Title: NHD-FT81x-SHIELD
Post by: CarlW on January 02, 2018, 10:40:46 AM
Was able to get the NHD-FT81x-SHIELD plugged into a NHD-7.0-800480FT-CSXV-CTP  :)

Downloaded the github zip folder. Renamed the folder as directed.

Although the github download didn't work for me like a typical arduino library, I was able to run the 7" example sketches successfully, by manually locating the "ino" file

Is the github software supposed to be a typical arduino library and I did something wrong?

Is there a way to use the EVE screen editor to output arduino code? After I change the chip to FT813, the export option wasn't working for me.
Again, I might be doing something wrong.

Thanks!

Carl

Hey Carl!

The select example projects on our GitHub page are Arduino Sketches. You don't need to import it as a traditional Arduino Library. 

Regarding the EVE Screen Designer, I don't believe there is an option at this time to output Arduino code for the FT813 IC.  However, you should be able to make it output C code and modify it to run on the Arduino IDE.

Hope this helps!
