The Sunday Blog: Understanding and Customizing HMI components – Part 4: The picture component and animations
Today, we'll have a closer look to the picture component, first, and then see, how we can use it for animations without using too many resources or eating up too much of the precious RAM, even on the NEXTION Basic (T) series.
And the winner is...Rob van G. from Utrecht/Netherlands - Congratulations Rob! Your Nextion developer kit, consisting of a NX4024T032 HMI and a Foca Max adapter is already on its way!
The Sunday Blog: Understanding and Customizing HMI components – Part 3: Color encoding, Sliders, Subroutines, and a Hue control
As promised in last week's episode, we will discover today another great feature of the hotspot component, in conjunction with the slider component to learn more about Nextion's RGB565 color encoding scheme. We'll use all that to build a tiny hue control with a 3.2" Standard HMI, as usual.
The Sunday Blog: Understanding and Customizing HMI components – Part 2: A project without visible components
After we had looked into some basics of touch GUI technology and NEXTION's advantages over proprietary solutions, last week, and we made acquaintance with the most elementary and simple hotspot component, it's time to move on. Most other components inherit from the hotspot since they have the same attributes (plus more specific ones in addition) and they have identical Touch Press and Touch Release events and the corresponding Send Component ID functionality. Out of that, the hotspot gives us another huge advantage for optimizing our Nextion code, but we will look into that in a further episode.
The Sunday Blog: Understanding and Customizing HMI components Part 1:
Today, after 5 weeks of blogging about our beloved Nextion HMIs doing advanced mathematics, you have learnt about doing calculations with binary fractional numbers, drawing curves and patterns, iterating through sine and cosine functions, thus creating circles, ellipses, and finally complex Lissajous patterns while combining two rotary movements, represented by two sin/cos pairs. More isn't needed to move a visual step further and to transform your Nextion HMI into a Spirograph, only using the Nextion programming language! I'll give you more details below.
