Channels

Text

Text to display on the LCD. Command format is [line],[position],[text].

Additional ',' are handled as part of the text. Unicode characters are converted to the LCD character set if possible. Additionally you can use \x[two hex digits] to use a character of the LCD character set directly.

PaperUI truncates whitespace at the start and end of commands. So to clear (parts of) a line, you can not use f.e. 1,2,[spaces]. Instead you can use the empty character like this 1,2,\xFE\xFE\xFE to delete three characters at Line 1, Column 2.

Actions

Actions can be used in rules by creating an action object. All actions return a Map<String, Object>. Returned values can be accessed by name, sometimes the type deduction needs some hints, as shown below:

val actions = getActions("tinkerforge", "tinkerforge:brickletlcd128x64:[UID]")
val hwVersion = actions.brickletLCD128x64GetIdentity().get("hardwareVersion") as short[]
logInfo("Example", "Hardware version: " + hwVersion.get(0) + "." + hwVersion.get(1) + "." + hwVersion.get(2))

Basic Actions

brickletLCD128x64WritePixels(int xStart, int yStart, int xEnd, int yEnd, boolean[] pixels)
Parameters:
  • xStart – Type: int, Range: [0 to 127]
  • yStart – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
  • xEnd – Type: int, Range: [0 to 127]
  • yEnd – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
  • pixels – Type: boolean[], Length: variable

Writes pixels to the specified window.

The pixels are written into the window line by line top to bottom and each line is written from left to right.

If automatic draw is enabled (default) the pixels are directly written to the screen. Only pixels that have actually changed are updated on the screen, the rest stays the same.

If automatic draw is disabled the pixels are written to an internal buffer and the buffer is transferred to the display only after Draw Buffered Frame is called. This can be used to avoid flicker when drawing a complex frame in multiple steps.

Automatic draw can be configured with the Backlight function.

brickletLCD128x64ReadPixels(int xStart, int yStart, int xEnd, int yEnd)
Parameters:
  • xStart – Type: int, Range: [0 to 127]
  • yStart – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
  • xEnd – Type: int, Range: [0 to 127]
  • yEnd – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
Return Map:
  • pixels – Type: boolean[], Length: variable

Reads pixels from the specified window.

The pixels are read from the window line by line top to bottom and each line is read from left to right.

If automatic draw is enabled (default) the pixels that are read are always the same that are shown on the display.

If automatic draw is disabled the pixels are read from the internal buffer (see Draw Buffered Frame).

Automatic draw can be configured with the Backlight function.

brickletLCD128x64ClearDisplay()

Clears the complete content of the display.

If automatic draw is enabled (default) the pixels are directly cleared.

If automatic draw is disabled the the internal buffer is cleared and the buffer is transferred to the display only after Draw Buffered Frame is called. This can be used to avoid flicker when drawing a complex frame in multiple steps.

Automatic draw can be configured with the Backlight function.

brickletLCD128x64WriteLine(int line, int position, String text)
Parameters:
  • line – Type: int, Range: [0 to 7]
  • position – Type: int, Range: [0 to 21]
  • text – Type: String, Length: up to 22

Writes text to a specific line with a specific position.

For example: (1, 10, "Hello") will write Hello in the middle of the second line of the display.

The display uses a special 5x7 pixel charset. You can view the characters of the charset in Brick Viewer.

If automatic draw is enabled (default) the text is directly written to the screen. Only pixels that have actually changed are updated on the screen, the rest stays the same.

If automatic draw is disabled the text is written to an internal buffer and the buffer is transferred to the display only after Draw Buffered Frame is called. This can be used to avoid flicker when drawing a complex frame in multiple steps.

Automatic draw can be configured with the Backlight function.

This function is a 1:1 replacement for the function with the same name in the LCD 20x4 Bricklet. You can draw text at a specific pixel position and with different font sizes with the DrawText() function.

brickletLCD128x64DrawBufferedFrame(boolean forceCompleteRedraw)
Parameters:
  • forceCompleteRedraw – Type: boolean

Draws the currently buffered frame. Normally each call of WritePixels() and Text draws directly onto the display. If you turn automatic draw off (Backlight), the data is written in an internal buffer and only transferred to the display by calling this function. This can be used to avoid flicker when drawing a complex frame in multiple steps.

Set the force complete redraw to true to redraw the whole display instead of only the changed parts. Normally it should not be necessary to set this to true. It may only become necessary in case of stuck pixels because of errors.

brickletLCD128x64GetTouchPosition()
Return Map:
  • pressure – Type: int, Range: [0 to 300]
  • x – Type: int, Range: [0 to 127]
  • y – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
  • age – Type: long, Unit: 1 ms, Range: [0 to 232 - 1]

Returns the last valid touch position:

  • Pressure: Amount of pressure applied by the user
  • X: Touch position on x-axis
  • Y: Touch position on y-axis
  • Age: Age of touch press (how long ago it was)
brickletLCD128x64GetTouchGesture()
Return Map:
  • gesture – Type: int, Range: See constants
  • duration – Type: long, Unit: 1 ms, Range: [0 to 232 - 1]
  • pressureMax – Type: int, Range: [0 to 300]

  • yStart – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
  • xEnd – Type: int, Range: [0 to 127]
  • yEnd – Type: int, Range: [0 to 63]
  • age – Type: long, Unit: 1 ms, Range: [0 to 232 - 1]

Returns one of four touch gestures that can be automatically detected by the Bricklet.

The gestures are swipes from left to right, right to left, top to bottom and bottom to top.

Additionally to the gestures a vector with a start and end position of the gesture is provided. You can use this vector do determine a more exact location of the gesture (e.g. the swipe from top to bottom was on the left or right part of the screen).

The age parameter corresponds to the age of gesture (how long ago it was).

The following constants are available for this function:

For gesture:

  • val GESTURE_LEFT_TO_RIGHT = 0
  • val GESTURE_RIGHT_TO_LEFT = 1

  • textY – Type: String, Length: up to 4

Sets the configuration for up to four graphs.

The graph type can be dot-, line- or bar-graph.

The x and y position are pixel positions.

You can add a text for the x and y axis. The text is drawn at the inside of the graph and it can overwrite some of the graph data. If you need the text outside of the graph you can leave this text here empty and use DrawText() to draw the caption outside of the graph.

The data of the graph can be set and updated with SetGUIGraphData().

The graph is drawn in a separate GUI buffer and the graph-frame and data will always stay on top of the graphics drawn with WritePixels(). To remove the graph use RemoveGUIGraph().

brickletLCD128x64SetGUIGraphData(int index, int[] data)
Parameters:
  • index – Type: int, Range: [0 to 3]
  • data – Type: int[], Length: variable, Range: [0 to 255]

Sets the data for a graph with the given index. You have to configure the graph with SetGUIGraphConfiguration() before you can set the first data.

The graph will show the first n values of the data that you set, where n is the width set with SetGUIGraphConfiguration(). If you set less then n values it will show the rest of the values as zero.

The maximum number of data-points you can set is 118 (which also corresponds to the maximum width of the graph).

You have to scale your values to be between 0 and 255. 0 will be shown at the bottom of the graph and 255 at the top.
