LED BANNER

Recommended Posts

dexxa

this creates a gui that looks like a led banner. it displays some text and loops it. it reads from a file called banner.txt in my documents. you can change the size of it. make sure u change both $Pixel_Size, $Spacing and make $Spacing bigger than $Pixel_Size. it's kinda slow. needs more optimizations.

you need char_def.au3.

banner.au3

Char_Def.au3

I like this idea - nice.

But without optimization it's VERY SLOW - unusable.

It could be optimized  the way using SetPixel instead of labels and using hidden memory bitmap & BitBlt from memory DC to window DC.

See BlackJack in examples where I did such optimizations.

I dont look at the source at all..

But with guictrlcreategrapic?

Hey I think this is cool. I made an LED sign in my microcomputer design course in college. This script follows the same technique, good job!

simpler, labels, lots of them.

it starts out fast because initially there are less labels to manipulate. and as it scrolls, it has to change more labels.

my code only changes the labels that have to be change and nothing more. i am not sure how to further optimize it..... :)
