275: Saturday 15th November 2014

The last couple of evenings I have spent a few hours exploring the touch screen functions of the screen I am using for the battery monitoring. It was reasonably easy to set up as an intelligent display. The 4D workshop tool set contains widgets that can be designed on a WYSIWYG screen then the object code can be generated and pasted into the main code at the cursor from a single button click. I have added large digits to the display for showing the voltage of one battery. The touch screen functions are really simple to use.

In Spectrum Mode:
  • 10 bar spectrum display shows the 10 battery voltages
  • 1 bar display for total voltage ( divided by ten to use the same scale )
  • 3 digit display shows the total voltage
  • Touch the spectrum on the screen to access the Single Battery Mode
In Single Battery Mode:
  • Large 3 digit display shows an individual battery voltage
  • 1 bar display for total voltage ( divided by ten to use the same scale )
  • 3 digit display shows the total voltage
  • 3 digit display shows the battery number on the bottom right of the screen
  • Touch to the left of the large digits to reduce the battery number
  • Touch to the right of the large digits to increase the battery number
  • Touch the bar display on the left to access the Spectrum Mode
In the video I touched the left of the screen whilst saying "touch the right of the screen", oops. Simple mistake!
