(solved)Reusing LCD Pins for other purpose


#1

Hi all

I need to use pins that are dedicated to LCD for other purpose. In other posts, I have noticed that these pins can be used after writing GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardware.Configuration.LCD.Set(Configuration.LCD.HeadlessConfig);
following by a reset.

My questions are:

Does the headless config of lcd has to be set in the main program?
Does the reset is a hardware reset?
Can I access to lcd pin (for example IO68 ) like OutputPort mynewpin = new OutputPort((Cpu.Pin)FEZ_Pin.Digital.IO68,false);

Regards

EDIT: This is solved: I was using the CPU.Pin instead of EMX pin enumeration. Just add GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardaware.EMX, and now I can use the LCD pins.

How are you physically getting at the pins? pigtails soldered on to the EMX itself?

Physically, EMX is soldered on a custom board that we developped.
