I have expanded a Nextion 5 ", which is on an Arduino Mega 2560 Operated. Without the Nextion Lib, I do not like Lib's. The Nextion receives its data from the Arduino serially. Everything works. But if I have the display lighting via a buttom to "dim = 0" Then no data is received or processed. What parameter do I need to put the where for the Nextion to continue data Received and processed when the lighting is off?
Greeting and thanks
"dim=0" is correct, the other "dim = 0" is incorrect.
Data will still continue to process if dim=0, but how could we see
I can confirm Patrick's statement.. I was just playing with this last week and data is still processed and updated on the Nextion while dim=0. In my sample, I have a clock updated every minute. My PIR sensor turns the display off (dim=0) when nobody is around. When I walk in the room, it comes back on and the clock is up-to-date...
Sleep is where less processing occurs over serial.
Turning the screen low does not have sleep effects
Turning the screen low has similar effects as changing colors
PS: Technically, a date-time could only be a confirmation if such date-time is from MCU and sent over serial. If date-time is from a Nextion side RTC on an enhanced model, it is possible to not notice screen refresh ... technically speaking.
=) Then that Dave is a righteous confirmation ... LOL
I ponder if you should mention how much work you put into your project
or if such would be too frightening for onlookers
Yeah but hey ... its a nice project and showcase what effort can yield
