ESP32 TFT_espi TFT 3.5"

Hey,
I have bought this TFT Screen some time ago, and used it with an Arduino Uno with the MCUFRIEND library.
Now I want to use the screen with an ESP32.
With the MCUFRIEND Library displaying information works fine. But i want to use the TFT_espi library now, but TFT_print_test example doesn't work.

The wiring is:

TFT_CS 33
TFT_DC 15
TFT_RST 32
TFT_WR 4
TFT_RD 2
TFT_D0 12
TFT_D1 13
TFT_D2 26
TFT_D3 25
TFT_D4 17
TFT_D5 16
TFT_D6 27
TFT_D7 14

and here the config file: User_Setup.h (15.7 KB)

Please post a complete sketch that shows the problem

Here's the sketch:

/*  
 Test the tft.print() viz the libraries embedded write() function

 This sketch used font 2, 4, 7
 
 Make sure all the required fonts are loaded by editing the
 User_Setup.h file in the TFT_eSPI library folder.

#include <SPI.h>

#include <TFT_eSPI.h> // Hardware-specific library

TFT_eSPI tft = TFT_eSPI();       // Invoke custom library

#define TFT_GREY 0x5AEB // New colour


void setup(void) {
  tft.init();
  tft.setRotation(2);
}

void loop() {
  
  // Fill screen with random colour so we can see the effect of printing with and without 
  // a background colour defined
  tft.fillScreen(random(0xFFFF));
  
  // Set "cursor" at top left corner of display (0,0) and select font 2
  // (cursor will move to next line automatically during printing with 'tft.println'
  //  or stay on the line is there is room for the text with tft.print)
  tft.setCursor(0, 0, 2);
  // Set the font colour to be white with a black background, set text size multiplier to 1
  tft.setTextColor(TFT_WHITE,TFT_BLACK);  tft.setTextSize(1);
  // We can now plot text on screen using the "print" class
  tft.println("Hello World!");
  
  // Set the font colour to be yellow with no background, set to font 7
  tft.setTextColor(TFT_YELLOW); tft.setTextFont(7);
  tft.println(1234.56);
  
  // Set the font colour to be red with black background, set to font 4
  tft.setTextColor(TFT_RED,TFT_BLACK);    tft.setTextFont(4);
  tft.println((long)3735928559, HEX); // Should print DEADBEEF

  // Set the font colour to be green with black background, set to font 4
  tft.setTextColor(TFT_GREEN,TFT_BLACK);
  tft.setTextFont(4);
  tft.println("Groop");
  tft.println("I implore thee,");

  // Change to font 2
  tft.setTextFont(2);
  tft.println(F("my foonting turlingdromes.")); // Can store strings in FLASH to save RAM
  tft.println("And hooptiously drangle me");
  tft.println("with crinkly bindlewurdles,");
  // This next line is deliberately made too long for the display width to test
  // automatic text wrapping onto the next line
  tft.println("Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!");
  
  // Test some print formatting functions
  float fnumber = 123.45;
   // Set the font colour to be blue with no background, set to font 4
  tft.setTextColor(TFT_BLUE);    tft.setTextFont(4);
  tft.print("Float = "); tft.println(fnumber);           // Print floating point number
  tft.print("Binary = "); tft.println((int)fnumber, BIN); // Print as integer value in binary
  tft.print("Hexadecimal = "); tft.println((int)fnumber, HEX); // Print as integer number in Hexadecimal
  delay(10000);
}



What exactly does that mean ?
More details please

Which controller ID is reported by MCUFRIEND_kbv ?

TFT_eSPI should work just fine (if not better than MCUFRIEND_kbv).
However it does not support as many controllers.

Your User_Setup.h looks ok. I would comment all of the ESP8266 defines.
You are matching the MCUFRIEND_kbv wiring correctly.

I strongly advise using the library example sketches. Just quote the sketch by its name.
This applies to MCUFRIEND_kbv examples and to TFT_eSPI examples.
And is pretty good advice for any "library" problem.

There is no point in writing "your own" sketches until you have verified the hardware with the library examples.

I get a grey screen which is white at the right side.
The ID is 0x9486
Now it's working, it was the wrong controller

Thank you for help!

Now i wanted to try Touch, but with the "Touch_Controller_Demo" i get this error:

'class TFT_eSPI' has no member named 'setTouch'

Can anyone tell me what am i doing wrong?

Mcufriend shields have a bare resistive panel. There is no dedicated Touch controller chip.

MCUFRIEND_kbv programs work on ESP32.

I have not tried Bodmer's Touch examples with Mcufriend shields. Have you ?

David.

I wanted to, but i get to error from above

But the Adafruit TouchScreen library works for this screen, doesn't?

In the Adafruit Touch library example "touchscreendemoshield" i have to set the pins:

// These are the pins for the shield!
#define YP A1  // must be an analog pin, use "An" notation!
#define XM A2  // must be an analog pin, use "An" notation!
#define YM 7   // can be a digital pin
#define XP 6   // can be a digital pin

Which pins do I have to specify with my wiring?
