  • Help with designing from the display


    I have a question about designing on the display. I've attached a link to you as you can see a Red Green Blue Box. Since the tolerance is displayed. How can I create something. When I do that, you can not see the letter anymore. Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    How can I create something. When I do that, you can not see the letter anymore.
    Can you tell me what widget did you use, and how did you implement this on your project?

    You can use the "User Button" and attach the image that you want.
    For reference, you may want to take a look at this application note:

      Hi I think you did not understand my question correctly. I use Gen4-uLCD-43DT. And if you look at the picture. Do I have a green background and I want to show something with strings. For example, a weight of a balance. And I would like to change the background color as well. Red on green

      Thanks

        Hi,

        I assume that the three-box on the link (Red, Green, Blue) accepts touch input as it has a '+' and '-' sign on it.
        Using the User Button widget, you can easily handle touch response and have a custom image(which has a text on it).
        Can you please tell me how are you implementing this on your project?

        Best Regards,
        Kevin

      Green red money is traffic lights. And no buttons If the weight is in the tolerance lays green. In the fields, I would display the tolerance. And the information comes from Arduino. And in the green field I would always show the weight of the Libra.

        Hi Hermann,

        If I understand correctly, you need to change the color of the text inside the box. I am still confused about what are you trying to achieve, however, I have created a simple project to show you how I perceive your project. Perhaps, this may help you with your application.

        Let me know if that helps.

        Best Regards,
        Kevin

            Hi Hermann,

            Unfortunately, no. For a workaround, you can use the 'User Images' widget and add your own custom image (with a text on it).

          Hello Kevin, thanks i understood and already changed and works perfectly! I have another question. I now use USERIMAGE0 with 3 pictures. How can I create a slide show that 3 pictures change automatically. The display starts up and it starts automatically without pressing a button. Many thanks. I am very happy with the display !!

            Hi Hermann,

            Thank you for your reply. I am glad that you are having a good time with our displays.

            Can I ask what Environment are you using?
            This can be achieved using a Timer

            For the ViSi-Genie application, here is a relevant application note which demonstrates how to set up a timer and make a slideshow using UserImages. Buttons are also set to start and stop the timer.
            AN-00034 ViSi Genie User Images
            https://4dsystems.com.au/blog/4d-an-00034/

            For the ViSi application, please take a look at the Timer Functions available on the Diablo16 Internal Functions.

            I hope this helps.
            Best Regards,
            Kevin
