Fez Raptor / N18 Display / color and Size


I am a beginner on Gadgeteer world and I write my first Own Line Code today on this platform !

I try to to a helloworld application with N18 display device

My code is very very simple like this :

displayN18.SimpleGraphics.BackgroundColor = Gadgeteer.Color.FromRGB(255, 0, 0);
displayN18.SimpleGraphics.DisplayText(“hello world”, Resources.GetFont(Resources.FontResources.NinaB), GT.Color.Blue, 5, 5);

and it not works fine :

  • Text is tool small
  • Color of text is black
  • Text write two time on X Axes
  • Only the first top middle of screen is used
  • Background color is not “red”, is green !!!

I think it is the same problem of this :

Could you confirm Please ?

I have another question about the Ethernet module and N 18 display, I will post another topics …

Best regards


Welcome to the forums!

Yeah there’s some bugs with the display right now, I think its another bug actually. I would recommend playing with the other stuff first though. What is your board?

I can play with Led :wink: :wink: It work fine and it is beautiful blue :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

@ Thibaud - The last issue can be fixed with: [em]displayN18.SwapRedBlueChannels()[/em]

@ iamin

I already tried it but it did not change something …

strange … :open_mouth:

moreover, RGB ou BGR >> the position of green factor doesn’t change …

I think it is may be in relation with 16bits codification of color but I m not sure …

I will wait the news release of Drivers to explore more this module …

thanks for your help
