Otherwise, try using one.

anyone pls help me..during compilation an error may occur 1."byte" does not name a type 2.byte has not been declared 3.boolean has not been declared...............am also impoted the arduino library.led control.h

AWOL

Make sure you've included "Arduino.h".
