RGB matrix example code

by Charxian on Thu Feb 21, 2013 1:28 pm

i can't get the example codes for the RGBmatrixPanel to compile. This is the error msg I get in the IDE
[quote]In file included from testcolors_16x32.cpp:6:
C:\Users\Charlene\Desktop\arduino-1.0.1\libraries\RGBmatrixPanel/RGBmatrixPanel.h:9: error: expected class-name before '{' token[code]
Thanks

Did you install the Adafruit GFX library?

Yes I did. I also tried the test shapes example and got this error msg when I tried to compile:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE

Still looks like trouble finding the Adafruit_GFX library. Make sure it's properly named and capitalized (and with the underscore), and that the folder's not double-nested inside there.

Thanks, that's what I had done wrong. Knew it was something silly! I'm blaming it on the weather.
