ID:	71765 Hi
    I uploaded ViSi-Genie Writing to Genie Objects Using an Arduino Host _AD_AN-00018 ¦ Arduino 1.8.12.
    Unfortunately only this picture (see attachment) is shown
    I bought the display uLCD -32PTU with the adapter here:
    I simplified the _AD_AN-00018 and here is the code :

    #include <genieArduino.h>
    Genie genie;
    #define RESETLINE 4

    void setup()
    Serial.begin(9600); // Serial0 @ 200000 (200K) Baud

    pinMode(RESETLINE,OUTPUT); // Set D4 on Arduino to Output (4D Arduino Adaptor V2 - Display Reset)
    digitalWrite(RESETLINE, 1); // Reset the Display via D4
    digitalWrite(RESETLINE, 0); // unReset the Display via D4
    delay (10000);

    //Write a string to the Display
    genie.WriteStr(0, GENIE_VERSION);

    void loop()
    int i;
    //write to a LED digits
    genie.WriteStr(3, "Leddigits0 at \nvarious states");
    for(i = 0; i<100; i++){
    genie.WriteObject(GENIE_OBJ_LED_DIGITS, 0x00, i);
    delay (100); }

    What is the reason that only this picture is shown ???
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Willy

    The reason for this is that the display is in the Serial SPE mode which is the default mode using the Serial library. The Arduino code is for Visi-Genie and won't work in the Serial SPE mode.

    To use Visi-Genie you need a 4D programming adapter and also need to open the Visi-Genie project in Workshop 4. or you can carry on using the default Serial mode by using the Picaso-Serial-Arduino-Library and you wouldn't need the programming adapter.

    You can download the Serial SPE library here.

    There are also examples you can try in the library. These application notes may also help.

    I hope this helps

    Best regards

      Hi Paul
      Thank you for your quick reply.
      It's so by using the Picaso-Serial-Arduino-Library it works.
      So I'm building my project by using the Serial library.
      Thank you for your help
