Re: V4.5 Graphical LCD module no longer works

Hi Ben, My apologies, i have just checked the connections and instead of how they usually default to porta in the configuration shown, they were different. I have changed them and now the screen will initialise. I still have an issue though. When you draw a box and make it a solid object there is th...

Re: V4.5 Graphical LCD module no longer works

Hi, I have downloaded the patch and the simulation works fine in flowcode now. I still have a problem in hardware though. Initially with the old version of flowcode the display worked fine.

When it is running i can see the images that are meant to be displayed however it appears the contrast may be a slight issue (the back light is working ok). What i was wondering was how can i adjust the contrast? Is there som...

Hi,

I have been using the canbus module and wonder in any future releases that during a simulation if you are able to have a box similar to the rs232 component that shows the data that is being sent and recieve from a given node.
