1.71

Fixed: In some configurations (module, SD-Card, power-supply) after power-up "start.emc" not found is displayed.

02/28/2022

1.7

New commands and improvements:

Editbox: The wildcard character can now also be specified as a string

For already existing menus, the root and sub-sub menus can be redefined with #EMD

Combobox entries are redefined with #ECD and afterwards entries can be added with #ECA

Spinbox entries are redefined with #ESD and afterwards entries can be added with #ESA

Read object text numerically in registers (all partial spinboxes are interpreted together)

Windows BMP formats are now also natively supported for all images

Objects can now blink (#OVI 2) the current visible state will be inverted, therefore alternate blinking is also possible

Global blink time for objects adjustable #XBT

Filenames/Directories to StringArray #FNA, #FNB

File commands for direct reading/writing of variable types to/from registers/arrays

File commands for direct reading/writing to/from string arrays(binary) #FRQ, #FWQ

File commands for direct reading of numeric ASCII values in registers/arrays

File commands for direct reading of one line (up to \n) of ASCII/Unicode strings in string arrays #FRT, #FRZ

Calculation commands : Calculate a 32-bit spinboxentry from a decimal number with number of digits

Calculation commands: I2C master send/receive error queryable mstIE()

Calculation commands :Query position/size of child objects

Major Bugs:

sprintf leads in rare cases (e.g. with %.2f,%.1f) to an incorrect display or to a crash.

For an existing picturebox, the entries could not be deleted (#EPD) and less could be added (#EPA)

Editbox: if the wildcard character was changed or deleted with #SEW, the cursor was at a wrong position.

1.61

Fixed: Display does no longer start up with some/newer SD card after hardware reset.

1.6

New commands and improvements:

 Project encryption. Protect project against copy.

 PictureBox: Sliding menu including pictures / icons and text labels.

 Arrays: Besides Integer and float, now unicode array

 File write and read commands for array (#FWY, #FRY)

 Regular Expression to search and find in StringRegister and string arrays.

 Additional command to get hardcopy to object including background -> important for animations. (#XHB)

 Global activation / deactivation of touch panel (#TPE)

 Calculation commands: Get Obj-ID from drawing layer objLI()

 Calculation commands: Returnvalues working together with RegExp.

 Command syntax: All parameters can directly use array value e.g, A5I42, A0I(R7)...

 Command syntax: Stringparameter can use results from RegExp e.g. X0

Major Bugs:

 #XCO did not rotate the background

 #VRI, #VRF: If a register was used and assigned to itself together with a typechange, the result was wrong

 Creating a new object with a already used delete protected Obj-ID, both objects were alive with same Obj-ID.

11/20/2020

1.5

New commands and improvements:

 Additional global border for all objects with flag 64=OnlyRectangle (#TID) for touch query #TAA

 Possibility to specify 1/100 seconds for date/time printf (#SDP,#SDF,#SDC,#VSD,#WSA,#WSU,#YPD) and display it with the format %t   (e.g. stop watch with timer())

 Diagram commands: Lines with and without markers as value-time diagrams or XY diagrams with individual automatic labeling

 Calculation commands for the diagram functions e.g. finding the value for the last touch point diaLI()

 Calculation commands: n-th root sqrt(var,n)

 Calculation commands: Logarithm to base n log(var,n)

 Calculation commands: Convert time string automatically: strV(hh:mm or hh:mm:ss) and date (DD.MM.YYY or YYYY.MM.DD Seperator   is point, minus or slash) returns the datetime value in seconds

 Object can be assigned as marker for singlepath objects (GPL,GPF,GPP,GPT,GRR,GGP,GGS,GET,GEA,GES,GEP) #GPM

 Flag for fast drawing function for polylines (single lines) #GPO

Major Bugs:

 A touch icon without sound name returned the error message "File not Found:" in the terminal

 Change DrawStyle for vector graphics with only one path (#OCS) did not work with ColorRamps.

 With multi-touch operation, one of the two up-macros with simultaneous release was not executed

 Strings that were placed in the full send buffer are blocking bytewise until string end (Timeout * characters e.g. 2s * 100 characters =    

 200s > 03 min)

 Master-Interface: Array send is working only a maximum of 1024 Byte (now max. 65535 Byte)

 Command #VQA, sorting arrays reutrned mixed up order

 Command #VRO did not work with menu, combobox and spinbox

02/28/2020

1.4

Major Bugs:

  #TBO and groups. Not all childs got touch flags.

  In Stringfiles using Unicodenames as constants may lead to problems

  #XCU had wrong calculation (shifted with 1)

  Touchobjects with opacity of 1% weren't recognized with EA uniTFT070-A and EA uniTFT101-A
