N18 Rotation on Spider - with T35 as primary display


#1

Is it possible to rotate the screen orientation with N18 on a Spider?

The manual pages (https://www.ghielectronics.com/community/forum/topic/create?id=21) say that you must use the special function Util.SetSpecialDisplayConfig for Cerberus, but what about Spider?

Because when I try to call:



I get the runtime error:

Program ExampleSpider, Version=1.0.0.0 starting...
    #### Exception System.InvalidOperationException - 0x00000000 (1) ####
    #### Message: Cannot set LCD rotation on displays that are not LCD controller based
    #### Gadgeteer.Modules.Module+DisplayModule::SetLCDRotation [IP: 000f] ####
    #### ExampleSpider.Program::Main [IP: 0015] ####
A first chance exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in Gadgeteer.dll
An unhandled exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in Gadgeteer.dll

NB. This is a configuration with TWO displays, a T35 and a single N18. I presume it IS possible to run two displays at once?

@ Mathiasw - I do not know the answer to your question as I have not actually tried this, but there was some noise around the topic of rotating the N18 display a few weeks ago. I believe that @ Tempered Enterprises managed to do something, he posted some code on code share which you can find at the link below.

I hope this helps.
