Import an image on the display Kentec 3.5 with Energia

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I want to import an image on the display kentec 3.5". I used the same process than from the link below:

http://software-dl.ti.com/msp430/msp430_public_sw/mcu/msp430/Graphics_Library/latest/index_FDS.html

and the library grlib_3_21_00_00.zip\examples\MSP-EXP432P401R_GrlibExample\images            TI_logo_150x150.

To import an image, we need a file .ino used with Energia and a file.h that is obtained with an image.bmp convert to a file constitute with some byte of 16 bits. To generate the file .h, I used the software GIMP in order to reduce the size of the image.bmp: I reduce the number of points of the image that have to be lower than 320x240 p.

After, I generate the byte of 16 bits with the software LCD_converter > Options > Conversion: Type Color, Image Block Size 16 bits and Preview.

#define x_Gauge_bmp (80) //width of the picture
#define y_Gauge_bmp (60) //height of the picture

#if defined(ENERGIA)
    static const uint16_t pic_Gauge_bmp[] = {
#elif defined(ARDUINO) || defined(MPIDE) || defined(WIRING)
    static prog_uint16_t pic_Gauge_bmp[] PROGMEM = {
#endif

0xffff, 0xffff,

With Energia, the MSP432 and the Kentec3.5, the image is imported on the scren but there's no relation with the image.bmp.

Anyone already done this experiment ? Could you advice me how to do ?

Thanks and best regards,

Patrick

If the size of the image is 80x80 pixels, you need to process it accordingly and target an area of 80x80 pixels, as the Kentec 3.5" display is 320x240.

The grLib library and the Kentec_35_SPI library for Energia may have different ways of dealing with images.

Please have a look at the examples provided for the Educational BoosterPack, especially LCD_screen_Logos, for Energia.

Among many other options:

The link provided http://software-dl.ti.com/msp430/msp430_public_sw/mcu/msp430/Graphics_Library/latest/index_FDS.html results in a 404 error.

The utility generates an 8-bit-coded  C-array, not the 16-bit-coded C-array expected by the Kentec_35_SPI library.

Have you tried the utilities I mentioned earlier?

@poulichp I confirm:
