   GoudyHandtooled BT 20pt on the Nextion in circular scrolling
      - upright, angled at 90°, upsidedown and at 270°
      - 3.5" Enhanced Nextion NX4832K035_011


   I'll work on getting an mp4 video for it
    - TFT proof of concept attached.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for this great news!

Teo

How does it work? A hidden picture with the full character set and dynamic width cropping with the help of a lookup table in order to "assemble" the visible text ?

Hi patrick
do you add this nice feature in the next version or where we can found it ?
thanks
Jean-Pierre

many ways lead to Roma ... nothing to implement in the next version, it is already there ...


Texts with variable width Fonts can be done with every Font out ... and with existing Nextion instructions ...


The demo just shows 2 texts, as normal MonoSpaced and the same as Variable Spaced ...


No tricks, no graphics, just one Mono Font which can do both ... :-)

HMI ?


I am considering such as a commercial product

no HMI!

Thank you very much for the quick answer!

All the best,
Teo

Gerry,
sorry but I don't understand your answer :
"it is already there ...

Texts with variable width Fonts can be done with every Font out ... and with existing Nextion instructions"

Nextion is not so easy to understand, so please ... Would you like to be more explicit.

My English is not very good,

so how did you do ?

thanks for your help

JP

It would be referring to the fact that the variable width examples show

   is accomplished with the existing Nextion Instruction Set via crafty coding.
