Porting ESD4.8 project to renesas synergy platform
« on: October 09, 2020, 11:10:28 AM »

Hi community,

I've exported ESD4 project to eclipse format and i've succefully ported the library to renesas synergy platform!
I use it because I can previsualize screen before code them and there is more widgets than with  ESE.

But I  have many questions and recommandations for Bridgetek developppers and community:

1) There are lot of warnings in the project (about 3300). It's mainly conversion variable formats and definition function problems. Can you correct this?

2) When you use NULL constants include of stddef.h is missing.

3) In ft_esd_cocmd_widgets.c include of stdarg.h is missing for va_arg() function use.

4) I have a matrix orbital screen without touch screen since I'm using a keypad appart: library is not optimized for TPN screen references. Is it possible to autodetect that a touchscreen controller is physically present or not with BT815? Or add a define to support TPN configuration? I must consequently disable esd_calibrate() function.

5) If there is no SPI flash connected to BT815, is it possible to display bitmaps? I have only the flash on my MCU and maybe SPI flash extension later. Library is also not optimized for non SPI flash devices.

6) I have 4.3inch 480x272 resolution WQVGA screen and I've edited EVE_config.h to make it work with :
#ifndef EVE_DISPLAY_AVAILABLE
#define EVE_DISPLAY_AVAILABLE
#define DISPLAY_RESOLUTION_WQVGA //WVGA before
#endif


As you can see, when I export to eclipse project I must modify several files each time to compile successfully my project. It's borring... :-\
The other solution is to export outside my project and copy only modified files...

Regards.

Hello,

Thank you for your comments and suggestions, I will pass these onto the development team.

As for point 5, yes it is possible to display bitmaps on the BT81x without a connected NOR Flash IC. You can store the bitmap data on your MCUs flash and load these into RAM_G as desired (we normally recommend loading any graphics assists into RAM_G during your initialization sequence), please see the following:
AN 314 FT800 Advanced-Techniques Working-with-Bitmaps

Section 7 of the following application note also has some image examples where the image is loaded into RAM_G from the MCU:

I would like to fire a scroll animation of a panel for example from an event (slot?) since I've no screen touch on my device.
It is the same thing that bypass all touch events from touch panel with other event from external source in fact.
Is it possible? With which components?
Do you have an example?

Hello,

Just to clarify are you trying to scroll a Scroll Layout/Scroll Switch Page Layout without any touch input?

Yes it is ! Maybe the scroll layout is more appropriated for this?

Hello,

Thank you for the clarification, let me just double check with the developers the best way to achieve this.

Hello,

The development team got back to me regarding this.

In a case where the project has no touch and the user wants to control the UI, I may advise using a global variable to control the UI.  The update loop will monitor the global variable and the user event handler modifies the global variable.

Thanks for your reply.
Your print screen resolution is bad so I don't see your UI example.

Hello,

Yes sorry, ESD_GLOBAL is defined in ESD 4.10 which is due for release in the coming days. I believe the website is being updated accordingly as we speak.

As for the screenshot, I have re-attached.

Hello,

Recently, our R&D team developed a widget named “Signal switch” and which makes it possible to scroll switch widget without touch. 
 
This new “Signal Switch” widget  manages more than two “child” pages and users can connect the "child" pages with widgets through signals.  When the signal is triggered, the current page is switched out and next page will be switched in, without touch is involved at all.  To trigger the signal, it depends on the user.  It might be physical button, or a timer  etc.
 
Please see the project attached.  This new widget will be added into 4.12 as part of built-in library.  But you can use it a custom widget in 4.10 (which is now available on our website).
