  • Several fonts

    I'm using the uLCD32032P1 and want to use several specific fonts.
    the Font Tool is usefull to defines such font, but is it possible to save and use on the SD Card several fonts.
    thanks for answer.

    Hi thevilo, no - you cant load fonts from uSD. One possibility which would allow you to have unlimited fonts is to make your own graphic images for letters and numbers, and save as multiple bitmaps (like a movie) , then you can make a simple function to use media_VideoFrame to 'print' the text.

        Not a simple process I'm sorry to say, but the final results are excellent. What you would need to do is gather your required clip art from one of the free websites out there (eg http://rats2u.com/clipart/alphabet/clipart_alphabet1.htm may be of some use), or create your own fonts in paintshop etc, you would then need to compose those images into an animated gif using an animated gif composer tool, then feed the animated gif to the 4D Graphics Composer to create the required GCI file.
        Here is another really great resource for fonts http://www.algonet.se/~guld1/freefont.htm
