Hi

As far as i see things, there are two options:

  1. M2TKLIB http://code.google.com/p/m2tklib/ use the STRLIST element

  2. Liudr's Library http://liudr.wordpress.com/libraries/phi_prompt/

thanx thats really nice

Thanks Oliver. I am working on expanding the phi_prompt library to use all types of inputs including keypads. Please check back soon:)

For menu navigation, if you ever intend to put this in an enclosure, you should take a look at these switches and caps from MEC. You can get them on Digikey and they look great!

How come something this good-looking has not been shared here until today!!! :0 :0 :0

Thanks very much! I'll get a few next time I order from digikey. Will really light up the operating panel with these nice-looking things.

I spent a lot of time on their site last week trying to find the best solution for a through hole switch for my project. I didn't need that kind of control but REALLY liked the concept. I ended up with the lit 5G switch. It has an option for one or two LED's and the RED/GREEN fits for me absolutely perfectly. I was going to use an RGB LED in the enclosure but this makes for a much cleaner package. I bought about 10 different style caps to see which will work best for me. They have both frosted and transparent in the style I need and I just wasn't sure which I needed. At about $.50 each for the caps it was worth getting them all to try them out.

Sacman,

You gotta share some pics or videos of what you did!
