  • Serial Communication between a Diablo 16 Display with a Non Arduino Host

    Hi,

    I am a newbie to 4D and I must admit I am impressed with the level of support that you provide.
    I have recently purchased a Gen4-uLCD-70DCT-CLB display (Diablo 16) and am trying to understand the relationship between the IDE environments, namely VISI, GENIE etc.
    My requirement is to have a display panel that sends very simple information to a 3rd party host (not arduino) and then to poll the serial port for commands send from the host.

    Whilst the design of the Display was very easy, I am trying to work out where I can put the code for all the serial port handling and then functionality like set a button to an on state after receipt from the host etc. etc.

    Am I wrong to assume that the PRO license will still require code to make this happen or is there some magic behind the event handling that I am not aware of?

    I am convinced that once on the correct path I will have no issues with programming this but I would appreciate some pointing in the right direction.

    Kind Regards,
    Mick
