Re: String input from serial input instead of static progmem

Did you post that code somewhere or did I miss it? Thanks.

Re: String input from serial input instead of static progmem

Has no one been able to change the panel text without having to recode the arduino yet? Wild...

Re: String input from serial input instead of static progmem

Ok, so in slowing down the serial code and throwing some Serial.prints in there I found that sr will never be 27 as Serial.read(sr) reads one character at a time, so I reset the Esc charater from '27' to 'E'. So now putting EC into the serial monitor actually does clear the panels. No luck getting n...

Re: String input from serial input instead of static progmem

No one knows how to do this?


Also, in looking at the .cpp code I think the new text escape character is T not I. But still, putting "<27>T<100><0><14><0>This is a test" into the serial monitor doesn't do anything, same scrolling dot.

Re: String input from serial input instead of static progmem

Ok, so it can do serial, wifi, ethernet, and sd updates, but it can't be updated just from the arduino itself? Like if I have motion sensor I couldn't get the panel to display X if there is motion and Y if there is not motion? Also, I couldn't get this code to do anything besides scroll at dot: #inc...

Re: String input from serial input instead of static progmem?

I am wondering about this two. Is there a way to just use the Serial Monitor in the Arduino desktop application to send new text to the display? Or even switch between two different strings in the code? Running panel.Begin more than once just seems to confuse it...
