    Hi Alan,

    You can find documentation relative to your display by looking in the product pages and under the downloads tab. The Workshop 4 IDE product page also has links to the relative documents. I've copied the links here

    For the 4DGL programmers refernce manual.

    Picaso Internal functions manual,

    I’d like to comment on the 4D documentation. You have a superb collection of info in the many AP-notes. But it is so fragmented and obscurely named it is a real challenge to collect and decide how to study. I wonder if the ap-notes could be gathered into a master collection and ordered in such a way that a new user could work through them to build an understanding.

    Im coming from about 5 years of Arduino development, and have been looking at some of the complete 4DGL samples available. It is a little unclear as to how a 4DGL program is structured. I think I’d like to tackle learning 4DGL - but system documentation and design info is hard to find. Some sort of advanced programmers guide which lays out how things are done would be a big help. 😃

    Why does the 4D Website search come up with nothing when you look for 'Manuals'

    Hi,

    I'm glad to hear that worked out for you. You may find these appnotes useful.

    Generally, the files on the SD card are just the *.GCI & the *.DAT files created in your project folder. If you have created fonts then these will be *.G** &.D** files. You can have as many project images files on the SD card as you want.

    All of our appnotes are available here,

    Welcome to the forum,

    We have a seperate utilty that can transfer your created files in your project folder while the SD card is still inserted in the display. You can find the details and link here,

    I hope this helps

    THANKS Pauleilio - That utility did the job - my test project is running. That will make things VERY handy.
    I did finally get RMpet to recognize the SD once I (duh!) plugged it into the computer.

    One more question: Is there any documentation that explains the general file structure of a single Project on the display? What are all the "pieces"?

    I recall when I first loaded the card there seemed to be a number of Projects already on it (which I have now blown away... ). Im guessing some number of projects could fit on the display- how does one get selected?

    I'm just getting the idea that I have to have the SD mounted on the computer. Apparently it is only placed on the display when DONE.
    So now I see my SD showing up as Drive K. I had gone and formatted it with Windows to FAT16.

    In RMPET - I (duh!) finally see drive K - RMPET says not "Not Partitioned - MBR Present"
    When I click FORMAT - I get a "format complete" msg
    But when I try to create partition table it says "Write Failed" -- So where am I stepping on my weenie? :-(
    Hi, Did you delete the partition first. then create partition and then format.
