Hello guys.
In simple terms for a beginner what is glide.


#2

A graphic tool for creating graphic applications for GHI’s NETMF devices.


#3

A graphics library for EMX and ChipworkX devices. Have you looked at the available documentation? THe codeplex site has a good one paragraph introduction. http://netmfglide.codeplex.com/

So with it you can make a program that when you click a button on the computer it will light up a button.


#5

No, it’s a UI library for screens attached to the microcontroller. So, you would touch a button on a touchscreen attached to the device - not a PC.


#6

Oh ok
Thanks


#7

If you’re needing to touch a button on a PC then you might want to look at a USB/serial/WiFi/Bluetooth/etc. interface.


#8

Ok thanks.


#9

Correction, Glide works on any device :slight_smile:


#10

… that supports native graphics (Bitmap).


#11

I love it when the community become more knowledgeable about GHI products than GHI employees :slight_smile:
