GLCD with ILI9341

Postby yutronic » Sat Aug 09, 2014 2:20 pm

Hi,
any chances of creating a component for 2.2" 320X240 SPI ILI9341 glcd ? I have the datasheet and codes (attached), but not enough knowledge to create one myself. I believe that many Flowcode users would highly appreciate it.
With best regards,

This falls under the UTFT request I posted long ago: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=14170

Here is a post on another forum about this display and the UTFT library: http://forum.pjrc.com/threads/25579-UTF ... CD-Display

Yes I saw it, but believe that it is a lot of work (maybe I'm wrong). Maybe this will be easier to do because I provided datasheet and codes and there are arduino codes for ILI9340 & ILI9341 too, which I believe can be modified in relatively short time. There are many small 2.2" LCD's with these two chips with excellent price/quality ratio and they could be interesting to many. So, maybe...

Hello,

Here is information on how the Font is drawn.

And here you can find how to change the font in Flowcode 6.

You could also draw the font you want from a bitmap if the content is fixed. Either streamed from an sd card or in v7 there is a new component to place a bitmap into rom and draw from there.
