  • Visi-Genie Max String Length

    I am using an Arduino Mega 2560 to communicate to a Diablo16 display and would like to use genie.WriteStr() to print more than 255 characters to a string on the display. Communication works fine with 255 or fewer characters but fails when anything over 255 characters is sent to the display. The "max string length" is set to 400 in Workshop4 and I've tried other values of "max string length" but the string never prints when there are greater than 255 characters. Is this a limitation of the display or is there a coding correction for longer strings? It appears that it is possible to write more than 255 characters but nothing I've seen in forum has worked.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    As per ViSi Genie Reference Manual, the maximum string length is 255 characters. Try to use strings less the 255 characters.
