It is in the datasheet, but don't remember where exactly.


This is not true.

Look at Data sheet page 122.



Yeah you are right, somehow 16bits was in the back of my head.
I would prefer the 24bit method anyway, cause it is indeed faster to crunch, if your source data is also 24bits.
There are 2 types of programmer people: The Expert programmer and The Smart programmer

The Expert programmer easily writes any code from scratch.
The Smart programmer uses his google/github powers first ;)

Can you add CMake support for this library?

I was experimenting with CMake builds and somehow successfully compiled the tft_demo project.
However got warning that flash image is 2.5MB - which is fine - it just needed updating flash size in menuconfig to 4MB.
I hope DevkitC has 4MB flash. Just gave it a shot and the flashing went thru.
I am new to 'make' environments' - I can see component concept as dependency files/objects in the 'make' project.
Just to mention - CMake compiled probably 10X faster than regular Make based on msys32 - mingw32

Project however still does not work with my TFT which is a clone of adafruit 3.2" ILI9342 320x240
I use defaults for SPI / 8MHz
I'd appreciate any hints
thanks

I discovered that in another function the following function was called to create a header:

Code: Select all

 TFT_setclipwin(0,TFT_getfontheight()+9, _width-1, _height-TFT_getfontheight()-10);


If I do not use this then the TFT_clearStringRect works as supposed to :-)
The creation of a font I will try.
Thanks again for the great library!


I am having the same issue.
Did you mean you removed the entire header & footer option to make TFT_clearStringRect work?


Also @loboris
Thank you so much for this display library :)
The SD card and this TFT display does not work together. Any idea how to fix this? :?:

Yes, I removed it completely.

@rolobr Thank you.

Any help on making SD Card using SPI and this library work together ?

I am stuck now since this an important requirement for me :(

I have SDCard in SPI mode and display working together in my MicroPython project.
It requires some changes to esp-idf sources (sdmmc_cmd.c, spi_master.c). When I'll have some free time I'll try to port it to ESP32 TFT display library.

It was tested with M5Stack and Adafruit TFT FeatherWing on which only SPI mode can be used for SDCard, and works well.

Thank you the response and good to know the support is coming soon.
Since I could not wait I have moved to Arduino+ESP-IDF+C++ combination using another library.
Once you fix it, will re-evaluate my options.


Also please take a look at the TFT_clearStringRect function which also has a bug and some fast way to update a portion of the screen data without screen flickering.

Appreciate your efforts and time.

I just received TFT 480x854 24bit display with ILI9806 driver.
Can I use this library for it?

4.5" display link

I also wanted to update that library is amazing. Colors seem to look much better than with ucglib.
It also compiled much faster than Arduino - maybe because Im using CMake.
I currently am trying to add SPI support for that parallel tft. It has all traces on the pcb for the smd that look like placeholder for shift register and even touchscreen ic. Very interesting

At least TFT and touch is working for now. ;) But it does not feel okay. So I ask the supplier.
My wiring is available on request.


I'm struggling to get the touch working with the ER-TFTM035-6 display...

Could you please explain what you mean exactly by "I disconnected the SDO connection from the TFT and directly wired it to the Touch" or provide the full wiring you're using. I've tried many things but just can't get the touch to work.
