wrist watch LCD display GUI

7 posts in this topic

What would be the easiest way to code a wrist watch LCD display GUI?

For example a simple watch with 4 seven segments with a 24h(23:59) clock functions.

I´ve done some simple things with paint and SplashImageOn combination. Any other ideas...?

Thanks in advance!

I would expect the simplest way would be to find a free 7 segment font rather than create your own characters. Then all you need is a label and just set the text to the time.

Following martins advice, there are two 7-segment fonts in this file

Thanks for the idea and font link!

P.S. How to add blinking semicolon between hour, min and sec...? (Again - the easiest way...)

P.P.S Copy font files => C:\WINDOWS\Fonts

If you want a graphical solution to the segmented font, there is a nice example here.
