Recently, I have purchased 2.8" TFT LCD Touch Shield in my home country so I can have a external display shield for my ChipKIT Uno32.
What I have understood, then this display shield should work fine on my ChipKIT Uno32 when the operation voltage set is put to 3.3V according to instructions I have found on Internet (and it does work actually). Then the display shield displays a completely white screen when I run up the whole thing, which is good in the beginning.
The problem I am encountering is that I am not sure about how I can display things on the display shield in general. I want for instance display something like the string "Hello, World!" on it so I can figure out how I can get simple things displayed on that display shield. I maybe want, for example, display a number matrix in near future when I have learned to use this display shield much better.
Does it has to be some specific IDE in order to access the pins for displaying things or is it okay with writing C codes in simple text editors such as Notepad++? I would like to prefer not to work with MPIDE, since I want to work with low level details of the programming.
And another thing: are there any limiations about the support of this display shield for the library on the ChipKIT Uno32 I have to be aware of when I am programming on this display shield?
All responses to my issues will be heavily appreciated. You can also link some useful tutorials that would be helpful for me to understand its functionalities. I hope that I can develop a bigger project on my ChipKIT Uno32 by the help of this display shield.
Thank you to all in advance!
