This thread will show how to create a basic 4x20 all within the Nextion Logic without the need for an external microprocessor. As we go through the process of creating this effect, I will deal with a few techniques that may be useful in your projects.
This project was created with Nextion 3.5" Enhanced NX4832K035_011 <Order Here>
So lets get started.
So there are very few working parts to put this one together
- 5 variables
- 1 timer
- 1 8x16 font - generating with Consolas is good, I like my cp437
- add a bit of code
1) Start with a blank page, set .bco attribute to 10565
2) Create 4 variables with .id 1 to 4 named ln0, ln1, ln2 and ln3
- set .sta to String, set .txt_maxl to 20, set .txt to empty
3) Create a timer, default tm0, with .en of 1 .tim as 400
4) Create a variable named chr
- set .sta to String, set .txt_maxl to 1, set .txt to space char
5) and now for the timer bit of code
And there she is. Ready for input ...
Change ln0.txt for first line, ln1.txt for second, ln2.txt for third and ln3.txt for fourth
Hope you enjoy, and Happy Coding
To gain a more pixilated look, techniques from indev2's 8x8x2 can be added to suit
