I have been developing a communication process on my Fez Cobra II for sometime now which has quite a lot going on inside including buffer levels etc.
I’m now considering attaching my CP7 screen module to the device to give me a display of what is going on inside the app. My previous experiments with this screen were using Glide and were not particularly efficient. Obviously my board is already quite busy and I would like to reserve as much processing power for the communication as possible.
My question to the forum is does anyone have any tips for efficiently using the CP7 screen? Should I be using Glide or should I be talking to the device directly? Can I update small parts of the screen at a time? What is the best way to clear an area of the screen so you can overwrite text that was there?
Any help would be well received.
