Hello all! I am looking for some help. I have been studying different codes, libraries, and other peoples projects. I would really like to learn more about using the MAX72xx chip to drive LED matrixes. I have been working with the MD_MAX72xx and MD_PAROLA libraries. I don’t know enough about code to figure out how to get what I need to make this project work. I would like to learn more about it.
The project I am trying to assemble is a display for a desk. I would like it to print the persons name, then position, display date and time, then temp. For fun I would like to add “lunch time” at noon “go home” at 3:30 and do something with the temp. Maybe a when it’s hot. I have 8 fc-16 matrixs ds1302 rtc and am2302 temp sensor. I am using a Arduino Nano.
I hope I have given enough info to get my point across. What is uint8_t ? I am thinking I should know what that is. I have seen things like that a lot looking at examples. Anyway I’m just looking for some direction so I can learn enough to ask the right questions.
