Topic: How load the image just once? Reuse without loading. (Read 409 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi everyone!

I use Arduino Mega with 5' TFT

(URtouch, UTFT, UTFT_SDRaw)

The 768Kb backgroung image raw file loading for 4,5 sec from SD card.

myFiles.load(0, 0, 800, 480, "blue_wall.raw", 1);

When I push a button for new sub page and call the clrScr() I wont reaload the image and wait 4,5 sec again and again. How can I use again without reload.

Or how can I clear just a layer with fix background?

Thx for the answare.
Sorry my english.

I have never seen a five foot TFT !!

There are 5 inch displays with CPLD.   These can store two whole screens.   And display either one instantly.
The regular 5 inch displays only have memory for a single screen  (the one that is being displayed)




I would like programing an application with 4-5 button and subpage where measure the temperature, PH, TDS.

And the measured values are put to some diagram. Write to the eeprom and read the next day etc.


Think about it.   Let's say that your screen has a portrait of Donald Trump as a background.

You display temperature,  PH,  ... etc with the text and digits written transparently over the background.

When the temperature changes,   you just need to draw a fresh background in the small area occupied by the text.    It is reasonable to store these small areas in SRAM.    Or even on the SD card.

Small areas take less time to draw (and load from SD)
