Snippet - 6x8 Scrolling LED Matrix Class


#1

I just posted 6x8 Scrolling LED Matrix Class on Codeshare. Feel free to discuss and make suggestions here.


#2

does anyone know of an online site that can convert an char to it’s byte format…
give it a 0 and gives me the below equivalent below.


0 is new byte[] { 0x1c, 0x22, 0x22, 0x22, 0x22, 0x22, 0x22, 0x1c }

It depends on the “font”.

Check this project:

Oh, I forgot to upload the excel sheet I used to calculate the font values. I will add it and update here when done.


#5

OK, the spreadsheet is posted. It takes a 5x8 character and adds a 6th column for spacing. It should be easy to modify for any size font you want.

I would add it to the original project instead of having a separate codeshare just for one excel file.


#7

I will take care of that.

Here if a free font creator app that looks promising:
