Here I'm going to explain what all the settings in the ini files mean and how you can edit them.
LCDInfo doesn't have any fancy graphical screen editor yet so you have to edit the configuration files by hand at the moment. You can use Notepad or your favorite text editor to modify them.
Beginning from LCDInfo version 0.3 the screen configuration files can be found from LCDInfo\screens\
directory. The example files are named like 128x64_ks0108.ini
, etc. Filenames aren't fixed in any way and you can rename them and make your own ones. Setting file currently used can be changed in the Screens
section of LCDInfo_Config
From the top of the file you can find a section called [Info]
. It has a setting called Description
where you can give some information of your design.
This section is optional and not all configs have it.
Description=Screen config for 240x64 T6963C display
Next in the file are sections for each screen [Screen0]
, [Screen1], etc.
Maximum number of screens is 10 currently but it has been raised to 20 in the latest development versions. Every screen has a setting Enable
which determines if the screen is shown (0 - off / 1 - on). Interval
setting defines how long the screen is shown (ms). 1000 = 1 second. Bitmap
is the background picture.
After that are the Icon
settings. Image icon:
Icon0=path\filename.bmp(x position,y position)Predefined changing icon:
Icon0=iconname(x position,y position)
Maximum number of icons is 15 per screen.
Text shown on the display is configured with the Line0
,... lines. Text can be freely written to these lines and variables with dollar signs as delimiters can be put between text. For example $mbmtemp(1)$
is Motherboard Monitor's sensor number 1.
List of variables available can be found from this page:http://www.skippari.net/lcd/lcdinfo_features.html
Line1=" : $mbmtemp(1)$ c"
Line2=" : $mbmtemp(2)$ c"
Line5=" : $mbmvolt(0)$V +12V : $mbmvolt(4)$V"
Line6=" : $mbmvolt(2)$V + 5V : $mbmvolt(3)$V"
There are still more settings but this should get you started. Let me know if this is helpful and I can write something about rest of the settings too. Some feedback of what settings I should describe would be nice. Also I can try to describe some settings above more carefully if needed.
