I'am updating the new help file in french language.
But I'm stuck at the very interesting GCLD section because I think there's a lack .
Indeed many people now use simple 84x48 LCD display as Nokia 3310, 5510...even LPH7366 and so on.
We can now find these very cheap modules ( PCD8544 driver) . In fact they are often created for Arduino's users.
There are many samples on Internet in C++ language but I'll be very happy if someone will create libraries for GCBasic ...Is it possible?
I'll wait just a little while longer to achieve my translation. :)
In the Search Discussion you can type Pcd 8544, and enjoy ;-)
Thanks Marcoos, I'll try Clint Koehn's code ( 2013-01-11) with atmega8 ( chip running at 3v)
I have update GLCD.H, see https://sourceforge.net/p/gcbasic/discussion/629990/thread/6980a165/#3eb1
Great job Anobium ! .
Where can I download new GLCD.h library ?
Since my first post I've created my own specific "Nokia3310.h" library with some graphics subroutines and a little bmp converter to display bitmaps. They work fine.
But contrary to mine ,your GLCD.h library seems to have the virtue of universality :) Thanks again.
Thank you. I have been adding a number of devices and this was next on my list. :-)
Are you able to test? I am looking for validation of the new code before I post to the code repository. I can send directly to you if you are able test. Send me an email please.
Posted to the code repository. See https://sourceforge.net/p/gcbasic/code/HEAD/tree/GCBASIC/trunk/include/glcd.h

Setup is easier. I have adapted. Define the glcd type, specify the pixel sizes, specify the ports. And, if you have device with less than 1024 bytes specify as text mode only with GLCD_TYPE_PCD8544_CHARACTER_MODE_ONLY.
#DEFINE GLCD_TYPE GLCD_TYPE_PCD8544
#define GLCD_WIDTH 84
#define GLCD_HEIGHT 48
' For devices with limited RAM you can use Character and Picture mode (no lines, circles etc.
' Remove the remark from the define below:
' #define GLCD_TYPE_PCD8544_CHARACTER_MODE_ONLY
'Pin mappings for Nokia 3310 Device please use LAT and Port definitions
#define GLCD_DC latc.2
#define GLCD_CS latc.1
#define GLCD_RESET latc.0
#define _GLCD_DC portc.2
#define _GLCD_CS portc.1
#define _GLCD_RESET portc.0
'Pin mappings for SPI for Nokia 3310 Device
#define GLCD_DO latc.5
#define GLCD_SCK latc.3
#define _GLCD_DI portc.4
#define _GLCD_DO portc.5
#define _GLCD_SCK portc.3
