  • Issues about new µOLED-160-G2 display

    Hi,
    I have experience using µOLED-160-G1, and I use them sending command by serial connection (GOLDELOX-SGC) from my PCB boards.

    Now I have bought some µOLED-160-G2 displays, and I have installed the last Workshop4 ver 4.0.2.16,
    I also have installed the last version of uOLED-160-G2-R24.PmmC. (31?, January, ?2013)

    and now I want to get ready them for using through a serial connection, but I have some problems:

    I have tried to load PE in a µOLED-160-G2 display, but Workshop4 tools answered: "Display model not supported by SPE". So, what is the way to get ready my G2 display for using it by a serial connection?

    Do I have to load the same old PmmC file I was using till now, in µOLED-160-G1 version, in order to be able to "plug & play" this new displays G2 in my pcb board?

    Is there any guide to migrate my applications, from using G1 version to G2 version?

    Where is the tool to change the screen saver? ( Is application DISP deprecated, and there is not an alternative?).

    Thanks in advance,

    Valentin

    Both the µOLED-160-G1 and µOLED-160-G2 should load SPE (Serial) without any issues.

    The differences between the µOLED-160-G1 and µOLED-160-G2 are mostly related to hardware and mounting, there are no software differences

    You can modify the splash screen by changing the code in C:\Users\Public\Documents\4D Labs\4DUpdates\Utils\yourmodulename.inc and reload SPE.

    IF you still cannot load the SPE into the -G2 let us know what the status display on the comms tab says.

      Thanks,

      I have founf the .inc file suitable for my display. But I do not know what is the program to edit (or use) it.

        In common, tab it say:
        uOLED160-G2 [v2.4]

        and in the screen, in green letters over dark background, it say:
        uOLED160-G2
        160x128
        v2.4

          Any standard text editor will work, it's just a piece of 4DGL code that produces the splash

          uOLED160-G2 [v2.4]
          That would mean the splash screen is in uoled-160-g2.inc and since you say you've found that it doesn't make sense why workshop would say 'Display model not supported....'

          Can you try again?

            I tested it again, but did not work.

            I also tested to load old PmmC file for G1 model and, that way, screen works fine with my PCB boards, but I would like to upgrade my products to your new G2 version....

            I have attached some pictures about the failed process of loading SPE software.

            Thanks,

              Can you load the SPE onto the G1 display?

              Can you zip up and attach your
              C:\Program Files\4D Labs\4D Workshop 4 IDE\SYSTEM.CFG
              file?

              Also can you paste an explorer view of
              C:\Users\Public\Documents\4D Labs\4DUpdates\Utils\uOLED-160-G2.inc
              ?

                I have attached files.

                no, I could not load SPE in the G1 model, neither. Attached files SYSTEM.zip (2.2 KB) uoled-160-g2.zip (373 B)

                  I guess this is looking like the key to it

                  Can you bring up the MSDOS prompt and type

                  dir "c:\users\public\4d labs" /s

                  And paste the results here?

                        That doesn't look right, there's far too much information there, I'm just interested in the directory structure. If I enter the command I asked you to I just get

                        C:\>dir "c:\users\public\4d labs" /s
                        Volume in drive C has no label.
                        Volume Serial Number is 26F0-A967

                        Directory of c:\users\public\Documents

                          I am working in Windows 8, and I did it again (exactly your command) and obtained a lot of information, so I also attached a view of the explorer of files.

                              This is weird.

                              Have you got a folder called
                              C:\Users\Public\Documents\4D Labs
                              ?

                              If not, what is the path to where you are finding

                              uOLED-160-G2.inc

                              ?
