Hi All,
attached the edited component files of 7segment (single and 4 7seg.) components.
just replace the original .c files with these ones in components folder of your FC installed directory.
also make sure to back up the original files, not necessary but you can easily revert back if you think your code size has increased and you dont want custom characters. :D
LUT file is also uploaded for reference while defining the variables(small description is given in the file.
hope this helps ... :D
updated with all on and off display feature. :D
if you find this useful you can appreciate by clicking on thumbs up icon :D :D

Regards,
Prashant

Hello
for what version of Flowcode was this created? I've tried it in version 5 but it doesn't compile, generating several errors. I will look at the code and see id I can do a version 5 or version 6 compatible component.

Hello,
First off thanks for updating...
i am really sorry that i didn't mention the flowcode version.
I have edited the FCV 4 component files.

I didn't had much information about the compatibility of FC component files between different versions of the FC.
Anyways, it is much easier to edit the component files of any version,
i have now uploaded the another file that may help for other versions of FC..
check it out and please let me know if it works. :D
Hope it helps..

The example in the LUT does not clearly show how to display characters for example how do i display 'OFF' on a 7seg quad display?

Hello,

I added functionality into v8 for you as requested here.
viewtopic.php?f=76&t=21209&p=95265#p95265

For OFF you would use these values.

O = 0b00111111
F = 0b01110001
