Re: Display Artifcats

Hi Haz, You can create a script that will pre-load the font prior to drawing data on the screen. On the right hand side of the Designer, under the Events tab, you'll be able to add a Pre-Load action. You can add a Pre-Load script that will load your Mustang font before anything is drawn on screen. P...

Re: Display Artifcats

Hi Haz, The white boxes that are appearing on your unlock screen are due to extra "Null" characters being sent to the display. Do these extra boxes appear immediately on the screen, or do they appear once you enter an unlock code? Your issue with dynamic labels may be due to font uploading issues. I...

Re: Toggles

Hi Soinclined,

In order for the GTT to report region "up" events, you will have to change the Touch reporting using command 11.4

If you change the GTT's touch reporting to mode 7, the GTT will report both "up" and "down" events.

Cheers,
Daniel

Re: Protocol Manual Clarification...

Hi Soinclined, To clarify, the values given on page 2 of the manual are raw decimal byte values. If you take a look at an ASCII table, you will see that the decimal byte values provided in the manual, 72, 101, 108, 108, and 111 correspond to the ASCII letters 'H', 'e', 'l', 'l', and 'o' respectively...

Re: N00b Question...

Hi Soinclined, Welcome to the forums! I'm glad you are enjoying your new GTT. The blank box artifacts that you are seeing on your screen are usually due to null values being sent to the display. In the past, some customers have added additional null terminators in their code when it was not necessar...

Re: Microcontrollers Driver board/module configuration issues - help needed

Hi Andy,

Welcome to the forums!

I see that you are having issues configuring your motor/solenoid driver board. Are you looking to control the Driver Board using one of our Displays?

Cheers,

Re: GTT70A Power

Hi Haz,

I see. In order to supply power from the I2C header, you will need to populate the D3 pad with a BAT720 Schottky diode. You can find one of these diodes here.

And to confirm, the I2C header is populated on both displays?

Re: GTT70A Power

Hi Haz, Since D3 is not populated, you will not be able to apply any power to the display through the I2C header. The I2C header is populated on many of our GTT's allowing for I2C communication but depending on the display, D3 may not be, preventing power through I2C. I am confirming with the PCB de...

Re: GTT70A Power

Hi Haz,

Power through I2C should work out of the box. No changes to the board are necessary for the unit to be powered via I2C.

If you have a multimeter on hand, you can check for a voltage at pin 3 of D3; You should see 5V.
