I recently perchance this FEZ Touch screen:
I understand it doesnt support native .Net Micro Framework images, but instead provides a tool to convert images to an array of pixels. What Im trying to do is convert a bitmap to a FEZ touch image format in real time, on the device. For example I want to show a QR Code on the screen, but the image could vary depending on the text Im encoding. Ive been thinking of making a web request to generate the image with google, example:
The response of the web request will be a bitmap, at this point I want to convert this to a FEZ Touch image format so I can show the QR code on the LCD screen. When I tried doing the above steps, I got an UnsupportedException because I was trying to use the bitmap type which comes with the core .net micro framework. It appears you simply cant use any of the .net graphic libraries.
So at this point Im wondering if someone can help me identify some solutions for converting the array of bytes I get from google (see above URL) into a FEZ Touch compatible image at run time.
